    I have been working at CannonDesign (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.
