I worked at Gensler full-time for 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 have been working at Gensler full-time

    Pros

    Working with talented, creative people on amazing projects.
    Feels like a family.
    People are friendly; those that are hired and turn out not to be usually find a way out, because they can't hack the positive vibe.
    Very entrepreneurial--if you have a vision of doing something and the ability, Gensler will give you room to try it out.

    Cons

    Design doesn't pay as well as other industries.
    Has it's share of office politics--but not as much as others in this industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't get too corporate. Keep it real.
