    Pros

    I was told that Gensler pays very well, but somehow I don't feel that way. The amount of hours and stress that I have to deal with and then I look at my check and think... Really?! If management likes you, you will have a great career here, but if not then whatever you do it will not matter.

    Cons

    Work life balance, there is none.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm speechless...

    Pros

    Commitment to design. Great highly motivated work force. Industry respect. Motivation to advance the status quote.

    Cons

    Work life balance is bad. It's even worse when considering what employees are Compensated. Most company initiatives are employee volunteer efforts and have little company backing beyond a verbal or spoken support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a great company. Take the passion for design and Create a culture of success in business, community and family life. Employees are so slammed they don't make connections in the community. They marginalized their family relationships and they aren't even bring home decent pay check?! Something needs to change!
