Pros

Gensler pays overtime which is not common for architecture firms. I am respected and treated well by my leadership and management.

Cons

Working at a larger firm is harder to get noticed and get promoted. Someone will always complain about lower salaries/raises/bonuses during this economic climate.

Advice to Management

Invest more in the people that work for Gensler (in the way of industry conferences and events) so that they may feel valued and inspired.

    Pros

    Bonuses. Gensler's commitment to continued education by providing lunch ceu's, etc. Their help in encouraging and supporting professional licensing. Client does seem to come first.

    Cons

    I will have to agree with some of the above posts in regards to the fact that promotions are often made on the basis of how well one cultivates relationships with the managers rather than on the basis of skills and knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Review some of the people that have been working there for a while. Just because they've been there for a long time doesn't mean that they should continue to work there. Client does seem to come first and in turn some of the workers are over used and are given very little time for a lot of work.

    Pros

    bonuses.....colleagues are friendly.....office design is favorable to employees. ... its part of "Gensler" firmwide.

    Cons

    archaic work philosophy.....clear hierarchy of management and salary based on degrees and licensure, not on skills and progressive attitudes. People are a number and not seen for their talent or what they bring to the table. Long hours and little appreciation for dedication to the company and project.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employees beyond their resume. See what skills and talents they bring to the table and appreciate the value they add to Gensler. Be more progressive in your attitudes and work ethic.
