Mission: Together, we create design solutions to the greatest challenges facing our clients and society.
I have been working at CannonDesign (More than 3 years)
It's clear company leadership is committed to making CannonDesign a great place to work. Since our new CEO took the helm last year, a number of new programs have launched solely focused on employee engagement (summer hours, remote working, bonus programs, etc.). Our previous CEO felt very disconnected from employees. Brad is the opposite - he's engaged, passionate and genuine in his belief that design can change the world.
You also can't beat the industry recognition CannonDesign has amassed. Fast Company named our firm one of the 10 most innovative design firms in the world in 2017. And it's deserved. I've worked at a number of architecture firms over the years, and CannonDesign's talent can't be matched.
It's more of an industry challenge, but I'd like to see CannonDesign make some bold moves related to its commitment to diversity. We're making progress, but we could be doing more.
Advice to Management
Keep on keeping on! You guys are making great progress in making CannonDesign an great place to work.
I applied online. I interviewed at CannonDesign (Chicago, IL) in August 2017.
Received Email to schedule Phone Interview. HR was really responsive and friendly. Asked several questions about why I was interested in the firm as well as skills I had. After the phone interview, I was asked to visit the office and met three Workers. There I was asked to present my portfolio as well as talk about how I would contribute to the office.
