Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Arup full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

A well known company that has designed some of the most iconic building in the world, the london eye, Sydney opera house, the birds nest and water cube for the Olympics.

Cons

Poor Leadership, the upper management sits in a bubble and does not care about happens in the field organization, The COO is clueless about what happens in the rest of the businesses especially in HR

Advice to Management

Clean up HR, bring in some new people to add some excitement at the upper management level. Too many long term folks making decisions based on what they did 10 years ago.

    I worked at Arup full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Arup does some cutting-edge work in all disciplines it is involved in. Good work life balance for employees

    Cons

    IT is bloated though and very fragmented. Many a times, the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing.

    Corporate Services work culture is different from the rest of the firm. Excellence not rewarded all the time. Planning is minimal and people are overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Look to empower staff and have the right managers in place.
