    I have been working at Gensler full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Large knowledge and expertise base for almost all practice areas, as the firm is so large. Can reach out to network of 5000 colleagues all across the globe.

    Cons

    The day to day projects can be sometimes mundane. Or, you get the opportunity to try inventive ideas that get killed by lack of client vision or inability to fully realise design idea due to overcompromised details at the construction level. Client base is often conservative and unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Need to contribute to supporting brave design ideas without interfering with its development. Excessive overtime and inefficiency with inter team communication and understanding an ongoing issue. Need to target better clients to raise the level of work.

      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.
