I very much like working here. Yes, there are strong personalities, as there would be anywhere where people work with ideas and try to solve complex problems, but the team at 1100 is comprised of thoughtful, responsible people. There is a great collaborative atmosphere, and appreciation for shared knowledge. Projects are uniformly interesting and are executed at a very high level of quality, with a strong focus on good and effective design. There are opportunities for employees at all levels to contribute their ideas and be heard.
There is pretty high turnover at the junior level, especially for a firm that offers good benefits and a positive office culture.
I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at 1100 Architect (New York, NY).
1st with one associate architect, quick, personal and welcoming
2nd with two principal architects, had to repeat the same thing but get questioned a lot
Mainly talked about my resume, skills and experiences
They are not into my school work portfolio much
They want to see real professional work
