    I have been working at Ankrom Moisan Architects full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -The culture within the firm is inspiring: managers and supervisors seem to understand and operate under the idea that a happy person is a happy employee. They really seem to care about you as a person before you as a worker. This makes it very easy to want to come to work and interact with your coworkers and get stuff done! -The new Portkand location, which JUST opened (early Dec 2016) is beautiful! It encourages...

    Cons

    -While it is a very inclusive firm, there are a few people who view themselves as above the rest of us, and act like it, even though they are not managers or principles. -There are only a few Design Leads, and they don't always listen to the people consulting them...which ends up wasting fee and creating bad blood between them and others in the office.

    Advice to Management

    -More real DESIGN opportunities for EVERYONE...not just established "Design Leads" -More opportunities for non-developer driven work - which would increase the reputation the firm has within the emerging design community.

    Pros

    What an amazing place. The office culture is top of the line. The people are amazing, the studio is amazing, the work is great. The principals are all team players, yet focused on high level planning. The IT groups is progressing. The BIM group is developing. There is room to grow. There is a lot of work. Time off polices are top notch. There are amazing perks. There is a lot of support from peers.

    Cons

    The roles are blurred. The Interior group does some Architecture. Project Managers do PM and PA roles. Project Architects do PA and Revit Lead roles. Intern Architects do PA and Revit Lead roles. It's semi-hierarchical. The BIM Manager lacks some vision. The pay is low. Too low for a working professional. Due to the amount of work there is a lot of overtime (it's a nice problem to have).

    Advice to Management

    The pay is below average. People stick around because the culture is amazing. It's difficult to hire new talent with compensation levels so low. We're loosing out to other firms.
