Pros

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

Cons

The 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 Management

Employ 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.

    Pros

    More opportunities to work on iconic projects although they are getting less. Colleagues are generally nice.

    Cons

    Senior management is poor and getting worse and worse. Basically everyone works on their own without support. Salary is relatively low. Promotion is not always fair.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and get appreciation on how hard they are working and how much pressure they are taking. Please try to improve business / project management.


  2. A decent comapny to work for................

    Pros

    Work with very talented people and have some great projects.
    A good team spirit despite recent hardships.
    There are some very inspiring partners and directors.
    Get to work in very stylish offices in good locations.

    Cons

    Below average salary and lots of dead wood at the top.
    The support structures and staff are of poor quality in comparison to the technical staff and services.
    Too many non work winners/ fee earners to support.
    Poor promotion opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    If somone is employed as a director or above they should be winning work and paying for themselves, thnot relying on the techincal staff to support them with their work wining efforts.
