Advice to ManagementAdvice

I understand as interns management cant invest too much time because they know there is a chance that interns may not come back but in my experience I rarely spoke to my manager and mainly worked hand in hand with regular employees or senior engineers. There should be a better level of communication between the two and allow the young engineer know what to do to become successful or how to manage one day and of course how to get paid better because ultimately thats eveyones goal

    I have been working at Arup

    Pros

    The culture is very comfortable and pretty fun. Arup makes an effort to keep its employees happy though food and office amenities. 3 weeks paid vacation, 2 weeks sick time, plus about 10 other holidays.

    Cons

    The compensation is not what i think it should be (meaning i'm underpaid). definition of milestones required for advancement are vague at best. Mid-level management has no power. Principles make all raise decisions, even for the underlings they may not interact with. this is a serious disconnect that leaves the young engineers at the mercy of their managers to convince the principles to promotes the younger engineer and give them raises. some of these managers don't seem to understand the structure leaving young engineers dissatisfied with lack of raises and promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less amenities and more pay. I don't need false praise, i want to know what i need to improve on to speed up my advance of ascent to the top.
