    I have been working at Magnusson Klemencic Associates full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The biggest pro at MKA are the amazing projects we get to work on. MKA works almost exclusively on premiere and high-profile buildings and regardless of what role you end up playing in it you will always be able to look up at an iconic building in the skyline and say "yeah, I helped make that happen!"

    Another benefit are the relatively flexible hours. You can get to work late or you can leave early (probably not both, but MKA keeps you busy enough where chances are that isn't happening anyway) but you are compensated according to how much work you put in and nobody really complains as long as you get your work done.

    Another perk is you can use your overtime hours as vacation hours if you choose not to receive monetary compensation. However, that leads us to the...

    Cons

    MKA has a culture of working hard to the point of overwork. The good news is everyone stays late, but even so, nobody really enjoys working 50+ hour work weeks on a regular basis.

    More importantly, MKA's culture leaves you feeling like a tiny cog in a huge machine. I know I personally don't feel invaluable to the operation, and sometimes that leaves me feeling like my personal growth can be stunted a bit.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Magnusson Klemencic Associates.

    Interview Details

    Very laid back and relaxed... there were no technical aspects to this interview whatsoever, as MKA is fairly confident they can rely on your stellar academic background (they only hire from a select number of accredited programs) and trust that they can teach you everything else. The main point of the interview is really to get to know you and make sure you're a good fit for the office culture.

    Negotiation Details
    Minimal negotiation, they hire right out of college/grad school so most people are just happy to be landing a great job.
