    I worked at Rockwell Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good community, kind co-workers, great potential to find a mentor if you vibe well with the studio leaders, interesting work with very little micro-management

    Cons

    Long hours, and at times, very difficult clients.

    I worked at Rockwell Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible working hours.. great material library resources

    Cons

    It's almost just subtle hints but very much obvious to Asian employees themselves that the creative work they've done was not getting enough credit, instead the PMs or the founder themselves who never created the actual work but talkative and out-going got it. A lot of technical and labor-intensive tasks were also assigned to them most likely.

    Advice to Management

    Award more for the real hard-working people who actually contributes

    I worked at Rockwell Group full-time

    Pros

    I had a really good experience at Rockwell. I was incredibly lucky when I first got there I was put on a team with an amazing PM and very talented lead designer. They weren't the typical egotistical types and were actually just really good at their jobs. And the projects were definitely a step above what I had been working on at past firms. As I took on new projects with different teams, personalities definitely changed...

    Cons

    There are so many personalities there, a lot of them coming and going, you just have to be prepared for anything. Also - this is the case anywhere, but I did feel cute flirty girls got ahead while the hardworking people went a little less recognized.

    Advice to Management

    HR could have better bedside manner.

    I worked at Rockwell Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are no pros at Rockwell. That is the problem.

    Cons

    The office is lead by a person who is more interested in fame than design. His involvement in projects is only to stand in front of clients and stumble his way through a presentation he spent minutes reviewing. That trickle down to a leadership team that is toxically competitive with each other. They lead teams that are underpaid, overworked and under qualified for their roles. The work in the end is collages of other...

      Pros

      You have freedom to pitch ideas, and structure your team / workflow how you feel is productive.

      Cons

      Inexperienced junior or intermediate-level architects are Project Managers due to necessity, teams are either vastly under- or overstaffed, studio leaders are gone 2-3 weeks out of the month, projects are enormous and clients are almost always multi-headed corporate monsters, client's budgets bust after Concept and Schematic phase so projects don't get built, our salaries are paid by add services, copying and knocking-off...

      Advice to Management

      Look at the projects and firms that you view to be successful, and examine why. Magnifying and multiplying scope waters down concept and creativity. The most interesting projects are not always the largest, but they're always the projects that get built.

        I have been working at Rockwell Group full-time

        Pros

        It really depends on which studio you work in because it is such a big office. I like the studio I am working in. Everyone is treated equally and given fair chances to prove your talents. Most people are very friendly, no drama, and professional.

        Cons

        Although better than the some other firms I know, we are still over worked. People constantly stay late for deadline after deadline.
