Large firm with a proven formula for building large scale projects around the globe.
Architect (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 23, 2017
- Given a lot of responsibility - Learned how to navigate CD & CA phase - Some team leaders will take the time to teach younger architects, most do not. It is difficult to advance. - Worked on the most high profile project the firm has ever built -150 N Riverside (in Chicago), completed CD & CA phase. - Was laid off with no notice after 5 1/2 years, just after my project received certificate of substantial completion.
A select few projects are interesting, local - there is the slight possibility that you will get CD & CA experience
The majority of the work is extremely formulaic, bulk of the work is in China, and advancing in the firm is very difficult.
