I have been working at Gensler full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Very collaborative, well-respected firm. Great company culture that encourages entrepreneurship, collegiality and community involvement. Bonus program and PS/ESOP programs can be very rewarding to those who stay with the firm for a long time.

Cons

Big company, so sometimes making changes to processes/policies can take time. The Regional structure helps to offset this somewhat given the fact that the regions still have quite a bit of independence and latitude to explore new practices/methodologies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't let the growth of the company turn it into a bureaucracy.

    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

    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
