NTD Architects Reviews
Pros – Management allowed for freedom of employees. No micromanaging. Good work-life balance.
Cons – Company merged with another company, tried to grow too fast and wasn't managed well. Has dwindled from 300+ employees into a small struggling company.
Advice to Senior Management – Value your employees. Focus on delivering good quality product to clients. Come to work as lead by example.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Mostly good people to work with. Lots of extracurricular activities and camaraderie. Options to move between office studios. Pleasant office work spaces in all offices locations.
Cons – Company had several significant changes over the past few years resulting in much downsizing of the company. Released CFO, COO and CEO all within a period of a few years. Current senior management is not skilled enough to successfully run a multi-office firm. Not as well known for their expertise in Healthcare and Education as they once were.
Advice to Senior Management – Pad your pockets a little less, and reward your employees for their hard work. Get more input from your employees, they are your most valuable asset.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Not much to describe but just an OK environment.
Cons – Not too much increase in salaries and bonuses
Advice to Senior Management – To get the employees enjoy working the company, employer should reconized the all hard working eamployees.
Pros – Salary is fair, very good designers on staff
Cons – Employees don't get CA experience, because they have a separate CA department. Upper management seems out of touch with the employees, not much of a personal connection. The employees have low morale because of the massive layoffs that have plagued NTD recently.
Advice to Senior Management – If you're laying off almost half of your workforce and forcing everyone to take a pay cut, maybe upper management should get rid of their company-paid luxury cars!

Pros – The workforce has a lot of experienced Architects, PM's and CA's. People are great to work with in my studio.
Cons – Principals/Partners are extremely cheap when rewarding bonus and salary increase. Lucky if you get .50 raise a year or none at all. One Principal purposely delays these talks in order to gain the upper hand in determining your salary increase. Its very sad too because as employees we work long hours, weekends and nights to get the job done during Production. We deliver the project as per schedule therefore we should be rewarded financially for our efforts.
Advice to Senior Management – unless there is new blood in terms of upper management there is no chance for the company to grow and be a strong competitor in architectural practice.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
