Approves of CEO

I worked at Gensler full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great people, no attitudes (that;s hard to find in the architecture industry). Lots of opportunities to travel. Pay for overtime.

Cons

Pay structure is not good. They consider your bonuses as part of your salary. Difficult to advance your career

Advice to Management

Do away with bonus system. As the largest architecture firm in the world your compensation package should be above (not below) the industry average.

    I worked at Gensler full-time

    Pros

    Professional growth, profit sharing...keep working hard everyone...my balance is growing!

    Cons

    Politics, lack of strong upper management in some offices,

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire staff that is not qualified, just because they are inexpensive or 'cute'. Senior staff has enough to do without mentoring 1/2 the team. 1 experienced member can handle the work of 3 "newbies". Lead by example, not just propaganda.

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

    Pros

    Positive community, lots of co-curricular activities to help you meet those outside your studio, great project portfolio to learn from, mentor-driven culture, good pay and bonus program

    Cons

    Hard to get out of your studio, especially if you're not very involved with activities; can get "stuck" with one project manager for multiple projects if they want to keep you, which limits your exposure to other mentoring opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Especially with younger employees, try to focus on maximizing their exposure to different project types, management types and client situations
