    I worked at S/L/A/M Collaborative full-time for more than 3 years

    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!

    Good for the few at the top. Just do what you're told and don't offer suggestions.

    I worked at S/L/A/M Collaborative

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
