Great Intern opportunities. They try to create a stimulating environment for interns.

Pros

Great people, good work-life balance

Cons

Though I got to work on pretty cool projects, most of the work are interior and retail. Though ok for many, not my favorite.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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