    Work on project management from higher up and work on getting the disciplines to coordinate better. Need to have process for when projects get out of hand.

    Pros

    Oportunities worldwide.
    Flexibility.
    Good office infrastructure.

    Cons

    The US company is not as organised as in the UK. Administrative and supporting staff just does not help. But the worse is HR. Never seen a HR that just does not help and is not there for the employee. Also, they keep benefits as a minimum but say that they are way better than competitors- but no, they are not.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Good work experience, laid back office sometimes

    Cons

    They lie during their hiring process to get you to take the job. The employees that have a better work ethic get more work dumped on them. Sometimes it feels like a frat house.

    Advice to Management

    You guys should really fix the office culture.

    I have been working at Mott MacDonald full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Projects are interesting and have great "employee benefits package". Management is very willing to help when you communicate your goals. Very dedicated group of people. This has been a great place to work as a young professional.

    Cons

    Large company. Lack of collaboration and communication across engineering disciplines and offices.

    Advice to Management

    Collaboration between offices is lacking. Would advise to incorporate a program to increase communication and collaboration between disciplines and offices.
