    Pros

    The leadership of the firm understands what it takes to be one of the largest and most successful firms of its kind in the world.

    Cons

    Because of the "go/no-go" process, the firm is very selective in the projects they accept.

    Advice to Management

    From Mr. Dalluge to the leadership in everything Department, there seems to be a coordinated, strategic approach to the management of the firm that helps every office and market thrive.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Fun and diverse environment. Many interesting projects from various clients/markets. Excellent support from upper management for growth and learning.

    Cons

    Work-life was not balanced well from top-management down. Common work weeks included 50hrs on average. Most exempt employees did not get compensated for overtime. Advancement was somewhat limited.

    Pros

    Good People, doing good work for their clients. Plenty of opportunity for growth and education.

    Cons

    Difficult to progress within the company unless you were an Electrical Engineer or Architect.

    Advice to Management

    If I were to share something with upper management it would be simply to listen more to their employees and their needs, to grow within the company. Offer more Non-professional courses to your office service departments.

    Pros

    Some opportunities for doing good work at the local office level.

    Cons

    Many changes and poor long term vision, all investment in staff attempts are undercut by enterprise leadership in sole goal of keeping their positions.

    Advice to Management

    Balance your specific goals while respecting your production staff. A companies culture is not only the projects that get done but the people that help to make it a place that they are proud to be apart of.

    Pros

    Variety of projects, good teammate

    Cons

    No consideration for production level employee, treat their personal time (after working hours, weekend, holidays) as regular working hours. Starting salary is fair but very minimal raise after that, frequent of firing people instead of one big layoff

    Advice to Management

    Most of management level people are only concern about themselves instead of take care of the overall problem or what they can help for people who actually work for the firm

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on great projects with good people. Encourage career development.

    Cons

    Horrible benefits. Worst I have been offered in my career to date. Very poor tuition reimbursement program.

    Advice to Management

    Look around at other firms in the AE industry and try to keep up. Offer a competitive benefits and compensation package that won't leave employees broke if god forbid something were to happen.

    Pros

    The company is big enough to be an industry player worldwide, but small enough to get to know most of your coworkers and feel like you have each other's back.

    Talent and teaming skills are valued, whether you're a beginner, a veteran, or anywhere in-between.

    A newly formed corporate team is putting new ideas into play, and the ideas are welcomed.

    If you're interested in working abroad, the opportunities are there.

    Cons

    It's probably a challenge to find and recruit female and minority architects and engineers, but the company would benefit from having the broader viewpoint more diversity brings.

    Advice to Management

    Do whatever it takes to recruit and hire the very best people. And know that the best people need to be even better at listening and observing than they are at talking.

    Pros

    I have been with the firm for 5 years and have been through three major individual growth training programs built around leadership, stewardship and team building. The firm continues to invest in this training even through difficult times. While its not perfect, their continual efforts to better the organization and grow is refreshing and honest. There is greater transparency and bolder design. Have seen a great deal of promotion from within over the last several years.

    Cons

    All large companies take time to make change, so changes are not always rapid. We are too tolerant of whiners.

    Advice to Management

    Continue investing in individual development, building the leaders for tomorrow from within
