I have been working at Array Architects full-time (More than 3 years)
I feel compelled to write a review as response to the anonymous post made on August 25th as my experience and perception of Array has been startlingly different.
I joined Array as an accountant over 3 years ago. In that brief time, I have taken on significant responsibility and learned a new industry (I came from Public Accounting and Architecture was very foreign). I have been challenged and coached by the most respected leaders in their field and I have been given boundless opportunity to grow into a confident and respected professional in my field. This would not have been possible without the continuous efforts of Array leadership. With their guidance and unwavering support, I now lead the Business Office as the Director of Finance.
I think a cornerstone of Array culture is Continuous Improvement. I admire the tireless efforts of teammates who are willing to challenge existing processes, work collaboratively to develop better processes, and then implement those processes so that Array continues to be one of the best in the industry. A hallmark of the continuous improvement process is that it is continuous. We never stop improving. I wouldn’t want to work for a firm where we didn’t all roll up our sleeves and do the heavy lifting necessary to excel. Now, a possible outcome of attempting change is that you fail and that you feel uncomfortable stumbling through those new ideas. But failure is just part of the process of learning and growing. It is an opportunity that I now embrace because it teaches me how to be a better leader-both in my personal life and my professional life.
I admire and respect my peers and the leadership that I work with at Array. And, equally as important, I feel respected by them. In three years, I have never asked a question (and honestly, I pepper people with questions non-stop) and didn’t receive a helpful response. I have never asked for help and was turned away.
To sum this all up, I am very happy at Array and I believe that I am still evolving into the leader that I aspire to be. I think the Array team is constantly striving to improve not only work processes but company culture.
To the anonymous employee who feels marginalized, I would challenge you to step out from the shadows of internet anonymity and use the tools that you have been given at Array to affect change within the firm. You have every opportunity to do so.
Array has a fast paced environment which may be seen as a con for some-but it is very rewarding and very worth-while.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Array Architects (New York, NY) in December 2013.
Not too long. It was a quick and easy process. Had a phone interview first and then a in person interview in the New York office. The people who interviewed me were nice and supportive of the work I had done before.
