I was constantly complimented on the level of my expertise using autocad architecture.
Support from management
Principal was rather pompous and narcissistic.
We all seemed to get along great!
There were only 3 men, including myself in the office.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Generally all the same age in the office, but respectful.
Company wasn't big enough to really offer much in terms of development or training.
Overall compensation for your work
I felt extremely underpaid for the amount of experience I have in the field of autocad 3D design.
Office / Work Environment
Not an ergonomically acceptable working situation. Wrong kinds of desks and had to "just deal with it" broken chair the entire time I was there.
They were moving more toward LEED type designing.
Fair balance and pretty laid back atmosphere in the office.
It seemed as if the company wanted to appear to be a much larger operation than they actually are.
From the first day I began working there I was constantly complimented on my work. There were some obvious things that one would expect just starting at any new job, but nothing out of the ordinary I thought. However, I was also told about a previous employee that had chosen to leave a few months before I was hired. I was told that if they could get her to come back that they would, in a heartbeat. Then, oddly enough, right at the end of my 90 day "probationary" period when I was promised an additional amount of money this ex-employee happened to show back up.
I was never told I was doing anything wrong as far as my level of design experience. I came in on a Friday and the principal was out somewhere and had his other designer let me know that I was no longer needed. No warning whatsoever, was never given any type of reason either.
I got to work on several, very interesting, designs while working there. Upscale residential mostly.
Inclusive / Diverse
There were only 3 of us while I was there, and then an intern was added as a part time position for a little while.
Suggestions for improvement
- Really do not care.
What I like about the company
What I dislike about the company
He didn't even have the nerve to let me go personally. Pretty shady and unprofessional in my opinion. I have no respect for that type of individual.
