    I worked at DP Architects full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    exposure to good projects good place to learn and to strat your career

    Cons

    -it is difficult to move up because they tend to give a specific task to employees -poor work-life balance -lack of flexibility -old-style corporation very hierarchical -in big projects there are too many directors that don't know the project and talk because of their title -poor culture. there is a lot of gossip and drama. -Tend to exploit hard work -even though it's a "global firm" it's very local and it is difficult to integrate.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at DP Architects full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good office location, many social activities, big company, and big projects. It is good for fresh graduates to gain experience, and put its name on their CV.

    Cons

    Official working hours is 8.5 hours, but many of the staffs, from junior members to senior members, work overtime/overnight frequently due to unproductive management, lack of manpower as well as last minutes changes from the top management level. No work-life balance in this intense work place, and it affects my family life. Their bonus and annual leave is below average among the same industry.
