    I have been working at VOA Associates

    Pros

    Decent benefits, work hours are good for the industry (8:30-5:30),depending on the office a passion for design

    Cons

    old school architecture firm management style (i.e. Midwestern, boys club mentality-little diversity in composition or thought in upper management)
    poor communication from management on staffing and project budget
    reviews are arbitrary and pay raises minimal

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow junior and intermediate staff to have more project responsibilities so that the can improve their design and business skills.

    I worked at VOA Associates full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    General staff is pleasant, professional and talented
    Office is beautiful and in a great location
    Good benefits and fair pay
    Hours: flexible schedules. People worked overtime when deadlines loomed but it was not the norm.
    Design: a fairly high level of design considering this office focused on more corporate work

    Cons

    -Seemed like there was not a great deal of upward mobility in the company unless someone left. Lots of titles but that did not necessarily translate to additional design experience or responsibilities
    - not a lot of transparency as far as how the business was run or project profitability
    -reviews were sporadic

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - provide more opportunities for staff more feedback and the opportunity to move up and develop their career
