    I have been working at Cushing Terrell full-time (More than 8 years)


    With so many disciplines in-house and a long history of successful projects, the opportunity to work on different types of projects and with several project teams is great. The people are genuinely kind and supportive with good support and tech to work in any location. New roles within the project teams offer career growth for those outside the architecture and engineering disciplines. You can work on a wide variety of initiatives if you step up and speak up. You will need to push yourself; it is not a hand holding type of firm. Leadership has embraced our history while pushing the company forward in technology and design. It is an exciting time to be at Cushing Terrell.


    I don’t have any cons. Cushing Terrell is constantly growing and changing and has the typical growing pains of any large firm.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. You have a tough job.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cushing Terrell (Seattle, WA).


    Met up with Principal and two associates/Project Managers and met up to review your portfolio, your expectations, and their expectations. They discussed about their company history and culture, and what kind of projects they work on as a company, as well as what kind of projects Seattle office focused on.
