    I worked at Development Design Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get to work on unique international projects, of immense scales with colleagues from around the world. It is truly rewarding

    Cons

    Sometimes you have to put on long hours to meet the ambitious deadlines. Sometimes you get asked for ridiculous changes on the very last minute

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees personal lives after 5pm

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Development Design Group (Baltimore, MD).

    Interview

    The Interview begins with a pre interview at ddg. You get to walk around the office and see Architect teams working on projects, be it mixed use, huge master planning in areas. DDG architects presentations are out of this world. Great use of graphics, 3 dementional models, renderings. The catalog we use was a work of art even down to the ecologically correct ink and paper.
