I have been working at Arup full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

We get to work on the highest profile projects in the world, with some of the sharpest people in the industry. Benefits are awesome, from health insurance, time off, 401k, etc. Very diverse and friendly employees.

Cons

The pay is not as high as others. The management expects you to work a lot. The management is aloof it seems most of the time, more concerned with financial performance of the office than performance of the workers. Rarely are poor performers let go, financials have to be really poor to lay people off. Seem to let really good ones go on because they don't care to develop them.

    Pros

    Incredible projects to work on around the world. Offices are staffed with people from all over, not just locals. Decent professional development opportunities. Great internship opportunities. Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Lower than average pay. Political minefield. Hard to believe the behavior of upper management is tolerated. Slow to promote from within, they usually hire upper level positions from outside the firm. They tend to favor Brits over Americans in the US offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a good hard look in the mirror. There are some bad apples in the upper ranks.

    I have been working at Arup full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Challenging and engaging work pushes employees improve technical engineering skills. Very rewarding work once you see a project in construction. The company is large enough to provide engineers with a range of different projects and daily work tasks ranging from conceptual design through construction administration. Multiple jobs all over the US and potential opportunities to travel with enough experience and the right skills

    Cons

    Stressful environment and hard deadlines must be accomplished. Expected to work more hours than typically billing out. Promotions and internal advancement within company takes time and employees have to be patient to gain respect from co-workers
