Pros

LRK has a good reputation for quality work and high standards as far as design policies are concerned

Cons

Productivity reports that tell everyone in the entire office about how much profitable time each employee is responsible for and wheather or not they are meeting expectations.

Praise in non-existant as is yearly reviews. Even if an empolyee's doing poorly they are not told until the very end when being let go or fired is the only option.

Advice to Management

Talk to your employees. Let them know when they are doing go and when they are messing up.

    Pros

    An opportunity to work on interesting and challenging projects.

    Cons

    Weird company culture. Not much different than many other firms in this profession in the US, but definitely something I disliked a lot. Extremely high stress, coworkers scared witless, long and exhausting hours.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with more respect. Do not force people to become a cloned version of yourself. Allow them to be who they are and to do work their way. Build real teams. Having one person acting as a draftsmen, project architect, project manager, admin assistant is a little bit too much to expect and in the end – it’s not working well.


  2. "Industry leader"

    Pros

    LRK is an industry leader in the field of planning and architecture. The senior management is strong and the opportunities for talented designers are good.

    Cons

    The hours can be long and the travel can be taxing to meet expectations. Some managers find it difficult to promote those individuals who are deserving.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in the integration of the architecture and planning studios so that staff can benefit from this multi-disciplinary practice. The firm could benefit from more Landscape Architects.
