"I've worked for two firms who practice integrated design. It only works if you believe it works. It takes a culture of people who feel communication and innovation are key to success, and DLR Group has that culture. It's a mindset. With each practice in-house and at the table ready to collaborate, I find myself less siloed in my own design role than many of my peers."See all open positions
