    Pros

    Big company, great reputation in the industry. I attended a few interviews after leaving the company, every manager I met liked to hear that I come from Arcadis/ EC Harris.

    Cons

    The office politician could be a lot to take. Since the office has about 100 employee. there was training for juniors in the beginning, after a few sessions, then the training stopped.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the training for junior employee! The internal meeting of sharing project experiences are great too, please keep it going.

    Pros

    - Experience working in a range of sectors
    - Experience working in a range of service lines
    - Good mobility, good rate of client/project change if requested
    - Enjoyable culture
    - Small enough team to be able to make a real difference and be recognised, large enough to be good socially

    Cons

    - Below average reward level and system. This is equivalent to similar consultancies in similar sectors but fails to compete with big management consultancies.

    I worked here as assistant project manager and had very pleasant experience with my co-workers. The Senior manager is really nice person and she was always willing to help you if you have any questions. And the ambient is relax and fun.

    Nothing. But I'd love to be given more tasks to help me learn about engineering projects faster.

    Nothing
