I worked at Perkins & Will as an intern for 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 ManagementAdvice

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

Recommends
No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Perkins & Will full-time for more than 10 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

    hire someone competent to do your job then quit

    I have been working at Perkins & Will full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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