I have been working at Guzzardo Partnership full-time (Less than a year)
An all around great landscape architecture company with very exciting high-end projects . Very nice, helpful principles and co-workers. Awesome company spirit. Professional experience is gained quickly.
Not too many cons here! Kind of a difficult commute to the city (SF) for those living in the suburbs.
Very good pay for my level of experience compared to peers with same experience.
All work is built work and you will get lots of exposure to construction and public process.
Management is a little behind in technology and marketing and is relying of old professional relationships to get new work.
Work is very budget driven and there are few opportunities for extravagance in projects.
Advice to Management
Update the website.
Update graphics standards to more current computer graphics.
-Though it may take time and some money for new software and training the current staff, it will pay for itself and land projects that you wouldn't otherwise.
-Make a larger effort (aka more current graphics and presentations) to actually compete in professional competitions otherwise don't make any attempt. It just looks poorly on the company, and presents TGP as an outdated "little guy".
-Market the office history and Tony Guzzardo's older projects, relationship with Sasaki associates and with Hideo Sasaki...one of the "big guys".
