I worked at Arup full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Arup continues to be well-recognized in the industry, which allows it to win high-profile projects.

Cons

Increased politics as the firm as gotten bigger. If you're not British, it's hard to move upward past the Associate level. Replies too much on structured review process, with grade levels. The firm seems to have issues getting rid of poor performers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward and recognize good staff.

    Pros

    Projects are amazing and training is incredible, thrown right into the mix and forced to become a great engineer. International recognition. Work life balance is great.

    Cons

    Engineering work in general can get dull and repetitive sometimes.
