    I have been working at Foster + Partners

    Pros

    Kudos
    Colleagues are inspiring and creative - you will become very close to them given the amount of time you spend in the office!
    Diversity and superiority of projects compared to other firms

    Cons

    Long hours and you can only get a taxi home on the company from 11pm onwards - a few of my colleagues have been mugged after leaving the office on foot after 10pm.
    Lack of recognition for good work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are not prepared to financially reward people who make outstanding contributions, perhaps enforce a scheme whereby they are recognised in another way. Promotions are too few and far between.
