Project Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – 30 November 2017
Salaries are low for industry standards. A firm that wants to become known for their design aesthetic needs to rethink the standard tilt-up commercial building format. Only certain individuals are selected to move up in management, standard boys club environment. If you think against the grain or challenge the Ware Malcomb way, you will be pushed aside.
Poor leadership management, not willing to think outside the box, very little designer / project manger cross over
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – 7 June 2017
Zero work-life balance--employees are staffed for 12+ hrs a day, as a matter of routine and management thinks this is reasonable and normal. Managers are very negative towards employees and never recognize successes. Company culture is pretty depressing--there's no camaraderie or joy. Pay starts out acceptable, but there are no (or very little) bonuses or raises.
healthcare plan is decent. good opportunities for interns.
Marketing Coordinator (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – 11 May 2014
Not such a great place for professionals. High turnover rate was not disclosed during job interview. Marketing Dept. has a revolving door. Upper mgmt relegated duties to jr. staff who were over their heads and unprofessional. Advice to mgmt. - get off your iPhones and social media channels and pay attention to what is going on within your department.
