Mundane projects, in a cold corporate culture

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good people, unfortunately they mostly work on chain stores that are prototypes, so copy and paste type of projects. I never was really excited or engaged in the projects. People in the office tended to keep to themselves and have head phones on.

Cons

Very corporate, not a fun place to work.

Supportive and Flexible

As with any firm, work is dependent on client involvement. There was a great chance to learn and participate in the AXP program and work with team members all over the country. Great place to work, I was just an unfortunate casualty of COVID-19

Pros

Flexibility and Compensation

Cons

401k company leaves a little to be desired

Good people, no management

You couldn't ask for better coworkers, but management could care less about daily activities or bringing in interesting work. I think there are more offices now than employees.

Very poor management

The new upper management are not A&E licensed professionals and are clueless... It's perhaps more like working for an accounting firm as opposed to engineering and architecture. Culture has changed significantly in a negative way throughout the last 2 years.

Pros

Decent firm name recognition and good titles

Cons

Extremely poor management

Boring projects, absolute lack of innovation

Boring projects, absolute lack of innovation but I did take a deep dive into Revit which was helpful. They were slow as the internet was taking over brick and mortar stores. Most of their international retail projects use CAD but I was lucky enough to land in the 4 person Revit studio. Glad to get out of there!

There's a reason why they're always hiring......

Management is hard to work for. Very demanding and long hours for little money. The office culture is not very warm or welcoming. Very fast paced and little feedback from management.

Cons

Management is clueless

typical design firm

Be sure you are established on more than one account. If account is for projects out of other office, that work goes away, so do you. Company has no loyalty towards employees.

Cons

Poor management by Principles of branch offices.

A typical archicture company

This is an example of a typical company that need to produce drawings in large volume. For a mid size company competing with other companies doing the same project type, the emphasize here is production.

Pros

Relatively easy projects

Cons

Doing repetitive work, OK benefit
