I have been working at Gensler full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

First 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.

Cons

Everybody 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Gensler full-time

    Pros

    Get to work with some of the best and diverse industry talent

    Cons

    No REAL teamwork , Highly political senior staff , Overworked underpaid unhappy staff, lack of mentorship, frequent working weekends

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do you have a plan in place for your Boston office, or is this office just meant to attract projects which are eventually planned/ designed by NY ?? Do you really want to train your staff to stay competitive with industry partners or train them to internally step over each others shoes in the name of healthy competition to improve quality of work ?? Hope the senior management wakes up and does something about the work culture and the undercurrent of office politics openly practiced by senior staff that is turning the office environment toxic
