    I have been working at Steven Holl Architect P C full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The job is perfect for a certain type of person. It really takes dedication. But if you are that type of person it's great. I've been there for years and love it still. Very intelligent coworkers. Great theoretically driven projects and Steven is one of my favorite people. Great office and the shop is top notch.

    Cons

    It has its definite highs and lows. Pay not so good starting out. Can be long hours at times, but not as many as some other top notch firms. You really have to pay your dues .

    I worked at Steven Holl Architect P C for less than a year

    Pros

    - Great projects - firm is not afraid to pursuit challenging assignments

    Cons

    - Terrible pay and work culture. People are squeezed to their limit to produce work, without appropriate compensation. - People join the firm for its reputation - but the lack of compensation, good working culture, and actually learning about architecture, make it unworthwhile.
