I worked at Gensler full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Lots of job responsibility, diverse projects to provide you with an opportunity to grow your skills, you're not treated like an intern but instead looked at as being equal, large workforce to provide many opportunities to grow and learn from your peers, great way to learn about different manufacturers in the business as they are always eager to speak with you when you tell them your with Gensler

Cons

Easy to get placed in a niche. Sometimes there can be many late nights making it difficult to take advantage of industry events.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to communicate with your employees to discover new areas of interest to allow them to expand and grow as a designer.

    I worked at Gensler full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    None, unless you count the ability to survive such a bad environment as a pro for your future growth

    Cons

    Terribly political organization that has a rigid caste system with employees at the bottom of the rung.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of issuing sound bites you might try walking the walk versus just talking the talk

    Very intense and sometimes unmanageable deadlines. Not enough structure or adherence to standardized procedures.
