No opinion of CEO

I worked at Perkins & Will as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Access to broad range of resources Attracts high quality people Great sense of community Allowed for autonomy within a supportive structure Very positive atmosphere

Cons

No strict internship program - highly subjective to the specific offices area of focus fairly large office makes it difficult to know many people No office in my current city

Advice to Management

It could be helpful to pair interns with specific mentors - the group I was with did a great job, but when in doubt, it's nice to have a "go-to" person

    Pros

    money and seeing how things shouldn't be done, access to resources is above average, due to turn over you do get to meet a lot of new people

    Cons

    ego driven disaster catering to the few survivors incapable of working for another company, arbitrary advancement based on relationships with ill equipped management.

    Advice to Management

    hire someone competent to do your job then quit

    Pros

    strong firmwide development programs that grow employees in the area of design, innovation, project management, and leadership.

    offices are led by senior architects with no business management background. decisions are made based on assumptions and designers' personal preferences.

    Advice to Management

    Let designers design, marketers market, and proven managers manage and make business decisions.
