Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Gensler full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

As someone who has developed their career at Gensler, I can say without hesitation that this firm is one-of-a-kind. There is a clear focus on developing people, and growing people that is evidenced... by philanthropic initiatives, collaborative leadership opportunities, career development opportunities, global & local work, and many planned professional events. What’s more, the work that we do and the caliber of clients that we work with is unmatched. There is a studio for every practice area, each one of them working on creative projects. At Gensler, I truly feel like I’m shaping the future of cities every day.

Cons

None in my experience.

"Great Culture"Oct 21, 2019

Former Intern - Mechanical Engineering Intern

I worked at Burns & McDonnell for less than a year

Pros

As a young engineer, I've had experience at 3 companies and Burns by far has the best culture. Work force is fairly young and management was extremely willing and excited to take the time to teach... fellow team members. Company is growing fast and everyone on board is very extremely ambitious to continue to improve.

Cons

Pay was lower than competitors although many argue that the Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP) makes up for that.
