    I worked at Elkus Manfredi Architects full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some great people and very cool projects.

    Cons

    Complete lack of communication - more of a silo feel with no communication or sense of a mission at all. No idea what the top is thinking and they operate in their own bubble and do not think about the firm as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    You are currently known as a firm that is toxic to work at as well as firm that people come to just to get the name on their resume and then leave. That is your reputation in the industry.

    Pros

    Great pay in the past. Great support from HR, staffing and managers. Colleagues are like family.

    Cons

    With one of the principals passing away, there is uncertainty in the firms future. The restructuring has yielded minuscule salary increases and is starting to feel more corporate which is the opposite of what it felt like just a few months ago.
