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

Pros

Arup does some cutting-edge work in all disciplines it is involved in. Good work life balance for employees

Cons

IT is bloated though and very fragmented. Many a times, the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing.

Corporate Services work culture is different from the rest of the firm. Excellence not rewarded all the time. Planning is minimal and people are overworked.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look to empower staff and have the right managers in place.

    I worked at Arup full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A well known company that has designed some of the most iconic building in the world, the london eye, Sydney opera house, the birds nest and water cube for the Olympics.

    Cons

    Poor Leadership, the upper management sits in a bubble and does not care about happens in the field organization, The COO is clueless about what happens in the rest of the businesses especially in HR

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up HR, bring in some new people to add some excitement at the upper management level. Too many long term folks making decisions based on what they did 10 years ago.
