Everyday was a different day, doing different tasks, meeting different people, different telephone conversations & queries. Loved meeting different customers & all staff are friendly & helpful. Hardest part for me is the long hours.

Everyone is responsible for their work. Very flexible, can be work from home.
There are plenty of materials for learning and certificate is provided.

Non earning staff ratio is very high; hence man-hour rate is high.
Cons
All fesilities are provided to the staff.

Brilliant place to Work, and a good team. However, they are reluctant to offer a payrise. If you are not concerned about how much you get paid, then definitely a good place to work.

I've worked for many companies that had excuses for not paying you or had so called computer problems!! They're are allot of those types out there and because of that no body wants to work for them!! Mott MacDonald always paid me for all my time and all my hours!!

Bad: I cannot think of anything bad about working at Mott Macdonald. As everything was good, it could have been because I was working remotely and was rarely at office.

A wide variety of interesting jobs. very little control over what you work on though. Very little support for career development so can get stuck working on boring projects. Wide range of specialist so can always ask help but very little support to put you on a job if 'you haven't got experience'.
Pros
Very good work life balance - management will also consider your personnel needs
Cons
Very bad career development after chartership

Working at some of biggest infrastructure projects in HK at the time and for a demanding goverment, we had to create innovative design solutions to satisfy the environmental criteria at all times and gain the public support on our solutions. Whilst working for an international team the guidance from the management at work level but also the cultural gaps had been very supportive. One of the hardest parts of the job was fulfuling the goverment's bureaucratic nature, which has resulted in long overtime hours. Also, although a UK company, in HK they have a 10 day annual leave allowance when you join the company that has made it very difficult for all us working there to visit our home countries.
One of the most enjoyable parts of working there was the team spirit between colleagues and knowleadge exchanged between the departments.

Mainly working for a client (Anglian Water) for four years. The estimating team was mainly built up of MM people. I was Senior Estimator working with Water & Wastewater, building estimates from high level through to more detailed. As part of the management team I mentored the junior members in all aspects of estimating setting tasks and overseeing their work.
Working in tandem I also estimated for Mott MacDonald as they have many clients requesting remote working, eg. Oil, Gas, Rail, Nuclear, Roads etc.

The culture was good depending on what part and section of the company you worked for, I can't speak for every department.

The most difficult part of the job was the expected travel and time away from family. The most enjoyable part was working with exceptional engineers and generally lovely people.

They allow managers to bully trainees, to the point where there is crying and anxiety. Other colleagues turn a blind eye as they are scared of particular managers.

Mott MacDonald used to be a good company to work for - that really cared for its staff. Now all it cares about is the bottom line - despite being employee owned. There is a lot of talk about well being and people being their main asset - but does it actually mean anything?
