    I have been working at Grimshaw-Architects

    Pros

    broad scope of work. friendly people. global offices and opportunities to work abroad. competent and friendly partners (also relatively young).

    Cons

    same cons that are prevalent in the architectural field in general. the new office still needs alot of work....not to mention the commute to even get to work (along with west side highway). could do with more social activities. salary reviews and progression needs to be implemented better, and/or conveyed more clearly.
