    Amazing variety of projects and talented people.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGreat creative projects. Designers are encouraged to take risks and experiment. Many smart, talented designers.

    ConsDysfunctional work culture. The company has very little concern for career development, and the review process is haphazard.

    Super creavtive

    Designer (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGet to work with hyper creative people and get to learn from one of the best design teams.

    ConsThey only typically do up to design development so if you're looking for a place that will teach you construction, this will not be the place to learn.

    Great projects,but not a great place to work

    Architectural Designer/Project Manager (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGlamour projects and top Clients
    Top firm for Hospitality,Restaurant and Entertainment design
    Very casual environment

    ConsCompetitive with many Design Divas (not always really talented).
    Everyone smiles at you, but people are often not collaborative. Sometimes they talk behind your back to avoid sharing responsiblities in case of a problem.
    Long hours
    Office is caothic and with a lack of leadership.
    Frequent changes in the team with new hiring and laid offs

    Advice to Senior ManagementAssign precise responsibilities and goals. Motivate people in staying and make people more collaborative. Just allowing the employees in bringing their dog at work, or inviting them to an happy hour doesn't mean that it's a cool place to work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Hi ceiling for experience, Low ceiling for salary growth

    Architect (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsRockwell Group offers the opportunity for young & talented designers to work on high-profile and high-interest hospitality, retail, and other projects. The studio is pleasant, casual, and comfortable, and the coworkers are generally wonderful people. I've made more friends while here than at any other firm. There's often a happy hour somewhere in the office, which is conveniently located near almost everything fun.

    Also, bring your (well-behaved) puppy to work, and wear whatever you want.

    ConsAs with many design firms, they do allow for a great deal of financial advancement in the firm. Hours tend to be long, paid holidays are few, and there are limited vacation days. This tends to lead to a high turnover.

    Additionally, one could argue that they often give too much leeway to younger (read: inexperienced) designers that can lead to project mismanagement or an inconsistent quality of work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet's reward people who are interested in staying a bit longer than the average couple years. Perhaps if there was a plan in place to compensate project-manager-level employees, they would want to stay.
