  3.  

    A good experience in general but with negative aspects that make it not worth the trip.

    I have been working at DLZ full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Once I was there for over a year, the staff warmed up and I made good friends with 97%.

    Cons

    Administrative Coordinator and Staff are negative and prone to attack, willy nilly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice. The issues they have are long-term. If they don't see them now then they never will.

    I worked at DLZ

    Pros

    Benefits are standard. Management is laid back and does not micromanage. Salary is slightly above average. Good coworkers.

    Cons

    It’s all about money. If you don’t produce income, you’re out. It’s cheap, high pressure car sales. Infighting between architecture/engineering is a big drag on morale. Company will sacrifice long term client relationships to achieve a quarterly goal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a new DLZ Ohio president that has the best interests of clients in mind instead of DLZ’s bottom line. Focus on quality, not who you can lay off next.

    I worked at DLZ

    Pros

    leeway with job performance; challenging work; better than average pay; very good benefits

    Cons

    little feedback or mentoring from supervisors; despotic; inter-office bickering undermines teamwork

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify your human capital and hire different worker types, ages, genders, and personalities. Improve team- and consensus-building.
