    I worked at Arup full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They treat their employees really well, the company ethics are outstanding, there are plenty of fun activities and benefits in addition to the intense workflow. The office I worked in, following the entire company's "green" mandate, had facilities for showers and lockers for people to change in should the go for a workout during lunch or choose to commute by bicycle.

    Cons

    When the economy is tough, it doesn't matter how well your own office is doing, cuts are across the board. Also the company is ridiculously huge, so getting in touch with someone with whom you need to work with, who may be in another country entirely, can be a arduous, slow process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When doing layoffs, judge based on the office's progress. It is not fair to cut someone who has been performing well simply because it's 'across the board" when another office has been failing.

    Interview Details

    I was invited to join the second interview in the career fair. The questions of the interview are all related to personal behavior, such as the leadership experience during your pass work experience and the problem solving skills. The recruiters are very nice and listened your answer very carefully.
