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

Pros

It's a job and they seem to be willing to hire anyone, even if they do not have the skills that are necessary or required by the job posting.

Cons

HQ Management is unorganized, uncaring and treats employees like numbers, not people. The local managers want to be liked by the staff more than they want to be good leaders. Empty promises abound. Little to no support for training, orientation, project staffing.

Advice to Management

Start acting like a true world class design firm rather than pretending to be one. Implement standards and treat employees with respect and maybe they would be less miserable and take the company and the managers more seriously.

    "A lot of opportunity and learning experiences but also a very bipolar overall organization."

    I have been working at NELSON full-time

    Pros

    Every office is different, but the leadership in our local office is tremendous. The organization is large enough so that there are some nice systematic features. Due to local leadership the work/life balance is very good and the overall experience is quite good.

    Cons

    NELSON is like a sports team that is always rebuilding. They constantly shift direction and drift toward the newest big idea without having any real focused, meaningful, and specific core values. It's a lot of 'Corporate-speak' without much in the way of actual content and very little backing up words with actions.

    Advice to Management

    Be real . . . be human. Don't treat people like numbers . . . treat them like individuals and understand that a company is the sum of it's parts. Understand that leadership isn't just a title but that it's actually doing what you say you will, ironically a NELSON core value that is rarely followed within the actual organization.

    Pros

    Helpful team, respect for employees and good work ethics. There is flow of work within various offices which helps in employee communication and networking.

    Cons

    Promotions and reviews are very laid back, there is a lack in employee recognition and compensation effort, the work is standard and don't get much opportunity to be creative at times.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation and salaries should be more competitive, more effort to expand business in different sectors such as retail and hospitality.
