No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

I enjoyed how friendly and welcoming the office was, the quality of the work, different disciplines represented, and the work hard/play hard culture. Coworkers took time to teach me and took an interest in the quality of my internship.

Cons

As an intern, I wasn't assigned any design tasks and wasn't a full member of the design team (though I expected this).

    I have been working at Gensler full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice Facilities, happy hour and cool co-workers

    Cons

    Every DEPARTMENT: management micro-manages, they do not like any work you complete, Long hours and pretentious people. Most of the employees are fun people, but there is not a single good person in management at this company. Dress code is very strict and management don't care about how others feel.

    Advice to Management

    You are pretentious, arrogant and you only care about the outside. Not a single one of you are a good person, you should be ashamed of yourselves.

    Pros

    Innovative, entrepreneurial and collaborative work environment/mindset.
    Smart people who are leaders in their field and approach design holistically
    Great firmwide support resources that you don't get in smaller firms
    Ability to work on projects you want to work on

    Cons

    One firm approach sometimes difficult to balance with local/entreprenuerial approach

    Advice to Management

    Continue to drive innovation in not only design but management. Don't get stuck stale in management approach or practices.
