I have been working at Gensler full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

First and foremost- GREAT CLIENTS! Very entrepreneurial in professional development and career pathing, high design - business savvy, talented individuals around every corner, awesome culture and people, expectations are high but the sky is the limit to accomplish anything you want, supportive management, thought leaders, fun and inspiring.

Cons

Everybody works very hard (often a lot of OT) and there is pressure to do the same...so your work-life balance is difficult to manage at times. Total compensation is distributed among 4 vehicles, so base salary is only in the middle of the pack with other similar size firms...a little harder to get used to for early career professionals.

Advice to Management

More autonomous style management practices should be used. Consider better ways of recognizing licensure (ie, a raise, even small, would be nice)!

    Pros

    You are exposed to great desing. If you are lucky you are assigned to work in several studio and have exposition to a varied of projects and get to meet a varied of professionais.

    Cons

    If you stuck to be labled as a "production worker" not much chance to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to hear veryone not only the same people all the time. Management needs to see other poitns of view, not only the three or four opinions.

    I worked at Gensler full-time

    Pros

    Pleasing aesthetic offices, although getting crowded
    Creative and talented young professional staff
    Part of larger Gensler Brand which is world renowned and does amazing projects Worldwide

    Cons

    Current management team is highly dysfunctional and affects all levels of staff
    Questionable hiring and termination practices, high turnover
    Narrow career trajectory based upon favoritism

    Advice to Management

    Upper management must diversify power and make employees feel more valued. Boinus and compensation is below industry standards and there are a few powerplayers there creating a toxic environment for the entire office.
