I have been working at Gensler full-time for more than a year

Pros

Over-time pay, Freedom to move around studios/ offices and have the opportunity to explore different design sectors.
Collaborative environment.

Cons

Work is entirely design/branding/marketing oriented. Not a lot of experience/ care in construction documents, documentation skills. If you are a junior person is bad for your fundamentals. If you are experienced, you can really show off and advance. Lower salaries than other big offices - but they pay over time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too many projects with tight budget and schedule = not good for design excellence. Many people fill that ideas are just copy/paste from one project to the other.
