Incompetent senior engineers, but plenty of perks.

I worked at Arup as a contractor for less than a year

ProsArup is a very large multi-national firm that can make or break your career as an engineer. A new graduate looking to obtain their PE could do a lot worse, and there are many areas in which to focus.

ConsThere seems to be a disconnect between competency and tenure. Why does a company like Arup keep people on staff that have no clue how to do basic tasks relevant to their own position? Because they have junior employees perform these tasks, and then when something goes wrong they throw them under the bus. So they need to have a constant stream of new graduates who leave for greener pastures. Also, there is too much public conversation about employees. I was shocked by what I heard employees say openly about other employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart cleaning house. Think outside the box when it comes to hiring. Stop hiring temps when there are plenty of engineers out there looking for permanent work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
