I worked at BuroHappold full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Friendly atmosphere, lots of interesting projects to work on, management seem down to earth.

Cons

Pay not the best, too dependent on public sector and middle eastern work.

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at BuroHappold full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
