    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.
