    I have been working at Mott MacDonald full-time

    Pros

    none really. There are a number of good people that work in the Calgary office but beyond that ... no pro's. If seen other reviews that state similar to mine.

    Cons

    Lots.
    Poor working atmosphere
    Poor training
    Its tough times that the management are using to work people hard. There is a saying that is hung over people,"There are 10 people i can get to do your job if you don't want it"
    The management is a bunch of guys in the US that are nothing less than entitled and lord over everyone.
    I'm looking for a new opportunity.

    Pros

    Oportunities worldwide.
    Flexibility.
    Good office infrastructure.

    Cons

    The US company is not as organised as in the UK. Administrative and supporting staff just does not help. But the worse is HR. Never seen a HR that just does not help and is not there for the employee. Also, they keep benefits as a minimum but say that they are way better than competitors- but no, they are not.

    Advice to Management
