    Pros

    The projects are amazing, and the design documents are always in high quality.
    Almost the best work-life balance, and good for us to pursue certificates.

    Cons

    For beginners, seems a bit less intense. Not that much opportunities to get in touch with principles.

    Pros

    initial experience was greatly positive, there are many obvious perks that are offered (yoga classes, in house art exhibits,) also many young talented designers who work here

    Cons

    the firm is a long standing establishment with over 200 employees, change and flexible structure is not something that happens quickly

    Advice to Management

    suggestions would include less structured presentations/meetings and more simplified conversations addressing the firm's vision/ design/ goals
