Anyone looking for an Architectural intern / Design Staff team member in the DFW Metroplex? I recently decided to step away from an entry level position due to both small workplace bullying; and not getting any full time benefits despite being a full time employee. I brought the issue of “workplace bullying” to the attention of the Senior Principal of the firm, and instead of addressing the issue they decided to downplay the actions of their toxic staff, making it seem like I was sensitive.
