Pros
Good Work Culture

Corporate has all the control and makes it not a very fun place to work

Company that buys other companies
Designer (Former Employee) –  Webster, TXDecember 16, 2015
IBI is a Toronto Canada based operation, they buy other Architecture companies and strip them down to bare bones personnel to turn a profit. Designs are not reviewed well by Senior staff and subordinate staff takes blame for mistakes. Training and continuing of Architectural exam training is not even a consideration at this firm. 44-50 hour weeks are typical with pay that is not compensative of the commitment.
Pros
Nice office
Cons
Long Hours, poor compensation, lack of advancement

Not great
Engineer (Current Employee) –  USFebruary 17, 2015
Overworked, underpaid. No visibility to management, and tech leads are unwilling to listen to new ideas. Interesting projects are the one positive aspect.
