Projects types may provide great experience though work commitment expectations are often excessive with limited rewards

Project Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Steinberg Architects full-time

ProsGreat range of projects; Great people to work with. Some PMs are great mentors.

ConsGenerally understaffed to meet schedules; Management unresponsive to balancing current needs vs. marketing vs networking. Limited support from Principals. Design process sporadic. Easy to get pigeon-hold for assignments.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe accessible and supportive of staff; Listen to staff; Reward staff.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Broad range of good projects and experiences

Senior Manager (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

I worked at Steinberg Architects full-time for more than 10 years

ProsProjects are generally high quality in the type and attention to design with quality clients. Generally good availability of good quality staff.

ConsDesign process can get bogged down by going through multiple redesigns. Focus on internal finances can trump quality approach to project and staff.

Good experience

Job Captain (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

I worked at Steinberg Architects

ProsLots of resources, reasonable interest in design, supportive of work/life balance, continuing education, valued employees by offering training and support

ConsUpper management disconnected with staff below PM level, Easy to get pigeonholed if you don't fight for yourself

Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be helpful to get feedback on project staffing requirements from the production staff as well as from Project managers. Some managers tend to wait until the last minute to ask for presentation or other submittal materials when it could have been requested earlier, allowing production staff the ability to plan out the work within the work days. If upper management attended more company functions they might relate better to the rest of the staff.
