    Pros

    Opportunity to work with talented colleagues, wonderful people.

    Cons

    Salaries delayed for as much as 3-4 months on regular basis. Health insurance cancelled (without notice) several times - 2011 and 2012. No supplies - sometimes no plotter, no copier paper, or copier, toner. Staff stranded overseas due to nonpayment of hotel bills. Evicted from office once. 401k payments, transit pretax payments, health savings funds not remitted to vendor.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the business to professionals who are architects. Pay your employees and vendors in full.

    Pros

    Interesting International work. There was allot of positive things to talk about with the firm before the 2008 crash. Highly Focus on invoicing and receiving billables

    Cons

    The pay and benefits are very unstable at the present time. Staff have gone with weeks and a few times months without pay. Company does not pay consultants which leads to difficulties with project deadlines. All of the talented staff has left the firm or are motivated to find positions with other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to learn to communicated better with staff.

    Pros

    Friendly, supportive environment. A great group of very talented architects. You will learn a lot by working here. A diverse mix of projects both in type and scale and region. Great views from the 24th floor.

    Cons

    The office is riding on the success of previous projects. The bulk of projects are from the Hillier legacy. Continuing financial pressures and an overall lack of leadership to ride out the 2nd recession of 2011.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, spacious office, short commute

    Cons

    New management doesn't know the business and does not seem to care about staff.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for Senior Management who are Architects to make some on the strategic decisions.

    Pros

    nice co-workers; nice town (Princeton)

    Cons

    Sometimes the promotions seem quite unfair and capricious. Employee's talents and efforts are not always recognized. Agree with the previous comment on the "British" part.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone fairly. Pay your dues.

    Pros

    Have a great work ethic towards projects that i've never scene in other large scale offices. Project types may vary; however, they are on a large scale and give you the opportunities to express your own designs and ideas to clients.

    Cons

    Large scale offices such as rmjm, tend to have problems promoting and recognizing people's efforts on projects.
