    I have been working at Davis Carter Scott part-time

    Pros

    They are a very flexible and understanding group of people to help work with a schedule of someone who goes to school full time and works part time. Everyone who works there are very nice people.

    Cons

    The overall office culture doesn't seem to care about architecture design and theory. They're more focused with making a clean revit model. Graphic standards are very low compared to other firms.

    Advice to Management

    I would try to hire younger professionals to jump start innovative designs and graphic standards for renderings and marketing packages.

    Pros

    DCS offers some unique benefits that you won't find at other companies. There is a high emphasis on up to date technology and training. DCS has such a diverse staff I am continuously learning more about people and places around the world.

    Cons

    Being located in Tysons Corner can be trying at times with traffic.

    Advice to Management

    Diversification in leaders, like with design, needs to be ever evolving. Maximize your staff skills and DCS will continue to be an industry leader for years to come. I would like to see a little more leadership roles being taken on from middle management.

    I have been working at Davis Carter Scott

    Pros

    DCS allows for growth in many directions. You can really soar at DCS if you are willing to look at yourself, determine your strengths and ask for management's help in placing you in a position that utilizes those strengths.

    Cons

    DCS is relatively small, so it is sometimes run like a family business. This can be frustrating to those who need more corporate structure, but that also helps the people who are willing to ask for help.

    Advice to Management

    DCS has done a great job through the many years of business. My only suggestion would be to continue looking towards the future.
