I have been working at Elkus-Manfredi Architects full-time for more than a year
Pros – Overall, the firm treats employees well...no frills or extras but covers all of the benefits. Most importantly though, the people are friendly and nice.
Cons – In regards to workload, some studios work more than others. Also, skills are not used wisely. You may have a 50 year old with 20 years of experience doing something that a junior architect should be doing.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Elkus-Manfredi Architects full-time for more than a year
Pros – It is one of the most professional places that I have worked. Very organized and consistent; management not too top heavy. Pays well, good bonuses. They seem to put the money back to the employees. The office is good at getting work.
Cons – The office can be a little cold, and I do not mean temperature. Not a welcoming place and very little social atmosphere. Employees are expected to work extra hours frequently.
Advice to Senior Management – Relax, and say hello to some of your employees more often, even if you don't know them. Don't be so suspicious of them.

I have been working at Elkus-Manfredi Architects
Pros – They are involved in projects at every scale, from small common room renovations to master planning, multi-building development, and major institutional buildings.
Cons – The office has a strong hierarchy which is intimidating to an intern architect, and doesn't foster mentorship as much as it could.
Advice to Senior Management – Embrace and encourage participation from everyone in the firm. Many projects seem to be top-down in their structure, which makes contributions from team members more difficult.
