    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Mace full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Salary and great projects are a plus, although not when you take hours worked into account.

    Cons

    Politics and senior management who pander to the owners at every opportunity in a bid to stay in favour. Work life balance was very bad and although lots gets said about employee wellbeing, some managers do nothing to safeguard workers. Whilst there I saw some really good people leave the business. The long hours culture is alive and well at 155 Moorgate.
