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

Pros

Incredible projects to work on around the world. Offices are staffed with people from all over, not just locals. Decent professional development opportunities. Great internship opportunities. Benefits are decent.

Cons

Lower than average pay. Political minefield. Hard to believe the behavior of upper management is tolerated. Slow to promote from within, they usually hire upper level positions from outside the firm. They tend to favor Brits over Americans in the US offices.

Advice to Management

Take a good hard look in the mirror. There are some bad apples in the upper ranks.

    I have been working at Arup full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Challenging and engaging work pushes employees improve technical engineering skills. Very rewarding work once you see a project in construction. The company is large enough to provide engineers with a range of different projects and daily work tasks ranging from conceptual design through construction administration. Multiple jobs all over the US and potential opportunities to travel with enough experience and the right skills

    Cons

    Stressful environment and hard deadlines must be accomplished. Expected to work more hours than typically billing out. Promotions and internal advancement within company takes time and employees have to be patient to gain respect from co-workers
