    I have been working at Arup full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great office locations and many employee benefits offered in work and social. Engineering design focused projects and design skills high lighted.

    Cons

    Service teams for Digital, resources and accounting get different priority as viewed as only able to offer internal services and no option to apply skills to external fee earning work.

    Advice to Management

    Take on board established employees skills in service teams so they can assist to make client project work more successful rather than getting new consultants.
