I liked the people and had an enjoyable time working there. The Projects were interesting, and I liked the occasional site visit. There was a lot of out of office get togethers if you wanted to join in. Good pension scheme. Easy place to get to from the Railway/bus stations. Easy to walk/cycle. Excellent bike shed.
Complete lack of positivity or cooperation, appalling leadership and mentoring throughout at all levels. Working at this company had a negative impact on my mental health. Rewards are minimal, overtime is expected but not paid, culture is toxic. I do not recommend this company.

Great culture with good work ethics (diverse). Working with a lot of smart people, but sometimes there is a lack of management and organisation. Workdays can sometimes be long, but are manageable and there is a lot of flexibility in working hours. Current office environment is however not sub par, they do not 'practice what they preach' with regards to health and well-being in this office.
I developed a number of great skills working at Burohappold. The office had a fun and laid back atmosphere with no obvious hierarchal issues. I supported partners in the various disciplines and always felt encouraged to achieve more by them. I would recommend BuroHappold for engineers all of levels and also recommend if you're looking for a starting support role.
Not a lot of room for progression for support staff
Buro Happold is a welcoming and fun place to work. The significant projects allow you to develop a high status project portlio and career with added benefits such as chartership training schemes. The average salary is below other similar companies which is the companies biggest downfall.
Chartership training scheme
Long hours at times
Positiva, magníficas condiciones de trabajo alto nivel de proyectos.
Buro Happold must be one of the best engineering companies to work for, depending on which office you are based at. You will be working with highly motivated and industry leading engineers. I got a lot of support and inspiration from my seniors and colleagues. However, I was not satisfied with the managers in my base office. Pros: You come in contact with the best people in the industry, you get to work on great projects. Cons: You probably won't get paid for doing overtime. Some of the managers do not know how to manage their junior staff.
Great work colleagues, amazing projects and career prospects
Unsatisfactory management, no overtime pay
Buro Happold have been involved in world class high profile projects for nearly forty years. Having spent nearly ten years with the company myself I have been involved in a long list of prestigious projects. You can expected to be treated as a grown up and personal development is encouraged by various in house training events etc.
Very hard place to work without any support from management, OR HR I have never ever seen such a turn over in staff , business support and engineers, in all my working life. Very dishonest company, lots of untruths told any one coming in soon changes their mind and stars looking elsewhere. Regional operations manager very controlling, nobody is allowed an opinion unless it goes through them first. Quite a few promises made but not kept Some of the partners of ok, but others are so far away from reality, for an engineering company, Senior managment has no problem bawling team members out if front of whoever maybe around. Pay is rubbish. No breaks,
Christmas party, and free boozy BBQ's
long hours and no respect
