I worked at Gensler full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great people, no attitudes (that;s hard to find in the architecture industry).
Lots of opportunities to travel.
Pay for overtime.

Cons

Pay structure is not good. They consider your bonuses as part of your salary.
Difficult to advance your career

Advice to Management

Do away with bonus system.
As the largest architecture firm in the world your compensation package should be above (not below) the industry average.

    I worked at Gensler full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Positive community, lots of co-curricular activities to help you meet those outside your studio, great project portfolio to learn from, mentor-driven culture, good pay and bonus program

    Cons

    Hard to get out of your studio, especially if you're not very involved with activities; can get "stuck" with one project manager for multiple projects if they want to keep you, which limits your exposure to other mentoring opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Especially with younger employees, try to focus on maximizing their exposure to different project types, management types and client situations

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

    Pros

    Great place to work especially for those new to the corporate lifestyle. The DC office is pretty "chill" and there's a lot of workshops and things to do outside of work. The pay is decent for an internship. A lot of opportunities to work collaboratively with other disciplines.

    Cons

    Meetings about meetings about meetings. Too many meetings. I just want to do my work.
    Wasn't a big fan of DC but the corporate lifestyle is something you get used to.
