Gensler is committed to creating positive change within the communities we call home. A powerful sense of civic responsibility—rooted in our people’s values and strongly supported by the Gensler culture—compels us to give back to the cities and regions where we live and work. We’ve developed products with local university students for solar powered homes, designed masterplans for community neighborhoods, and rebuilt schools and homes in communities recovering from natural disasters. Our firm is part of a global network with more than 200 community partner organizations. This helps amplify our outreach activities and foster new relationships with like-minded partners and clients, like the ACE Mentor Program, the American Red Cross, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Canstruction, DIFFA, Goodwill, Habitat for Humanity, United Way, We Care, and many more.
Gensler's entrepreneurial culture attracts the industry's top talent and rewards risk-taking, exploration, and invention. We celebrate diversity, recognizing that the collective intelligence of our firm expands and grows richer when it includes the perspectives of people from different places and cultures. We constantly share knowledge, techniques, and insights to produce richer outcomes and more innovative solutions.
We are also as committed to enjoying life as we are to delivering best-in-class design. From curated art exhibits to internal design competitions to “Well-being Week,” our offices reflect our people’s diverse interests. As part of the firm’s commitment to professional development, Gensler offers reimbursement for certain professional licenses and associated renewals and exam fees. In addition, we reimburse tuition for certain eligible programs or classes. We view our professional development programs as strategic investments in our people.

I have been working at Gensler full-time (More than 3 years)
Although we are a larger firm, I never feel like a small part here. It feels as though a warm sense of welcome exudes from the top down. I genuinely feel as though the company has my best interests at heart, not only professionally but from a work-life balance perspective as well. All this contributes to my drive to succeed here at Gensler because I know they have my back!
slight improvement for growth opportunity withing firm may help
I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Gensler (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2016.
Process took about a month and a half; three rounds of interviews. They skipped the initial HR phone call, but this ended up being a mistake all around. The HR person I was working with throughout the interview process was great, but the HR contact higher up who reached out to me after all the interviews were done was surprisingly unprofessional (flippant, sent an email to the wrong email address, left someone else's name at the end of my offer letter), and the offer I received was insultingly low. If this had been my initial experience, and they had stated upfront that my desired salary was too high, I would have withdrawn my application and saved everyone a lot of time.
