    Pros

    Interesting projects
    You'll get really good at CAD and become a human robot

    Cons

    70-80 hour work weeks - Will ruin your body, mind & soul
    Nobody follows company CAD standards. Files are totally FUBAR - frustrating waste of time
    Principals were upstairs. Grunts downstairs. They referred to the 1st floor as "the morgue".
    Mind F*(#ing cult brainwashing techniques employed by principals and associates.

    Advice to Management

    It would help if you were actually in the office so that you knew who was coming into work early, staying late and doing all of the work and who was surfing facebook and chatting all day. You let go of the wrong people. If you were in the office you would have known that.

    The amount of catty gossip in the office was embarrassing. PMs and Associates talking about principals and everybody sharing personal information about each other. I didn't want to hear it. I was there for one thing; to work. There were supposedly a lot of Harvard grads there but it felt more like a kindergarten full of valley girls.
