I have been working at Sasaki full-time (More than 3 years)
- Good atmosphere between the professional staff but not the same with the upper echelon.
- Good opportunities if you are able to befriend the principal in charge.
- Good benefits.
- Great Landscape and Urban design work, not so much Architecture.
- Lack of transparency affects the moral of the employees.
- No clear way to move on the ladder as favoritism plays a major role.
- No clear strategies or design quality in projects; each principal has their own style; which is mostly terrible antiquated Architecture.
- Only 2 principals care about the Architectural design and innovation, the rest only care about their bonuses or commissions.
- Major Layoffs of lower staff members, but not change at the top.
- Limited to one project type and poor design portfolio is affecting the growth of the firm. As they cannot compete with other firms due to Sasaki's mediocre principals.
- Great talented co-workers left during the two recent layoffs.
Advice to Management
Start shaking up at the top and layoff the mediocre principals that are just affecting the growth of the firm.
- Keep design talent in order to improve the aesthetics + functions of your projects.
- Be more transparent.

The corporate structure provides some level of organization, which many design firms lack. Access to interesting project work, if you get on the right teams and in with the right Principals.
I expected a more collaborative environment coming to a multidisciplinary firm, but the departments feel surprisingly separate, and even antagonistic at times.
