Good company and place to work because of supervisors and management staff.
Healthcare & Interior Design (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAMarch 20, 2013
A typical day would be focused on doing your part as much as possible for the project team within the framework of tasks assigned to do your job for the project. You arrive to work where they provide coffee and breakfast sometimes, then it's pretty much go to your work station and get to work until lunch time, then back to work until you've finished – more... your tasks for the day. While at your workstation, there is a lot of communication with team members in order to do the work that's assigned to you and other team members. Sort of typical when you work in that type of architectural office work environment.

What I learned the most was the architectural presentation process to provide information specific to the agencies that govern healthcare building design and facilities. Primarily the graphic presentation techniques and procedures used by the office to show information related to the design meet the guideline requirements by these agencies for this building type.

Most of my co-workers and project team members did provide a good work environment that made the work to complete assigned tasks manageable. However, the office did have that individual co-worker, that seemed to try and micro manage tasks assigned to others that seem to add extra unnecessary time to complete the work. The time spent from having to explain every decision made towards the completing the design task that ultimately shared the same outcome could have been better used to complete other assignments.

The hardest part of the job was dealing with the individual who would micro-manage and add unnecessary time to complete the assigned work. Even harder was having to leave the company from a certain avoidable misunderstanding, related to personal family issues that made it difficult to separate life-work situation. If the personal issues at the time wasn't as difficult to handle, dealing the micro-managing co-worker might not have been such a problem.

Most enjoyable part of the job were the office activities set up by the management. It provided workers the opportunity to socialize and communicate in a very casual atmosphere allowing them to get to know each other, which would've been impossible without this arrangement. Compared to other places worked in the past, the office management was the best I've ever experienced. – less
