    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    • Compensation and Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Senior Engineer in London, England

    I have been working at Arup full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Very friendly staff - Some very interesting projects - Excellent work-life balance

    Cons

    - Low pay (that's the industry) - Work stream very uneven - Very difficult to make things happen, bottlenecked by people at decision positions - Very difficult to move internationally

    Advice to Management

    Close the gap between the message from the board and the reality of the company. The board say they want young people to move between offices and build their network in the company. In the reality, moving offices is very difficult to do. You need to be very lucky, be at the right place at the right time.
