    Pros

    Good technical exposure as graduate engineer Friendly atmosphere Helpful seniors

    Cons

    Technical & managerial growth is slow after 2-3 years as graduate engineer Average compensation Due to being a consultancy, flow of work can be inconsistent. Average appreciation of employees' effort - rewards in terms of bonuses and promotions can be slow. Can better promote technical growth among employees.

    I have been working at Mott MacDonald full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Culture of the company is very down to earth and unified throughout the world. Because of its ownership structure (employee owned), the drive is about excellence, client satisfaction and pride of doing a good job. Opportunities to have a very diverse career but nothing will fall on a plate. you have to go get it.

    Cons

    Decisions can appear long because of the inertia of a large Group. Pay is decent/market but unlikely to become outrageously rich working with Mott. Not enough business driven at times

    Pros

    Some of the work they do is very admirable and the field consultants are usually great and well educated people.

    Cons

    Low pay, No training, Terrible management, Unfair (UK gets all their holidays and then some, US barely get any) No room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs a lot of work. Upper management only care about making profits to fill their own pockets and stuff their own faces. Maybe they can pay their employees a decent salary if they shave a little off of the hundreds of thousands they make. Show some empathy for you employees and how about you let the US employees have just as many holidays and vacations as the UK folks?

    I have been working at Mott MacDonald part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Over the past 8 years of working for Mott MacDonald my role has changed and adapted to my skills and abilities as well as the changes in my home life (maternity leave etc). If you work hard then you are rewarded with opportunities and exciting challenges.

    Cons

    Salaries aren't brilliant but my opinion is that you don't do what we do for money, we do it to change the world.
