Pros – You work on very interesting projects, the people are great to work with, flexible hours, great work atmosphere
Cons – Management tends to struggle with communication, they tend to treat non-architects (landscape architects, interior designers, and engineers) as second class citizens, Principals need to improve communication with staff. Very often work is promised to clients without discussing with project managers or studio leaders. It is not right when a Principal promises a client a project by a certain date without consulting your managers. Then the team is spending the weekend in the office while the Principal is in Cape Cod. Lead by example!
Advice to Senior Management – Show respect and value the talent you have. You never know where good suggestions will come from.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Good Designers, Some exciting projects
Cons – Lack of mentoring, lack of communication to employees. Performance appraisals based on the old 'number system' rating. No vehicles for communication to management. Indifference to 'worker bees'. Bonuses were nowhere near what was represented. Raises were minimal once pay is established regardless of performance.
Advice to Senior Management – Recognize efforts of employees at all levels. Involve employees in issues and let all be part of the solution. Communicate with employees and don't isolate upper management from the rest of the staff.
