I have been working at Arup full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

They are all over the world, there is plenty of knowledge sharing between offices and colleagues and a good camaraderie among the lower ranks and a few of the upper echelons.

Cons

They continuously lose good people and tend to retain the average and mediocre people.
The salary, if you're in it for the money this is the wrong place. If you're in it for the recognition, again, maybe not the right place.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look among the offices and ask people what they really feel. There's good practices in many of those places that could be shared elsewhere - not all as social and cultural forms differ.

    Pros

    Retirement, Healthcare is inexpensive, many benefits.

    Cons

    office politics and an environment of fear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn some people skills and live with the ARUP values instead of making people scared so much of the time. You will get better employees. Actually value your employees instead of talking the talk.
