    Pros

    SHoP truly cares about the work that's being produced at the office. I had a wonderful experience during my summer internship.

    Cons

    As an intern, I think I was pretty luck to work on a design project and that is why my experience was great but some of the other interns spent their summers making models which is fun but maybe not as fulfilling in terms of the experience you're gaining.

    Pros

    Good people and interesting projects.

    Cons

    Disorganized, a large number of senior staff are not appropriately skilled or experienced for their positions. The firm is poorly organized and was not able to handle the growth in work and staff during the last few years I was there.

    Pros

    Great office culture, some of the highest salaries in the industry and a true commitment to heightening the state of architecture. Big dreamers who are making it come true.

    Cons

    Formulaic design strategy can (in certain phases) seem stifling, but innovation and openness to unique project typologies and formal languages continue to make this a terrific environment to work and learn.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.

    Pros

    Oportunities to learn Design independence High quality Co-Workers

    Cons

    Lack of senior staff Many projects don't get built

    Advice to Management

    Pursue more bread and butter projects. Good design doesn't always have to be front cover. The office has the potential to make seemingly mundane commisions hi design. This is the strength of the office, not just making glossy curtain walls.
