    Pros

    Broad architectural and engineering practice in higher education and government sectors, targeted expansion to health care through acquisition of other firms.
    Energy practice and historic preservation expertise.

    Cons

    Focus on cost-efficient project delivery, not balanced with design quality or best-service to clients.
    Shifting of staff assigned to projects results in repetitive learning, ineffective production and scheduling, as well as lowered staff morale.
    Stated objective of delivery of expertise not always achieved.
    Client satisfaction not consistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Deliver on promises.
    Take a long term view to build a better reputation.
    Investment of time and financial resources to improve a practice are worth it in the long run.
    Treat employees as valued colleagues and talent resources, not a commodity.

    Pros

    Pay isn't bad. There are opportunities for travel and internal training. Firm does interesting work in Higher Ed and Energy sectors.

    Cons

    Firm is poorly organized internally with made up positions to accommodate those who have been loyal and long-employed. Makes advancement opportunities unclear, at best, and at worst, limited to but a few.

    Pros

    Architecture staff are truly passionate about what they work on. Plans are to use cutting edge technology and resources to help productivity and keep current with competitors. HR staff is very good.

    Cons

    Engineers take a backseat to the architecture community (Big A, Little E). This varies depending on which office you land in, as there are many. Upper management doesnt seem to understand how things work "in the trenches". Too much focus on marketing and financial performance, not enough on a quality product. Lack of standards for drafting and design.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the quality of the products you provide, not the dollars you can create. A quality product will provide its own financial return. If you just try to make money, you lose sight of the relationship you want to build.

    I worked at EYP

    Pros

    Seems to have survived the downtown without major financial issues- which speaks to the health of the firm as a whole

    Cons

    Pay is so-so for technical staff. They will try to get off with paying you as less as possible if you do not fight for it. They will tout great benefits, but they add up to little in the end. The people who earn the most are the marketing folks, who earn more than twice the hourly amount paid to the technical staff on an average

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about revising pay scales
