    Pros

    They have a very collaborative work environment that supports individual goals and skills. You learn a lot being exposed to architecture, engineering, and planning at the same time. Management treats everyone with same level of respect and a friendly open office environment.

    Cons

    They are a very specialized firm that is focused on parking. Everything they do involves parking which some people may not like.

    Advice to Management

    Make expectations from employees clear. Keep up with training sessions. Provide more periodic feedback on expectations and performance aside from yearly reviews.

    Pros

    good group of people to work with. friendly staff. management tries to allow for flexible schedules. open communication between management and staff.

    work flow is pretty up and down. at project deadlines workload is very heavy. principals are out of the office alot.

    remember to check in with staff more regularly. don't forget to do quarterly (at least) check-ins with employees based on their individual goals

    I have been working at Watry Design full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    straight forward hands down architecture work, strong connection with structural engineers and other team buddies such as builders and subcontractors. the company values every career opportunities for the employees . work and life boundary set clear, very good benefits .. lots of snacks in the kitchen ..never run low in stock~~

    Cons

    the company is pioneering the flagship in innovating parking structure which is good, and specialized in one thing has lots of opportunities ,but you need to be fully prepared to be focused only on one building type: parking . it depends on what you are looking for really
