    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at SmithGroup full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Opportunity for growth. In office seminars. Decent work environment. Most folks I've met are very nice and personable and genuinely interested in doing good work. Opportunity to work in and learn a number of constructions types. There are ground up and TI projects. There are OSHPD projects as well is you want to learn more about those. Full IT support within the office. There are a lot of smart people here...

    Cons

    There is some politicking within the office, which is unfortunate. There are a lot of seminars available to staff, but its difficult to participate with workloads and short staffing. It's a large office and not all the PMs have similar workflows or skill sets.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at SmithGroup

    Pros

    Everyone else in town is looking for SmithGroup caliber employees. Cutting edge design philosophy without being on the bleeding edge After 12 years, an SG culture has emerged from the KCF and Tobey/Davis merger A new office that is not afraid to practice what it preaches along with learning from it's failures. The DC is well diversified with successful work in multiple sectors

    Cons

    The walls need to come down between studios. Staff should be allowed to move freely between studios without fear of burning bridges. Studios should share more and compete less.
