    I worked at Teng as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    This was my first architectural internship and I was able to gain experience in a wide range of project types and capacities. Field office management, producing as-builts as well as construction drawings.

    Cons

    As an entry level employee, you have little direct contact with the client, as in most large firms. Also the large engineering capacity of this firm puts it in a different category than your average architecture firm.

    Pros

    Professional management and approach to projects. Keeping the highest standard work ethics.

    Cons

    There's no cons from employee's perspective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    when you set the employees' salary too high, it's tough to win a public service contract.

    I worked at Teng full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Teng, previous to acquisition by exp, was the most entrepreneurial company I worked for. The organization, compensation, and mentality were focused on allowing each sector leader to build his/her own business unit. The firm grew dramatically over the years I was there.

    Cons

    The company had one authoritarian leader that was very good at his job but no succession plan, leading to Teng's eventual acquisition. The new management discarded the uniqueness that made Teng successful in order to create a more homogeneous international company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The employees need a leader to follow. Uniqueness should be encouraged, not eliminated.

    I have been working at Teng

    Pros

    Purchased by exp US Services. Hopefully, more opportunities will become available. However, a lot of people leaving since business is down.

    Cons

    Benefits are subpar. It is difficult to obtain training. Information is not readily available. One large project is a huge part of the business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come out of your offices and listen to the employees in all of the offices, not just Chicago. There is valuable talent in all locations.

    Pros

    Great work environment, nice office space and the ability to work within different departments

    Cons

    Everything is project based; therefore the project managers want extensive hours of work without you billing the project

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. They do a good job securing projects in a downward economy
