Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

I have been working at Gensler full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Fast paced atmosphere with wonderful people who are eager to help teach younger staff. The benefits are great and you have access to a variety of great resources (technology, knowledge, materials, etc). Since the firm does work in every practice area imaginable, you also have the opportunity to work on a variety of project types and sizes.

Cons

It is a large firm with some very large offices which can be a bit overwhelming at times.

Advice to Management

Keeping the studios on the smaller side helps with the culture and not making it seem like you are working at a 5000 person firm.
