Great place to work but set in it's ways!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

ConsIT 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 Senior ManagementLook to empower staff and have the right managers in place.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
