Pros

There are some really bright and professional people at Arcadis. I got to work with a few for a short period of time. Unfortunately, most of my time there was spent dealing with the bad apples from top to bottom.

Cons

Office politics, backstabbing, very poor management

Advice to Management

Promoting incompetence is not a long-term strategy for success.

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits. Worked on many different projects with some really bright and friendly co-workers. A good place to gain experience if you're just starting out.

    Cons

    Senior management is all politics and profits. ARCADIS' primary focus is on the next company it can acquire, meeting billable metrics and grabbing opportunities.

    Pros

    Absolutely some of the brightest people in the industry. Great projects and mentors for honing your specialized skill set. No problems getting the right specialized software to do the job. Pay is in-line and the benefits are slightly above average.

    Cons

    You feel like an independent consultant lobbying internally to maintain your billable workload. There is no workload planning, so you have to constantly take on too much work to make sure you meet billable goals. There is little cross-training, so what you were hired to do is what you will do everyday. You see your supervisor once a year during annual reviews. The office culture is bleak and slightly depressing. Hard to describe, but just not a happy place to work.

    Advice to Management

    There is no "I" in team and when everyone is working for themselves.....Put leaders in the leadership positions. A semi-annual email from the location leader about the building management having a appreciation luncheon is not leadership.
