Other Employee Reviews for Gensler

  1. "Great place for aspiring architects, pretty good for interior designers, not so great for people most other areas."

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Gensler as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get a lot of exposure to different kinds of projects, with a focus on large-scale. Different departments share exciting work or projects weekly, so you get an idea of the scope or work, insights on clients, education on challenges and limitations of field, etc.

    Cons

    If you're not an architect or interior designer, the people who run the place often don't understand your needs - they are architects, and understand architecture.

    Advice to Management

    If upper management could figure out a way to make themselves more accessible, they would get a lot of valuable input from their employees. This would need to go beyond simply saying that they're accessible.

    Those opportunities are only for the same favored few, the majority never see them.

    Advice to Management

    Loose the Frat house mentality
