Great career development opportunities but improvements are needed to better tie compensation to performance.

Pros

Many opportunities for driven individuals whether interested in technical work or project management work. Great technical network is available to all staff including very senior experts. Exciting projects also always seem to be coming down the pipeline.

Cons

Work-life balance expectations seem to vary significantly from project to project and manger to manager. Although this is somewhat driven by the field, there is a significant lack of diversity within the organization and seems be little value placed on diversity. Compensation is not well tied to performance even though this is a performance driven organization. Improvements are being made here but they are slow.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better link performance to compensation; Promote better work-life balance

    Work you to the bone kind of atmosphere. Management does not care about lower level staff.

    I have been working at ARCADIS US full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of work, so you don't have to worry too much about staying billable. However, the good opportunities are hard to come by (i.e. ones to learn and advance, work reasonable schedules, get recognition for your work). I've heard other offices are a lot better to be in than HR.

    Cons

    It's not a friendly office environment. People are very competitive or completely checked out. The main problem is the way they setup 'supervisors.' Most junior staff do very little to no direct work for their supervisor. It's a once a year meeting kind of thing, with supervisors taking no interest and never 'going to bat' for people getting raises/advancements. Also yes, as others have noted, the management changes frequently in this office, I don't know what it means, but it's not good. Your billability goal will be much higher than similar companies. You are pretty much expected to work overtime to meet these goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the supervisor system so that the people one works for most supervises. Allow people more 'work-life' balance because it's all talk and no action here. Don't be so snobby: Arcadis is not the best company, it doesn't have the best and brightest, and it could use work on client satisfaction.
