Arup Employee Review

Extremely poor work/life balance imposed on staff

Traditional 9-5:30 working does not apply. It’s more 10-7:30 on a good day. I was suddenly expected to work overseas every second week, and they enforced that I travel on Sunday midday because of flight times at no extra pay, just once I got a half day in lieu. None of this was mentioned in interview. Manager was unprofessional and unliked by the whole team because of these pressures on people. It’s pot luck with the teams/management you end up with and experiences will vary. Positive note the office itself is great.

Excellent company to work for. Friendly and great benefits. Very good working conditions. Respectful colleagues, encouraged to succeed and improve in your job.It's a company that provides a stable career so probably more suited to people later in life, not so great if you're young and want to excel your career rapidly.
