Pros

Wonderful culture, high quality of design and encouragement from management for community involvement. I highly enjoyed my time working there, especially as someone who was very involved in the internal culture.

Cons

It is definitely a corporate environment, for better or worse. You must work with a variety of people, project types and levels of management to advance and that isn't always an easy task to accomplish.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create more opportunities for younger staff to work in different typologies and with different studios. It seems that once a person is assigned a studio, and subsequently a project type (i.e. retail, commercial, etc.), it is very difficult to gain experience in other areas.

  1. Dallas office is all about "appearance", not value for the client

    Pros

    Overall compensation seems to be fair compared to other companies. The office appearance including the reception and employee area is nice and not forboding at all.

    Cons

    No respect for the hard workers that do accurate work and make the office profitable...there is political pressure to look good, instead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember who brought you to the "dance". A lot of people are now gone that should still be there. Treatment of the employee should be just as important as treatment of the client.
