    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Mott MacDonald full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You may be able to choose Clients and tailor this to gain experience you require to progress

    Cons

    Pay is poor, inconsistent approach to promotion. Grades mean very little. You are expected to do it all but with no appropriate compensation. You will live away from home and have a salary below industry.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people properly, your business is based on people and expecting them to go out their way and loose family life without proper pay leads to defection. I would not recommend working at MM as a result, and the excuses given are unbelievable and contradict Client data RE pay.

    Positive Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Mott MacDonald full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Civil Engineer Grad scheme (option of 2/3 rotations into different disciplines, if desired) Flexible working (home or other UK offices) Good Pension Excellent engagement between company and ECPs Responsibility from day one Great staff in the Leeds office

    Cons

    No access to buy shares until you reach a certain grade - senior management (approx. 6 -7 years away from starting as a grad) Behind on technology uptake (although improving)

    Advice to Management

    Typical day at work – fairly busy, working on projects, meetings or out to site. Learned - A huge amount about managing projects, people and budgets. Giving a great deal of responsibility from day one and learning every day still. Management – Very good so far. Good team dynamic, approachable and always available if needed, both senior managers and directors. Workplace culture – Multi-disciplinary work place with... a large number of ECP’s. Office is ever-expanding with new people starting all the time. Sports and socials are very popular, and events are on throughout the week to suit all tastes. Hardest part – The initial uptake of the vast about of information and project processes can be overwhelming, however support is there is needed, and you make yourself heard. Challenging to manage your deliverables with sometimes stretched resources. Enjoyable part - Multicultural offices, friendly, vibrant and open culture, well what I have seen so far. Motts yearly summer games with the rest of the UK offices!
