Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

My fellow workers are brilliant and love what they do.

Cons

The amount of hours worked. No over time even for non-exempt employees.

Advice to Management

Partners should be interactive with the entire company. The offices being an open environment does not make it collaborative. Actually sitting with employees and seeing/helping with projects does create an atmosphere where people stay. Stop the brain drain.

    Pros

    I get to work with premier architecture firms and on very interesting projects. The culture of the office is closer to an architecture firm than other engineering firms.

    Cons

    It appears that the price employees pay for working on interesting projects is that they are not compensated as highly as other firms.

    Pros

    Three weeks of vacation standard. At Buro Happold, you work on some of the most interesting projects in the field. Opportunities to go abroad as well.

    Cons

    The pay at Buro Happold does not really compete with the rest of the field. Although the projects are interesting, there is little recognition of a job well done. They expect employees to work well more then 40 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Although management tries to "get in touch" with the common workers at the office, there is a large gap between what the employees need and want, and the actions of the management. Morale would increase with only a small amount of effort and resources.
