Best company i have ever worked for!
An honest company that has great values. You can progress at your own pace in any direction. I started out fixing kit and ended up working on huge projects and help combine teams together. Acoustics and ecology now work closely together. I really enjoyed my time there and am very sad to leave.

Old boys club
Arup trades on its reputation not on how creative its designers and consultants are. They talk the talk but don’t walk it as being predominantly a white Middle aged male management team, as previous reviewer states unless you are an engineer you have no value as part of the project delivery team. Engineers have very little site experience if any . Therefor struggle with construction concepts. conceptschallenges

Illusions of Grandeur
Arup is a nice place to work with nice people, but they are resting on their laurels. They have a great reputation in the industry as one of the top consultancies in the world, but in my experience they rely on this to win work, rather than letting consistency and quality of work doing the talking. If they do not move with the times and embrace change, the cracks will show more, and they will fall behind in the Industry. When I worked there everything was reactionary and last minute. They did not learn from their mistakes. Although the directors recognised the issues, they were not prepared to take the steps to improve this. People were expected to work late to make up for this, rather than update working behaviour and culture. Generally people are nice, but the professionalism I witnessed was outdated and tired. The directors said they had to improve quality and consistency, but I found this just be lip service, and when it came to it they were not prepared to do anything. Engineering knowledge and skill is obviously the core of an engineering business, but at times non-engineering staff were treated as lower class citizens. Although they were allowed to have a voice, this was often ignored or not taken seriously which made a mockery some non engineering staff. I have witnessed this often as an unfortunate culture of the construction industry, but I thought Arup would be better than this and see the value in all staff. Disappointingly, they are no different to other outdated companies who talk the talk, but when it comes to it, there is not a lot of substance or action. Nice people, but outdated and loosing their grip.
