Former Employee - Architectural Designer in San Francisco, CA

I worked at Gensler as an intern for less than a year

Pros

I enjoyed how friendly and welcoming the office was, the quality of the work, different disciplines represented, and the work hard/play hard culture. Coworkers took time to teach me and took an interest in the quality of my internship.

Cons

As an intern, I wasn't assigned any design tasks and wasn't a full member of the design team (though I expected this).

    I have been working at Gensler full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great culture, creative people and lots of awesome design. The clients are top notch and so is the work on all levels.

    Cons

    Lots of overtime, though they do pay for it. Bonus days celebration money and extra holiday parties should go into employee compensation instead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be aware of and give breaks to over-exerted staff. Don't be afraid to set some rules and practice some discipline.

    I have been working at Gensler full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Innovative, entrepreneurial and collaborative work environment/mindset.
    Smart people who are leaders in their field and approach design holistically
    Great firmwide support resources that you don't get in smaller firms
    Ability to work on projects you want to work on

    Cons

    One firm approach sometimes difficult to balance with local/entreprenuerial approach

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to drive innovation in not only design but management. Don't get stuck stale in management approach or practices.
