    Pros

    Famous Starchitect... Exceptional resume booster... Chance to work at the pinnacle o design with one of the most respected firms out there. All the projects in the office are very meaningful and very interesting. If you are a student in school or just finished, this is the place to be. It is highly competitive to get in, but the office is kind and feels much like a large studio.

    Cons

    You will most likely be a cog in the machine... high turnover in lowly employees because a lateral move elsewhere may be the best way to be "promoted". You will not be recognized for the work you do on projects. There are few "real world" parameters on designers... no budgets... no engineering constraints... consultants and higher-ups will figure out those things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One of the better Starchitect firms around... The pay is very fair and the experience is definitely meaningful
