High profile projects. Large firm (about 1000) with emphasis on small, rigorous design groups. Access to the most advanced fabrication, material and technological resources.

Long arduous hours nearing deadlines with no overtime. A few weeks reaching 80+ hours.

Great management of talent, providing several options for employment and location of employment.

    I have been working at Foster + Partners full-time

    Pros

    At the time decent opportunity as a growing satellite office. Much more responsibility than colleagues in the main London office. Small office culture, big office clout.

    Cons

    NY management at the time was not great, but heard it has gotten better in recent years. The office is not completely independent. Still must answer to London. Long hours, but as expected in the industry.

    I have been working at Foster + Partners (More than a year)

    Pros

    Exciting project!
    The best benefit of the company is 25 days paid vacation since it is a British firm.
    Surrounded by very talented colleagues.

    Cons

    Maybe because this is a site office, the office operates with lots of Hierarchies. Workload can sometimes be unbearing, meaning countless hours without getting paid.
