    I have been working at Mace

    Pros

    Large company, excellent expertise and reputation within construction. Good company vision. Support professional development & training and pay for professional membership fees.

    Cons

    Mace relies to heavily on the construction arm of the business to the detriment of consultancy. Conflict if interest can occurs between cost/ project management/ construction. Poor mid level leadership and management leading to poor culture. No clear promotion structure. Mace reports a annual profit around 1.5% of turnover of £2Bn annually. Poor levels for a company of that size. Lack of investment in offices, technology, systems.
