    I worked at Gensler full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Endless awards each year working with some of the best projects and best clients Reputation as Global Leaders in design. Excellent office work environment. Almost 50 Gensler offices world-wide.

    Cons

    Long hours and lower than average salaries for this industry. Highly competitive internally amongst the teams and most will do anything to get better bonus pay.

    Advice to Management

    Many employees get burned out quickly and easily. Can be very stressful as Sr Leader role. Too many inner politics/drama
