    I worked at BSA LifeStructures as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Office location is prime and in a building with other prominent architecture firms. Great group of people to work with.

    Cons

    Several employees and management staff have been lured away by competing firms. Office management was not the best.

    Excellent work

    Pros

    Culture has improved recently. Management, in general, is great. Staff, including upper management is approachable. Hard work typically will pay off with opportunities. The sink or swim environment quickly identifies competence.

    Cons

    This type of business is sink or swim.. which is not necessarily a con. If you only survive with regimented training - this work is not for you. Sometimes a lack of professionalism with younger staff.

    Pros

    BSA has people with wealth of knowledge, very laid back and a great company to work for. Highly recommended for right out of college

    Cons

    BSA doesnt have competitive salaries, they expect you to work overtime and not get any benefits for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    compensation for employees should be given more preference

    Pros

    BSA LifeStructures is a Family based environment.
    The management team is focused on innovation within the A/E field.
    It is a client focused organization.
    The talent level of the existing staff is higher than most competitors.

    Cons

    The A/E industry is dealing with a very challenging environment.
    The majority of revenue is in the healthcare market which is being impacted significantly by government regulation.
    The Indianapolis location limits the ability to compete nationally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    BSA LifeStructures needs to continue to adopt technology to remain ahead of the pack in the A/E industry. BSALS also needs to continue to grow beyond it's current Midwest boundaries.

    Pros

    Good people and a nice atmosphere. Good support when the market is doing well. Promote community involvement to the employees.

    Cons

    Rough times have hit the firm hard. Management is scrambling to try to set things right but there is no communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to learn to communicate with the staff. There is a lot of talk among staff and many disgruntled employees
