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

Pros

Decent compension. Need to set your own roles from day one. The more you give this company the more they will take from you.

Cons

The Atlanta Office is way over managed. The senior managment team has very little trust in their staff and treats all employees like children. This in a very depressing place to work. Very hard to advance.

Advice to Management

Stop over managing the staff. This does not "Empower" anyone.

    I have been working at Gensler full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Positive, encouraging culture; many education opportunities; professional staff; great benefits. It's a fabulous place for young professionals to learn the business.

    Cons

    Corporate culture isn't suited for everyone, you have to choose between technical and design tracts... And technical staff is not highly valued.

    I have been working at Gensler full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very collaborative, well-respected firm. Great company culture that encourages entrepreneurship, collegiality and community involvement. Bonus program and PS/ESOP programs can be very rewarding to those who stay with the firm for a long time.

    Cons

    Big company, so sometimes making changes to processes/policies can take time. The Regional structure helps to offset this somewhat given the fact that the regions still have quite a bit of independence and latitude to explore new practices/methodologies.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the growth of the company turn it into a bureaucracy.
