I worked at Phillips Partnership full-time (More than 10 years)
I worked for Phillips Partnership straight out of school for 11 years and loved every minute of it. It is a great work environment and everyone is fun to work with. It's laid back enough to make it a relaxing atmosphere, but still be able get your work done. I worked in the retail studio my entire time there, but did help out for the hospitality and multi-family/mixed-use studios as well. Rob French is the best Vice President you will ever work for hands down and a great person. He has a great work philosophy and will help you move up in the company if you are willing to put in the work and love what you do. I would highly recommend anyone to work here and would not working in any other architecture firm.
Traffic can be iffy during the holidays.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Phillips Partnership.
The interview process was very pleasant actually. The studio head sat with me initially and then two project managers stepped in at different times to talk with me as well. By no means as intimidating as other interview I went on, which I think says a lot about Phillips as a firm. Our studio head always walked me around the office.
