Pros

Employee owned (sort of) - can take the long-term view, with no shareholders demanding quarterly results Opportunities for travel Responsibility early in your career Amazing projects

Cons

Too much tolerance of poor performers Inconsistent vision Disconnect between the center of the firm in London and the different countries

Advice to Management

Demand more accountability

    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 Management

    Reward and recognize good staff.
