    I worked at AKT II (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked in company for a 3-month internship. Company's culture is very involving. People are easy to work with and friendly and helpful. Besides, there are lots of opportunities for skill developing. Last, there are always lots of interesting projects going on with different scales and types, so you have a chance to learn different things.

    Cons

    Due to Brexit, it is a little bit hard to get a working visa for international employee right now since the company is only London based.

    I have been working at AKT II full-time

    Pros

    Very good mix of top-spec projects and social activities. Opportunities to work with many famous architects. Lots of company-funded sports and events. Relatively flat hierarchy.

    Cons

    Operating from their single London office (which has many advantages), AKT currently can't offer careers abroad like the big global players do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!
