    Pros

    They are willing and able to compensate you for your continuimg education and there are plenty of in office opputunities to continue your learning for credits as well. The culture is good and they seem to value people as individuals and there are bi-annual reviews to allow for good dialogue between you and upper managment.

    Cons

    The pay is low and it is said that the bonus makes up for the low compensation. The bonus is on par with the rest of the firms in the industry and it simply brings your overall compensation to market value. This is a great firm with top with prestigious clients and every year they have better earnings, why not share some of the b\value the employees have helped earn.

  2. Great place for aspiring architects, pretty good for interior designers, not so great for people most other areas.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    You get a lot of exposure to different kinds of projects, with a focus on large-scale. Different departments share exciting work or projects weekly, so you get an idea of the scope or work, insights on clients, education on challenges and limitations of field, etc.

    Cons

    If you're not an architect or interior designer, the people who run the place often don't understand your needs - they are architects, and understand architecture.

    Advice to Management

    If upper management could figure out a way to make themselves more accessible, they would get a lot of valuable input from their employees. This would need to go beyond simply saying that they're accessible.
