    I have been working at Mace full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people, social events, team dynamics and project diversity. A great office to work in. Access to upper management is frequent and easy.

    Cons

    Line management, training and onboarding could do with some more structuring. Feedback on projects and allocation not taken too seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Currently goal setting and feedback on a quarterly basis only feeds from management downwards. Where is the mechanic for managees to provide documented feedback up the chain?

    Pros

    Big international company providing opportunities in various locations. Some senior managers with relevant experience may give you additional knowledge and help regarding professional growth.

    Great inequality in the treatment of British staff, and other expats and local employees. Inadequate treatment regardless of experience or results regarding both Opportunities and Compensation

    Advice to Management

    There are people other than English with appropriate knowledge and skills who work hard and should be paid accordingly

    I worked at Mace full-time for 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

    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.

    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...

    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.
