      Pros

      A good view on people development and training and inclusion and ethics at group level. Good opportunities to progress, supportive managers etc. Good at informing staff of management decisions and reasoning.

      Cons

      Sometimes there is a siloed approach across different business units and divisions. They seem to retain staff that are clearly under performing.

      Pros

      Mott MacDonald has a wealth of resources, good opportunities to expand your career (if you are made aware) and has a good ethos regarding employee wellbeing. Mott MacDonald tries very hard to be the best that it can be.

      Cons

      The company is so big that sometimes there are so many processes to go through that the essence of the job you are trying to do gets lost. In addition, sometimes the job pressures are great and the employee gets forgotten although I would suggest this is the same in any company!
