Current Employee - Project Architect in Los Angeles, CA

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

Pros

Great People, some of the best talent, Interesting projects, good clients, worldwide exposure, unlimited resources within the firm for learning, teaching, cross pollination of practice areas

Cons

favoritism,unequal application of promotion firmwide, easy to be associate in Lacrosse, very difficacult in Los Angeles politics, the usual, growing too fast, too many people for them to really focus on individuals, or mentor

Advice to ManagementAdvice

make sure employees are mentored and recognized for work-

REALLY BAD overtime policy, do you pay overtime or not because you say you always do but it is actuall pretty rare.!

    I worked at Gensler as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Gensler's office culture is very collaborative, and the company has strong values in sustainability, innovation, and high-quality work.

    Cons

    Since it is such a huge company, it can be difficult to network if you're in one of the big offices and between offices. Sometimes seemed a little isolated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would establish a strong internship program.
