    Pros

    Stable and never fire people

    Cons

    Static and multi-hierarchy environment which results into a lifeless atmosphere, too much office politics and lack of self-recognition of core value.

    Pros

    Stable environment, huge corporation and you'll become a cog within the process unless you step up to shine within the limited opportunities presented. Good branding and reputation to pull in big jobs.

    Cons

    - Infighting and office politics are rampant. Threading around carefully is the key. - Lack of opportunities and bosses pander to clients heavily which means associates are subjected to heavy work based on empty promises to clients - Lack of work life balance - Lack of sufficient employee benefit (150 bucks of dental per year with no optics, gym benefits etc) - Aging management system that is being outpaced by younger competitors. - Does not respond to the transformation in the digital landscape beyond the scope of construction industry and does not seek to innovate and integrate - Like any other bigger corps of construction, pretty much isolated and still rely on old school name card approaches to work process and practices. - Bosses tend to like bootlicking still and does not believe in nurturing employees beyond the scope of architecture despite proclaiming it on the surface.
