    Pros

    Why work for Cannon Design:
    - Competitive salary and benefits
    - Great physical work environment & location
    - If you're an architect....you'll typically be well respected.

    Cons

    Why you should be wary:
    - You need to always be at the top of your game...otherwise your expendable.
    - If you're not an architect...you're expendable.
    - You need to watch your back...from both colleagues and senior management.
    - They're not that great at recognition of individual contributions...unless you're one of the golden childs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start to walk your talk by mentoring and leading your officer management team members. If they don't feel they have your support how do you think they will excell at what they do! Your ability to encourage is limited yet your ability to demotivate is very strong...you need to reverse this.

    I worked at CannonDesign full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    While at CannonDesign, I was able to work with some truly amazing and talented people. The passion required to keep going in this field is immense, and it is palpable working on project teams. The commitment to sustainable design is admirable, and the company is moving more and more in that direction as time goes on. There were a lot of opportunities to grow. If you are willing to take on more responsibility, that seems to always be an option, and sometimes a requirement.

    Cons

    There was no formal training or support for those beginning a career here. I was lucky enough to work on team with higher level employees that were ready and willing to take time to guide younger employees, but there were still gaps. The amount of work expected of lower level staff, within tight time constraints, is insane. Especially when no overtime is offered, and minimal, if any, recognition is given. In my experience, raises and promotions are sporadic and hard to come by, and at times it seemed that management would "play favorites" in this regard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should get a better handle on yearly reviews. More transparency on how to achieve promotions and raises would also be beneficial. Formal training programs for entry level employees could be a plus. Most importantly, a healthier approach to work-life balance would make working here a lot more appealing.
