    Worst Place I've Ever Worked

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe location of the office and the pay was on par

    ConsHugely negative culture, driven to be profitable on all projects yet completely inadequately staffed and supported on projects leading to insane work/life balance. Project estimates being slashed by other divisions in order to win bids, but then impossible to successfully finish projects.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdequately resource in order to reach profitability, not after. Don't differentiate solely on price (we're too big to compete with the small companies on $ alone). Don't be afraid to blow out the cobwebs.

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

    Joined as a fresh graduate

    Structural Engineer (Current Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsVery good colleague relationships. Very few, or no office politics.
    A great environment to learn detail design in depth because there are many seniors, directors and experts around for you to ask around.

    ConsPay wise is not very competitive among the big construction consultants. You tend to stuck at doing a similar role over and over again. For example, junior will always be doing design in office. Request to follow seniors/directors to attend site/progress meetings is always rejected.

    Always rushing and focusing on "deliver" drawings.

    No standard office design procedures/checklist for design. Young fresh engineers are lost, some important considerations might missed out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease try to groom young engineers to be a complete package.
    Allow young engineers to follow seniors/directors to attend meetings to learn how to deal with people.
    We do not expect you to pay more than competitors, but at least pay on par.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Absolutely disgraceful management

    Engineer (Current Employee)
    Riyadh (Saudi Arabia)

    ProsThe staff are a great bunch

    ConsThe management have no idea how to run a company. Haven't been paid for over two months and still have no legal status in Saudi Arabia

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet off your arse, get the iqamas sorted and pay your staff before they all leave.

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