I have been working at Cooper Carry Inc. full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Wide range of project types
Large, complex projects

Cons

Old school hierarchical management
Diversity is lacking, particularly in upper management
Still struggling financially from recession
Quick to hire up for projects, quick to lay off in downturns
Chronic understaffing of projects
Quality control needs improvement
For a large firm, little training for seasoned staff or interns

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The old way of doing business may still work (for now) in the South. But the industry is global and you continue to limit your potential with hierarchical management. People who look like you are not the only talent that should be tapped. You are on a path to become less and less relevant in the world of "good design."

    Pros

    Great technology, good software they are at the front of the latest in the industry

    Cons

    Typical corporation, you are a number and if you are not the typical show off, speak your mind irreverent personality you won't climb.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop the extroverted trend of people that don't work but talk all day and give more prize to the introverted that work all day long and talk only when contributing great ideas that make sense.
