I worked at Magnusson Klemencic Associates (Less than a year)
You have the opportunity to work on big interesting projects at MKA. In addition, the way the technical and market specialties are set-up provides for a very good technical support within the office and project managers that understand there clients.
Long hours are encouraged and a strong commitment to deadlines can sometime hurt the drawings more than it helps the overall project timeline.
Advice to Management
Encourage the employees to work less and emphasis the sharing of knowledge to increase the companies overall efficiency.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Magnusson Klemencic Associates (Seattle, WA).
Very laid back and relaxed... there were no technical aspects to this interview whatsoever, as MKA is fairly confident they can rely on your stellar academic background (they only hire from a select number of accredited programs) and trust that they can teach you everything else. The main point of the interview is really to get to know you and make sure you're a good fit for the office culture.
Minimal negotiation, they hire right out of college/grad school so most people are just happy to be landing a great job.
