    I worked at Arup full-time for 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.
