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

    Pros

    Very flexible, relaxed place, great colleagues - not stuffy/snobby at all compared to some places I've worked in the past. Something for everyone whether you're very technical or prefer managerial tasks. Chartership scheme good, well organised and get you on track quickly. Well organised company i.e. IT support, training, everything on sharepoint etc. Lots of opportunity to grow. Good socials.

    Cons

    Slow IT upgrades (more of a past concern really). Not enough design reviews. Impossible to search for past projects and track down existing drawings etc to see whats been done before.

    Advice to Management

    Have more design reviews with younger engineers rather than adhoc sit downs in front of a computer or FE model, there is not enough emphasis on understanding basic engineering principles. Get more feedback from engineers regarding high-level BIM processes etc, less flow-charts/"big ideas" on a powerpoint more tangible ways to do particular tasks.

    Pros

    Great collaborative working atmosphere and respect between colleagues

    Cons

    Wages are on the low side and benefits seem to be years behind the market. Business focused more on driving through the brand than its people.

    Advice to Management

    Brand only works if your staff believe in it - they don’t if you don’t walk the walk eg. EDI, well-being and flexible working

    I have been working at Mott MacDonald full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I worked with some great teams at MM, and the more junior/lower levels all look out for each other.

    Cons

    Lack of progression for administrative and supporting roles.

    Advice to Management

    Look after those in supporting roles, not just those at the top. Surely an engineering company should know that if you don't have good support everything else crumbles!
