What do you mean by "Professional Development"?
Our approach to professional development is, well, a bit like “choose your own career path”.
CORE SKILLS AND CAREER PATHS
We have a set of core skills we need our team to perform at expected levels, and we have advancement paths that could direct you to develop design expertise, client proposal prowess, and/or management mojo by working with our principal team.
Every one of us, even the principals, are learning, and pursuing objectives that we’ve set for ourselves, which we support each other to achieve.
AMBITION IS OPTIONAL
Many of us have been a cog in the machine that charged us with a “grow or die” approach, and we just can’t get behind that. As long as you can perform to our clear and reasonable standards for communication and quality, you can choose to balance your work with other priorities. It’s your call.
