It's one of the more social architecture firms I have worked at, with annual softball leagues and a holiday party.
Support from management
The firm's leadership is mostly reactionary in nature. Even for a firm that is very top heavy, the organization at the top spreads people too thin for them to have time to be proactive.
Most of the production teams work well together, but it is difficult for them to be productive when the project leaders give in to the client's every demand, no matter how unrealistic the change is.
Freedom to work independently
The workload is not distributed fairly. If you're on a favored team, you get good projects. Those same teams also get burned out by over-production when multiple large projects are thrown their way, with no help given to absorb the added workload.
Communication could definitely be improved. Considering the office layout is entirely open, too much of the trivial information gets around and not enough of the substantial information gets out to everyone.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Seniors are treated fine. If anything, it is the younger, millennials that are having trouble with the environment.
They have implemented a new mentorship program to help develop talent. I hope it works as it should.
Overall compensation for your work
Compensation is pretty good, but the benefits leave much to be desired.
The firm has a rather "old school" mentality about face time at the office, and an inherent level of guilt about any time taken out of the office. People are always pressured to stay connected, which eats away at personal time.
The firm does pull in some impressive projects, but they leave a lot of potential to be desired because they don't challenge the clients to push the envelope.
Inclusive / Diverse
With persistence, new ideas can emerge. You just need to be able to validate them quantifiably.
