A great Office to work in and gain exposure working on some fascinating Projects
Technical Architect (Former Employee), New York, NYOctober 3, 2014
Pros: working in an international recognizable office
Cons: short breaks and long hours.
Typical day consisted of developing Technical Details on various Construction Packages.I developed my skills on AutoCAD. I managed various Architectural Packages as part of a LARGE Design Team. Most people were so focussed on their work that they did not get acquainted with fellow workers. The hardest part of the job were the long hours. The most enjoyable – more... part of the job was working on some very exciting Projects. – less

Great projects and staff, but disconnected upper management
Manager (Former Employee), New York, NYDecember 18, 2013
Pros: world-class clients, talented junior staff
Cons: resting on their laurels too much, office politics more important than skills, poor work-life balance
Opportunities to work on terrific projects with very talented people.
Unfortunately they promote homogeny in their people and appearance.
The ability to play office politics is more appreciated than actual ability to do work.

Nice place to work.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Chicago, ILApril 27, 2012
Pros: enjoyable work environment.
A typical work day would be working with the Associate Partner (the head of the department) and the whole structural department. This would be entail taking care of answering the phone for the associate partner, typing documents, editing and filing documents, type articles for publication, timekeeping on all 48 structural/civil engineers and drafting – more... out the monthly bills for review and posting.

I enjoyed working with all in this department for all were great to work for. – less
