      Better than most, still not great

      Pros

      Some teams seem to bond well and it's unlikely you'll work on weekends. Health care was good! Pay is pretty good for the industry.

      Cons

      The hours are still hellish/unpredictable and how much you like it very much depends on which team you get put on. Mine was fine but I definitely didn't feel like anyone actually cared about each other. Feels like you're just a very expensive robot. But hey, I guess that's the architectural profession as a whole when you're starting out.

      Pros

      If you want to work on large scale Chinese projects, this place may be it.

      Cons

      Condescending and lots of light headed people. HRs are pretty unorganized and there are too many of them for no reason. Lots of politics and high turnovers. Principals are occupied on how to overuse the employers like slaves. Therefore, horrible work and life balance.
