    I have been working at Mace Limited full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to create your own career path and work on high profile construction projects. Well defined corporate identity and service offering. Strong leadership at top and upper levels of business management. Entrepreneurial spirit encouraged.

    Cons

    London-centric management structure. Investment in talent development focused predominantly in the UK. Transferring between businesses within the Group could be streamlined.

    Advice to Management

    Develop strategies for training staff that work outside of the U.K. Particularly in soft skills and Mace processes.

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

    Pros

    Really good news... I wish they close the rest of their offices as this's very not loyal company. They don't deserve business as they treat their employees bad.

    Cons

    Nothing to say...Nothing to say... They promise and they aren't keeping their promises

    Advice to Management

    No advices. They will fail soon or later. Hopefully they will get what they deserve. I am sure, they don't care about people's life.

    Pros

    Free sodas, the clients are great to work with.

    Cons

    Literally every other month someone quits the team. The work environment is extremely hostile and not a healthy work environment. HR is not supportive and is only concerned with the company’s interest. There is no training at this job so you are set up for failure. Management has high turnover as well. People aren’t being fired, they are quitting. There is no advancement at the Houston site for this company. They client is Invesco. Invesco is great.

    Advice to Management

    They need a whole new management team at the Houston site. Mace Macro is a joke including HR. HR only protects the company's interest. HR covers up for the awful managers.

    Pros

    Mace is one of the leading construction firms in London with a certain amount of operations in UK regions and some international locations. You get to work on some of London's and UK's iconic projects and programs. A great addition to anyone's CV.

    Cons

    Both a pro and a con for this business is that it is run by the people who own it. On the up side, decisions can be made quickly, on the down side there may be little transparency in senior management decision making and unclear accountability for these decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the corporate functions such as HR, training. Overall competency management.

    Pros

    Get exposure to really interesting projects and work alongside some very senior members within the company. Theres a fantastic network of people around you to ask advice and this is fantastic for personal and professional development.

    Workload is mostly fairly varied as well which keeps the job interesting. Lots of engagement with stakeholders and design team.

    Cons

    The working hours can be long and the workload sometimes hard to manage, however this tends to come in waves as the project deadlines mount up.

    Advice to Management

    Promote flexible working hours more.
