    Pros

    A lot of great talent residing in the office. Having access to a variation of building and program typology helps if you are interested in learning or new getting experience. Management willing to listen and help provide what you the experience you want.

    Cons

    Mainly the squeaky wheels get the attention. For those that are more reserved and quiet, unfortunately won't get the attention they deserve.

    Pros

    The name looks good on your resume. Free lunch during meetings. A lot to learn if given the opportunity.

    Cons

    The pay. Although they have money they tend to give it out to people that they are afraid to lose. They tend to overwork employees. Politics.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being greedy. Stop overworking people so much. Stop with the office politics. Pay people what they deserve.

    Pros

    The firm is committed to improving, which is very encouraging. On the other hand there is resistance to this commitment because of what feels like a lack of engagement from some of the employees. But overall the firm is investing and promoting a stronger design culture, training opportunities for the employees, better technical support. Some of the leadership offers great opportunities for personal growth and encourage younger staff to take ownership, while others are more controlling and guarded.

    Cons

    Some of the above comments mention cons. Occasional lack of communication between leadership can be frustrating. Internal culture for seemingly little things such as recycling is pretty weak.

    Advice to Management

    Providing some additional perks/rewards for good performance, leadership could help promote engagement. A more active but informal mentorship program could help with that too.

    Pros

    PE has a lot of interesting projects and clients around the world. Additionally, the firm is growing and there is potential for promotion.

    Cons

    Not a big fan of the layout of the NYC office with rows upon rows of desks. I'd personally prefer a small cubicle over the new workstations.

    Advice to Management

    Company culture is great- continue to invest in employees professional development.
