    I have been working at RTKL Associates full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been able to learn a lot about architecture since I have been here. Office culture is good and is getting better. Benefits have improved over the years. Work-life balance is improving, however, when there are deadlines, the balance goes away.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges are making sure the right staff is hired with the right skillsets. Sometimes companies hire warm bodies, and that is not always a good thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management may travel a lot, however, it behooves them to still make time for subordinates. Need to let the staff know they are important.

    Nice people, leave newer designers out of the loop a bit which makes them feel like interns rather than part of the team
