    I have been working at Gensler full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Can develop many different types of expertise within the same company. Great to interact with people from around the world in different offices.

    Cons

    Have to track all of your time to specific projects (in 30 min increments). Virtually no allowance for exploring research or other non project work. Very political.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on productivity percentage and start allowing and inspiring people to innovate.

      I have been working at Gensler full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Projects are awesome and people talented, def a place to work to learn and understand a different vision, strategy and simply perspective on design.

      Cons

      Hours are long, life balance difficult, and the turn over ends up being very high.
