      Pros

      Very good training program. Very good ethics with huge focus on supporting minorities, gender equality and sustainability (Mace is now net carbon zero).

      Cons

      Large organisation so can have drawbacks such as harder to get noticed by senior members.

      Good company to work generally

      Pros

      Flexible working, nice people, interesting projects, fantastic team work, career progression for some people in various sectors & great learning in many aspects, no regret at all.

      Cons

      I felt it’s only a tick box for the company image regarding promoting the diversity or females in power. I’m reality, it’s very male dominated company. It didn’t apply to me despite I am a very ambitious person with a great attitude to work & years of experience, very disappointing. The management didn’t support the above. The choices were to change the sector or leave the company to get a promotion after years of being at Mace. No payrise as kept hearing you haven't progressed higher; but in essence, they wouldn't allow/ support the progress. I left eventually, got permission & delivering high profile projects very successfully.

      Pros

      There are good opportunities if you look for them and are able to influence the right people. Work culture is good when you are dealing with fellow Mace people. Training opportunities are endless so you can up skill yourself

      Cons

      HR team is slow. Very difficult to break the mold and stand out. The bigger the company gets, the harder it is to not been seen as a number by HR unless you actively do something about it

      Good place to work

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The variety of clients and locations to work are fantastic. Mace is very flexible in terms of remote working, allowing staff to work from home or the office. Generally, people at Mace are very professional. Career progression is available.

      Cons

      The salary increase is low annually or some years there is none, this is not good when you live in London. Bonus is discretionary and it is tiny if there is any. The London office can be enhanced in terms of interior design, generally made of desks on each floor and meeting rooms. The offices need to be more collaborative, using colours and fun finishes with a variety of smart furniture to make it more appealing to work.

      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.
