    Pros

    Incredible networking opportunities, exposure to aspects of design that school won't reach you. Helpful mentoring and the office culture doesn't feel corporate, despite the NYC office holding 900+ employees. Detailed experience on a very unique and specific project type. There is a diverse range of employment types available at Gensler and architecture is not the only discipline you will learn.

    Cons

    There is often a lack of project diversity; I worked on the same project, doing just about the same task, the entirety of my internship. I became well versed in that particular subfield of the industry, but was still limiting in a way. I also noticed that many of the times I worked late in the office was due to poor communication between project teams and consultants. Keeping everyone on the same page is vital, and when it happens at Gensler, the results are spectacular. Additionally, Project design needs to be riskier, more fresh and willing to produce groundbresking masterpieces. The Sustainability, LEED certifications, are already deeply ingrained in Gensler. The next step is to go out on a limb, take some projects that normally would be overlooked, and explore thr FULL capabilities of what a powerhouse firm like Gensler can really do.
