Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Great People, some of the best talent, Interesting projects, good clients, worldwide exposure, unlimited resources within the firm for learning, teaching, cross pollination of practice areas

Cons

favoritism,unequal application of promotion firmwide, easy to be associate in Lacrosse, very difficacult in Los Angeles politics, the usual, growing too fast, too many people for them to really focus on individuals, or mentor

Advice to Management

make sure employees are mentored and recognized for work-

REALLY BAD overtime policy, do you pay overtime or not because you say you always do but it is actuall pretty rare.!

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Gensler full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The option to transfer to another office, they are global.

    Cons

    If you are not a designer or an architect, you are not valued. Plain and simple. I suggested a process to improve the workflow of the studio coordinators and my email was intercepted by HR who reprimanded me for trying to "coerce the employees" and "disrupting the system".

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourselves.

    Pros

    The location of the NY office...

    Leadership is dysfunctional and treats employees like work-horses.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to explain what your expectations are and how the company works before chastising someone. People are not mind-readers!
