I have been working at ARCADIS full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

ARCADIS is able to provide very challenging work and there are there are many opportunities to develop professionally by challenging old ways and making business process improvements.

Cons

Very low tolerance to any slippage in productivity (billability) in operations results in continuous anxiety throughout, including corporate services groups which have relativley immature measures for demand, capacity, and performance.

Advice to Management

There is still a bit of housecleaning to be done within the senior management group.

    I worked at ARCADIS full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Access to a wider range of discipline skill sets with merger.
    Better cost controls.

    Cons

    Arcadis is a conglomeration of smaller companies buying up small companies, and occassionally big companies - unfortunately still try to apply small company approach to large company issues.
    Revenue growth appears to be based on regularly acquiring another company, not on growing organically or growing strength of staff or quality of work.
    Feels like an engineering company structured by and run by accountants...

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourselves - clients don't hire brand names, they hire people.
