I have been working at Mott MacDonald

Pros

Open and flexible working environment, not too much emphasis on hierarchies, reasonable opportunities for advancement and encouragement to advance. The work-life balance is on the whole fairly good, and the work is project-focus so working additional hours is only expected where necessary. It is not a requisite for advancement. The culture of the company is in general friendly, and most of senior management are very open and responsive people. The salaries available to staff on lower grades are good when compared to competitors. On the whole the people at mott macdonald are friendly, highly skilled and ready to share skills with others, There is a strong feeling of teamwork and very few selfish or egotistical people.

Cons

Very large organisation in which people can get lost, not enough recognition given to technical experts. Also the holiday allowance is very poor indeed, and in general the benefits structure is poor. There is very little flexibility available. Annual leave is limited to 20 days plus 2 statutory days. Generally many employees can get lost in the huge organisation, however due to the skill shortage in most disciplines ambitious individuals get progress as they wish, with hard work. There is a high staff turnover, but this is true of most companies in this field and is partly due to the limited salaries on offer for technical jobs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Staff turnover largely due to lack of recognition given to workers with strong technical skills but little ambition to become managers.

    Pros

    Some of the work they do is very admirable and the field consultants are usually great and well educated people.

    Cons

    Low pay, No training, Terrible management, Unfair (UK gets all their holidays and then some, US barely get any) No room for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs a lot of work. Upper management only care about making profits to fill their own pockets and stuff their own faces. Maybe they can pay their employees a decent salary if they shave a little off of the hundreds of thousands they make. Show some empathy for you employees and how about you let the US employees have just as many holidays and vacations as the UK folks?
