    I have been working at Mott MacDonald full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work life balance and flexibility around non-work commitments.

    Really nice people, supportive culture. People tend to stay a while which leaves some continuity (also a negative)

    Cons

    Risk averse in that they are slow to take on new opportunities and services.

    There are barriers to moving between areas and lack of collaboration between all the different business units. Consulting practice not as valued internally as engineering side of business.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on middle management levels, those coming out of the graduate scheme who are ambitious but there aren't currently the opportunities for them to progress in the way that want.

    I have been working at Mott MacDonald full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Real integrity, great opportunities to work globally, people aren’t just numbers, employee ownership leads to high rewards for senior staff, company is really looking to accelerate change to try and lead the field

    Cons

    If you’re not open to change, it may not be the place for you at the moment, there can be a lack of transparency in routes to promotion/pay rises

    Advice to Management

    The benefits of employee ownership should be available much earlier in your career, and for less senior people. The opportunities for international assignments should be wider shared

    I worked at Mott MacDonald full-time

    Pros

    A lot of diversity in the work, especially in terms of geography. There is a lot of flexibility in terms of working from home.

    Cons

    Bad management of work although this was specific to my team. It took a long time for work to get handed down and I often struggled with my time sheets at the end of the week due to it.
