You are your only limitation! Gensler is a place where you have the leverage to achieve anything you want.

Project Manager (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

ProsFirst and foremost- GREAT CLIENTS! Very entrepreneurial in professional development and career pathing, high design - business savvy, talented individuals around every corner, awesome culture and people, expectations are high but the sky is the limit to accomplish anything you want, supportive management, thought leaders, fun and inspiring.

ConsEverybody works very hard (often a lot of OT) and there is pressure to do the same...so your work-life balance is difficult to manage at times. Total compensation is distributed among 4 vehicles, so base salary is only in the middle of the pack with other similar size firms...a little harder to get used to for early career professionals.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore autonomous style management practices should be used. Consider better ways of recognizing licensure (ie, a raise, even small, would be nice)!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
