I have been working at BuroHappold full-time

Pros

More opportunities to work on iconic projects although they are getting less. Colleagues are generally nice.

Cons

Senior management is poor and getting worse and worse. Basically everyone works on their own without support. Salary is relatively low. Promotion is not always fair.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees and get appreciation on how hard they are working and how much pressure they are taking. Please try to improve business / project management.

    I worked at BuroHappold full-time

    Pros

    Full of clever people who have sincere motivations and aspirations.

    Cons

    They will tell you all about how it was founded by a Quaker and how ethical they are. They are not. There is an excess of arrogance and insecurity, to the detriment of staff, business and the bottom line. Some senior partners are loose canons and no one seems to care how much this damages the business.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking you know everything. Stop invoking Ted Happold when he would no longer recognise the company he founded, or the behaviour it engages in now. Control your partners before they sink the ship, if it's not already too late.
