I have been working at HOK full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Management gives a lot of responsibility to younger staff.
There is a lot of opportunity to move up in this office and in the company.
Firm genuinely seems to care about your career path and growth.

Cons

Over worked, pulled in too many directions at once.
Weak culture, not a "design" office feel.

Advice to Management

Work on staffing better, some projects are heavily staffed and others have almost none.

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

    Pros

    Junior staff all got along well. Regular happy hours and plenty of opportunity to interact with senior staff. When work slowed down they handled laying people off pretty well. Was allowed to keep health benefits for 3 months after termination. When I started as an intern in with this company in another city I was able to transfer to the San Francisco office when I graduated.

    Cons

    Limited room for advancement. When work did get slow they had to downsize considerably. Pay was very low by local standards.

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

    Pros

    Good pay, fairly transparent, flexible work schedule, decent benefits, great staff, good resources (software and hardware), very good support staff, honest management.

    Cons

    A recent struggle to win new work, although that will change soon. Somewhat top heavy in terms of management, bureaucracy can get in the way of progress at times, but it has gotten better. Users get shifted acround quite a bit

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to keep enough production staff on hand so that they don't get burned out. Make project managers b more efficient.
