I worked at Clark Nexsen Architecture full-time (more than 8 years)Pros
Clark Nexsen offers many awesome perquisites that can be enticing to those new to the workforce or even those folks who are retired from the military (there are many in the Hampton Roads area). The company offers great pay (very consistent with the industry averages), amazing health benefits (especially if you are single, you pretty much pay nothing for health insurance and very little for dental), they offer a match for your 401k, and you have plenty of access to professional organizations, conferences, and events (all of which are usually paid for or reimbursed by the company).Cons
Although the company does provide great perks and benefits, there is definitely a down side if you are not a licensed professional architect or engineer. There are little to no opportunities for advancement if you are in an administrative role (ie marketing, accounting, project management assistance).
The company has suffered in recent years due to a few hardships, but it seems as if Clark Nexsen has bounced back after a couple rounds of "right sizing", ie layoffs. There is definitely a "silo" effect between the office locations, which more often than not operated as if they were separate companies. There was also a disconnect between the project teams and the marketing department, which was very unfortunate as the marketing department has the arduous task of writing proposals directly to client in order to bring work to the company.
There is also no contracts department at the company, which was pretty odd considering contracts and addendums to these documents are pretty major.RecommendsPositive OutlookDisapproves of CEO
