I worked at Arup full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

great innovative design driven practice. You get a lot of challenging projects and Arup fuses engineering with creativity. Lots of smart colleagues. Freedom. Ownership structure that engages you.

Cons

not-so-great work life balance. In some groups, little opportunity for promotion unless you really make yourself heard. Threat of becoming bureaucratic and corporate. Promotion to Director seems to be associated with leading a group, which is not suitable if you're a real creative type.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

beware not to become corporate. give more opportunities to senior gurus
