    Former Employee - Architectural Designer in San Jose, San Jose
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Gensler full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Exposition to global/large scaled projects, endless resources and career opportunities (maybe)

    Cons

    Life work-balance doesn’t exist here. If you are looking to work +45 hours a week, be completely overstaffed, burnout and underpaid you found gold. Too much fake marketing out there, also office culture is bad, managers always seem to be in a bad mood. No time to learn or explore on resources available.

    Advice to Management

    We are humans not robots - hire. Offer competitive salaries and deal with a +80% of your staff, we are burnout and dont belief in managers and studio directors.

      I have been working at Gensler full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Gensler is a Marketing professional's dream. We are collaborative, creative and the possibilities are non-stop. The access to top-notch photography is unreal and the support us "marketers" get from other offices is beyond anything I have ever seen. One can literally reach out if they are in need of a similar proposal or presentation and instantly colleagues will send you something for inspiration. The management really...

      Cons

      Sometimes quick deadlines get thrown at you but there is always support and help from fellow co-workers and marketing staff to get it done. High deductible health insurance is a bit of a con, but Gensler helps subside the cost.

      Advice to Management

      Keep it up. Gensler is a special company and our management has a lot to do with that. I appreciate the open-door policy and the desire to make our staff strive for excellence.
