Bad practices by management
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Birmingham, West Midlands4 October 2019
You will have to work long hours for well below the average pay and conditions that you would get with other companies

The management structure is built up of friends and family where they pay themselves high salaries and high bonuses

They bully and intimidate staff with a very high turnover

There is very low moral within the company

Its not a place to work or trust the management
Pros
N/a
Cons
No bonus, low pay, long hours, bad management

I would not return to work this company.
Support Officer (Former Employee) –  Bristol13 June 2019
No support from senior management. When you do ask for support, they deem you as incompetent and try and find ways of moving you out.
You are never thanked for all your hard work and effort.
You do not get paid for any overtime, just TOIL.
Pros
Free fruit on specific days.
Cons
Over-worked and severly under paid

Good Company but hard to change department
Principal Engineer (Current Employee) –  Bristol, Bristol31 October 2017
It is very hard to move internally including sideways to other departments. Likewise work may be sluggish in one department having staff twiddle their thumbs rather than get work from departments which have more work than they can handle. Great company but depends a lot on which team you are in.
Pros
Good salary and benefits
Cons
Lack of work in some departments

Poor management and lack of support
Consultant (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London4 July 2017
Long hours expected despite not opting out of 40 hrs/week. Job was very sales oriented. Lots of superfluous internal paperwork where the same thing had to be replicated in three different formats.

Management were not focussed and certainly not supportive. Led to several embarrassing situations where I turned up for a job with no specification, had no idea what to invoice and had to fend for myself.
Pros
Salary was reasonable
Cons

Driven and fast paced
Programme Manager (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London19 June 2017
Extremely ethical strong company, very driven and fast paced working culture, so work life balance can be difficult to maintain. However interesting work and well rewarded. So for dedicated career people and younger people a great place to be. Very interesting and broad mix of roles and clients. On the whole a great place to be to drive a fulfilling career
However, if family balance is more important this may not be the right place for you as the hours can be long and the nature of the work means a lot of dedication is required.
Pros
Good Benefits package, good advancement prospects
Cons
Long hours, demanding culture

Relaxed, enjoyable work environment
Assistant Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Warrington, UK26 April 2017
Really good company to work for with a relaxed work environment and lots of benefits. Good work life balance. Offices are quite modern and open which makes coming to work more enjoyable. They provide training for everyone and also have regular meetings to make you aware of whats going on throughout the company in relation to new policies and project successes/lessons learned.

Welcoming professional place to work
L&D COORDINATOR (Current Employee) –  London Borough of Croydon27 October 2016
working in the HR team there's a lot of correspondence between other members of staff and managers.
On a daily basis I check my emails and calendar to see if any events are happening.
After I review my to do list and work through the urgent jobs.
After completing my to do list I update my line manager; depending on what the task at hand is I may have to correspond with various people in the team/ other colleagues based out of London via Skype or Skype conference calls.

Management are supportive with work load and try to share it out evenly.
you have the option to work from home when sick or have an appointment which is good; you can have minimal sick record as many things are done on the laptop or Skype.

The team normally goes out for lunch together which helps team building.
Pros
medical benefits, travel expenses, opportunity to work abroad as its an international company.
Cons
Projects may come to a hault instantly with no warning, Too many projects at one time, Things are not prioritised when theres too many things happening, Sending last minute invites for courses due to last minute preperation.

Work elsewhere...
UK Head of Resource Planning (Former Employee) –  London15 August 2016
A small minded organisation with stale leaders who are only interested in utilization of staff, trust me...poor benefits with the expectation you work long hours and give up your personal life for the cause...many more jobs to go here as further sites / offices are closed over the next few years...in fact, they are moving most roles over seas to enable cheap resources, so UK wages will be further reduced over time... that is the ARCADIS way...
Pros
Struggling to think here...
Cons
Poor Direction & Leadership...

Not a company to work for
Surveyor (Current Employee) –  Birmingham9 March 2016
Arcadis is not a company you would want to work for the staff turn around within this company is terrific you don't receive a car allowance or a company car but you are expected to travel all over the country there is no bonus scheme unless you are a senior manager upwards the salary is low and there is a lot of low moral throughout this company you are expected to work very long hours and therefore there is no work life balance at all. The management are profit driven only your co workers just do there own work there is no enjoyment working for Arcadis and if you are not 110% Arcadis they will harass you until you leave the company
Pros
No pros at all
Cons
Long hours, low pay, no bonus, no company car, no car allowance
