Beautiful, high design firm with many office culture problems
Designer (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – March 13, 2017
Beautiful office space and they have great initiatives for health and wellness and community involvement, however the workplace culture leaves much to be desired: _Management definitely has their favorites and will work to help with their advancement, while others are left behind (even if they are more or equally qualified). _Career path for development is unclear _High turnover rate _Employees (including management) will talk behind each other's back and throw each other under the bus when it suites their needs

i was able to advance my skills in client relations and learned from junior staff members while being able to advance their knowledge; the hardest part of the job is meeting deadlines at times; most enjoyable part is client interface from a variety of cultures
great personal rewards and empowerment are basic to the firm
Global firm that understands it's about the people
Architct (Current Employee) – New York, NY – December 6, 2016
I've been at the firm for a few years now, and have had the chance to work on many different projects. They let me explore new interests, and I've even collaborated with other offices around the world on some assignments. The projects are challenging, and the people are really smart.
My coworkers have very different backgrounds, which makes it more interesting. They want to hear new approaches to design. Feedback is fair and constructive.
The economy has changed a lot over the years, but I feel good about the firm's stability and focus on leadership. They are helping me to grow in my career.
