    Pros

    You get to interact with creative and intelligent people that are also kind and fun. Great work/life balance. The HQ has a great office and it is a pleasure to work in a modern building with great open spaces.

    Cons

    The pay is slightly below average but the access to the most interesting projects make up for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its good that the ethics of the company hasn't shifted, introduce more leadership and business training courses.

    I worked at Arup as an intern

    Pros

    Given lots of responsibility and opportunity; cutting edge work; work is challenging but rewarding; very friendly community; lots of after work activities (sports etc) and Friday drinks events; excellent location and facilities

    Cons

    As with most engineering firms, not many women employed in tech roles (but this might have changed since I was there). Aware of general dissatisfaction and frustration with senior management.
