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.

    Pros

    Decent insurance and other benefits.
    Good co-workers; an image of hardworking, warm hearted factory workers working for mean, egoistic, factory owners.

    Cons

    Unprofessional organization, poor management, no respect for design, draining energy, no promotions (unless if you are friend with upper management)

    Advice to Management

    Hire a professional workplace consultant to improve corporate culture.

    I have been working at NELSON full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I play a support role at Nelson so my perspective will be different from a designers view. I personally get the support and feedback needed to do my job well. The technology implementation is some of the best and I feel we have done a decent job since I've been here keeping up with everything. Friendly co-workers/teammates and decent after hour events. Good work-life balance, very flexible work-from-home policy.

    Cons

    Lack of management support with implementing technology/Revit, or other progressive technologies. Offices are silo's acting independently. Benefits/insurance is not supportive of families, but prohibitive. Culture varies per office, radically in some cases.

    Advice to Management

    Combine studios under a unified umbrella, working on the same platform/standards/technology/culture. Better benefits, we are a large company, should be better. Work on employee retention, way too much turnover, be more attentive to needs of co-workers, learning/training needs and relevance needs, exciting project desires.
