    Lack luster company that is self-opinionated.

    Architectural Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Ontario, CA

    ProsVery few, if any, pros - this company is too full of itself and does not respect those that are actually doing all the work.

    ConsToo many to list - Management is clueless and just puts on a good dog and pony show.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis is supposed to be an Architectural firm, yet the upper management consists of a bunch of non-licensed individuals, including the CEO!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Collective Narcissism

    Designer (Current Employee)
    Ontario, CA

    ProsPlenty of parlor games and social activities if you are into that. Weekly industry lunch and learns. The built environment is kind of cool but a little dated. The owners put out the leftovers from the catered lunches for the staff.

    ConsThe design is a little un-inspiring. Ambivalence at the senior management level. Out of touch board of directors. Everyone running for political cover because politics is endemic. No money to get the work done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdvice cannot be given to fix this. It might be too late.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Think twice

    Architectural Project Manager (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsThis firm has some very good talented staff recruited during it's prime and some nice work environments. Lots of social activities for those who desire.

    ConsPoor Leadership, communication, and firm-wide direction. The company wants to now run itself "Old School" and there is a noticeable decrease in workload. Inconsistency in quality and process between offices. Efficiency and profitability is not recognized, but "who you know" is.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    legacy firm with strong tradition and committment to excel.

    Senior Staff (Current Employee)
    Ontario, CA

    Prosfirm leadership strives to do the right thing with a committment to invest in its staff. recently converted to an esop. instills programs to benefit staff development promoting professional and personal growth.

    Consstruggles with communication and transparency, particullarly phylisophical differences between generations and addressing performance intervention. at times finds itself going in circles because of its committment to remain relevant and be everything to everyone.

    Advice to Senior Managementlet the cream rise, continue on track with its committments but be honest in its self evaluation with respect to others evaluations and perspectives.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Stressful to say the least!

    Architectural Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Ontario, CA

    ProsGenerally friendly staff, knowledgable co-workers.

    ConsA seriously political place to work - it's WHO you know and NOT what you know if you want to get ahead.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership is in a world of their own - if you are in the circle, you have it made. If not, forget it. About time to get off your high horses.

    There is an obvious problem with Senior Level Management, and a huge lack of recognition for hard work.

    Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsA lot of paid time off, good 401k plan, half day Fridays, overtime optional.

    ConsLack of training, poor leadership, and dirty politics.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure you give deep background checks when hiring for Senior Level Management. Also, constantly laying off solid workers creates a poor team moral, and creates an environment where people feel the need to lie, cheat and steal to get ahead.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
