    I have been working at Gilsanz Murray Steficek full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Open office environment, friendly coworkers. People actually hang out with coworkers after work. The main partners are great to work with and approachable.

    Cons

    No respect for employees as people. When I first started I was paid minimum wage, even though I had a masters.

    The junior partners are primarily focused interior fit out, renovation, and roll out work. The company will not have large scale, high rise jobs once the main partners retire. There are many talented people now but most will leave for this reason.

    Unequal treatment of men and women. Men are required to do field work, women are not.

    Little room for growth. I worked there for 5 years and was denied promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice. The older partners are on their way out and don't care. The younger partners do not want advice.

    I worked at Gilsanz Murray Steficek as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Small, friendly environment lends itself well to internships (probably more so than full-time careers), everyone is very willing to teach and help learn, able to work on a range of projects, work directly with partners as an intern, very social atmosphere

    Cons

    Many of the same qualities that make it so great as an internship location would limit it as a full time career

    I worked at Gilsanz Murray Steficek

    Pros

    It's a great place for a young Structural Engineer to start their career. The company has a lot of young people working for them, which is good socially. And SUMMER HOURS!

    Cons

    Dealing with some of the subpar administrative personnel can be very taxing for all levels of employees. Some partners are better than others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would have less chiefs and more indians. It would also be beneficial to acquire (and keep) a strong administrative staff.

    I worked at Gilsanz Murray Steficek

    Pros

    Design expertise, support of in-house continuing education, strong local professional connections with other firms and collateral professional organizations.

    Cons

    Disorganized management, chaotic work environment, no administrative support for lower level professional staff, disengaged Partners in the well-being of lower level professional staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Assign administrative assistants to lower level engineering and architecture staff, improve office space conditions: sanitation (rats and mice), customization of individual office spaces (high drafting tables, better chairs, more individualized climate and lighting controls); and full reimbursement of continuing education and licensure preparation courses and examinations, and better support and encouragement for younger staff to attend conferences and present papers.
