    Pros

    Open book management and team oriented work creates a place where creativity is high. There are many generations that work there and mentorship is high.

    Cons

    The Great Recession has affected the mood of the office. They also just moved to San Jose from the Peninsula after 36 years which has created hardship on many employees.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are your number one asset and the most influential element to profitability. Understand each one's passons, skills, and aspirations, then match those with company goals.

    Pros

    They have a very collaborative work environment that supports individual goals and skills. You learn a lot being exposed to architecture, engineering, and planning at the same time. Management treats everyone with same level of respect and a friendly open office environment.

    Cons

    They are a very specialized firm that is focused on parking. Everything they do involves parking which some people may not like.

    Advice to Management

    Make expectations from employees clear. Keep up with training sessions. Provide more periodic feedback on expectations and performance aside from yearly reviews.
