Featured Review

Former Employee - Senior Engineer

I worked at Arup full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Super bright colleagues. Interesting work. World-class projects.

Cons

Could be more ethical in project selection. Still do work for companies like BAE systems (who sell weapons to the Saudi's for use in war crimes in Yemen) and a fair bit of oil and gas work.
