    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!

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at AKT II full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Chance to work in amazing projects with some of the top architects.
    If you work hard and are good in what you do you will have very good opportunities, both in terms of projects and career progression.

    Cons

    Being a relatively small company you do not have some access to some opportunities other big companies offer, such as mobility, work abroad, management focus roles, etc...

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing it right!

    Pros

    Very sociable and international. Nice people

    Very negative during the recession. Too much pressure and shouting. I think things are restored now.

    Advice to Management

    Not bad
