    I worked at Lord Aeck & Sargent Architects as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They have well-built summer internship program. Interns collaborated to complete a project from initial concept design to final presentation. Each intern has a mentor to guide you. The office environment is very interactive and friendly

    Cons

    Hope to stay longer and learn more

    I worked at Lord Aeck & Sargent Architects full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They have good benefits - use to be a family oriented company before when I was there - loved to work with the principals because they cared about you and wanted to know your growth in the company

    Cons

    When review time comes they do not give you a good raise, make their employees work - but never a pat on the back - lot of people have left for that reason. Cannot keep an employee very long - because management does not even know what the employees are doing and there is no thank you

    Advice to Management

    Do not just go hire a new intern you train him with all the money and then he leaves to make more money somewhere else with another company - you have invested in him and the money is wasted in the training

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers (many who have worked there for years), flexible hours, great benefits and decent pay. The office is awesome too.

    Cons

    Communication across the firm and between departments isn't always great. Recent change in management but sometimes change can be good. Only time will tell!

    Pros

    The quality of work is fairly high, they treat employees well, they pay better then average, people here are generally very nice.

    Cons

    They are adjusting to growth, There is a larger more corporate feel due to it's current size. Leadership is in transition, future questions remain open as principals retire or adjust their current roles.

    Advice to Management

    The long term leadership transition has created some doubt within the firm regarding our future strengths. Only time will tell, but a clear plan is still elusive.

    I have been working at Lord Aeck & Sargent Architects part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    enjoyed a variety of project types, provided with opportunities to grow,

    Cons

    need to hire additional people to support; the level of office stress has risen due to an influx of projects and not enough staff to manage or do the work

    Advice to Management

    provide better project management support and development instead of sink or swim.

    Great office culture, lots of fun, strong emphasis on quality design and doing the right thing.

    Good architects do not always make good businesspeople.

    Say thanks once in a while. Tell people they're doing well and you appreciate them.

    Pros

    There were voluntary sociable events once in a while that helped to socialize among employees.

    Cons

    It was a big firm, where you would do the same thing for all projects. Not giving room to expand one's capability of other aspects of the work.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, my experience in the firm was great. Just wanted room for expansions on what I can do on projects.
