Landscape Architect (Former Employee) – Cambridge – 12 October 2018
Pleasant open-air office to work. Multi-disciplined workplace with a good mix of young to old professionals. A little dated in its strategy and output. Plenty of bureaucracy for a large organisation as can be expected. Benefits and pay very good.
Typical day at work - boring, nothing gets done Learned - a lot about multicultural and global business Management - okay, but not enthusiastic Workplace culture - strange, cause nobody talks to anybody, emails only. People do not even know who works on the same floor with them. Hardest part - do the job with zero training about the system, zero handover and absolutely useless/boring/pointless 3-4 hours meetings Enjoyable part - multicultural offices, very interesting to see how same business operates completely different way in various countries.
Work Experience Placement (Former Employee) – Cambridge – 1 November 2018
My time with Mott MacDonald was very brief but I enjoyed it immensely. Those who where already employed there were very supportive and the variety of tasks I was given was good. I was very impressed with the professionalism shows and would definitely recommend working here.
I would highly recommend at least getting some work experience at Mott MacDonald. The working environment is just superb! Through the work experience, I was able to discover which path was right for me.
Trainee Technician (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 26 June 2018
This company offers high levels of support within their training program enabling me to develop many skills that have been transferred to future job opportunities. The company ethos is exceptional and the staff moral is extremely high as a result of this. This company works on some very prestigious projects and manages them effectively to a high standard.
Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee) – Bentley – 22 June 2018
MMB is set up mainly to serve UK water AMPs and is a tier 1 contractor who do a good job for difficult clients. They have an unusual triangular hierarchy. Safety is paramount at MMB with plenty of safety initiatives and targets.
Principal Aviation Planner (Current Employee) – London – 23 May 2018
I would not recommend this company to anyone who is experienced in the workplace and not an engineer. Career advancement is very much in the old network of if you are a favourite, or a graduate. If you are a standard worker, forget it! Wishing everyone luck in their future careers, but for me it has been a disappointment and I knew from the very beginning, regretfully it was too late!
No comments (Current Employee) – No comments – 13 April 2018
The approach to overseas offices are different in terms of projects and salary package. Opportunities mainly dependent on the management's business decisions and there is no proper employee performance appraisal in place
No proper appraisal procedures, salary package below industry standards
Graduate engineer (Former Employee) – Bahrain – 1 March 2018
Management at MM was excellent, work environment is great, and they take good care of their employees, it was a pleasant company to work with, It was unfortunate that I had to leave it due to the reason being that they could not give me an unpaid one year annual leave to pursue my master.
CAD Technician (Former Employee) – Sheffield, South Yorkshire – 6 February 2018
Mott MacDonald had a refreshingly ambitious approach to new technology, at least when compared to my previous company. However their approach to training lags behind their forward-thinking ideals. They need to invest more time/ money in 'upskilling' staff for their strategy to pay off.
Diverse and wide reaching organisation with somewhat staid management style
Manager (Former Employee) – South East Asia – 13 January 2018
Fantastically diverse in range of professional disciplines and projects. Somewhat staid management style. Poor interdepartmental communication that may often lead to loss of opportunity and frustrations in Unit leaders. Compliant with International standards on employee developmemt but limited routes for progression due to an aged incumbant senior management team.
Diversity in people and projects, large scale complex projects
Conservative business approaches and systems, lack of creativity and innovation
