    I worked at Aguirre Roden full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Small firm with multiple disciplines in house; Ability to move around within company for construction and design; due to tightly managing workload, most staff is always working on billable projects; have recommended others to pursue employment there; have recommended Owners to hire them for architecture, engineering, construction and program management

    Cons

    Leadership of company wanted to change and diversify, but found it difficult to do so

    Advice to Management

    Need to figure out some effective way to cut down on corporate overhead

    I worked at Aguirre Roden full-time

    Pros

    Could be a possibility of Design Build But they don't pursue it as the separate divisions don't work well together. Flexible when family issues come up. Fairly decent pay but some senior people are clock watchers.

    Cons

    Management is poor, says a lot and all their culture is one of openness but reality is they let you say what you want but don't pay it any mind and can in fact come back and hurt you. Lots of clock watching on time, say they want people to get involved in job related organizations but criticize you when you need time to do it, lot's of good buddy relationships make it tough to advance, Very stuck in their ways on processes which are very old school and wont change. They do not get much repeat work from clients, there i a reason for it.

    Advice to Management

    Pedro, the founder is awesome, sadly he has a very limited role in the business, current leaders think very highly of themselves and need to step off their pedestals and stop micromanaging, your all smart, but you don't know everything, especially about surviving in the new business environment. Get some focus in the company versus just trying to close anything comes your way. Read all your culture stuff and think about if you truly practice it, trust me, speaking for several ex-employees, you don't come close. NOTE MY CEO REVIEW IS NOT ON PEDRO, Its on the team who actually run the company
