Could be great. But let down by the people

Director (Current Employee)

I have been working at Buro Happold full-time for more than 3 years

ProsAmazing projects. Strong History. Still well regarded in the market.

ConsThe senior partners and directors fight like feudal kings. Positive co-operation and culture is much talked about but rarely lived. Full of clever individuals who talk a good game but only feed their own self interest. I was deeply unhappy at Buro Happold.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmploy an outsider (preferably a non-engineer) to run the firm. Create some governance for decision making. Decide on the strategy and direction and allow individuals the space to meet the objectives. Manage performance.

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