Very good work life balance - very bad career development after Chartership
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

Involved in interesting projects
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.

This company allows bullying AVOID
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.

Used to be a good company to work for
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?

After three and a half years my job sadly and abruptly ended which was very unfortunate. I had enjoyed the diversity of projects and sectors but obviously did not fit into the managements outfit.

Excellent company with great work life balance
I worked for Mott's for 2 years and enjoyed every minute of it.

The work environment was fun and you are constantly learning. The team support was excellent and although we were quiet busy, we always had fun.


For me, the hardest part of the job was when I had to leave, I left due to a situation that arose that was beyond my control.


I would highly recommend this place to anyone as a place of employment.

Great consultancy
Being employee-owned frees us to choose the work we take on and focus on the issues that are important to you – and us.

This means that our clients get the very best from us because we want to do a great job – the right job. We’re not in business to make the most profit for external shareholders. There are no external shareholder priorities to influence our decision making. We’re independent in thought and action, which means we advise you what is genuinely right for your business, not what is easy either for you or for us.

Not all it’s made out to be
Experience means nothing in here, you’re sold on the idea of progression & training to help you advance your career, this did not happen. You approach the subject of training & submit a request only to be told it’s not relevant to your progression. Brown nosing seems to get you places & working as part of a team doesn’t exist unless your in one of the many cliques within the department. There is genuinely some really nice people & potential work, however it’s getting the opportunity to meet them & work on them that’s the issue. Operating on a referral scheme to get friends or family in is a great idea to try earn an extra £1500 however when the system is cheated by others it becomes a joke. Benefits are the best thing about the workplace but like I said getting to enjoy them is another thing.

Reasonable place to work at
Not much to say. Nice place to work at with nice team. Management is supportive. It's just another typical day's work with not much of really challenging work.

During my working period with the company, I acquired a strong work ethics, thanks to the company core values. I highly recommend anyone keen on developing his or her knowledge and skills in engineering consultancy to join Mott MacDonald.

Good culture
Generally very good.

After my boss was ill for a long period I ended up being farmed out to another office and my line manager told me he did not have time to undertake his line management duties as he could not enter the time spent into the time management system. I was permanently on sub-contractor premises, so ended up feeling disconnected from my employer then left to work for the customer.
Pros
Good culture, competent personnel.
Cons
Line Management Time Resource

Leeds Front of House
Lovely professional staff & visitors who were a pleasure to help & look after. Beautiful state of the art office just 5 mins from Leeds train station, on the riverfront - great location. Help with the cost of train fares (if applicable), which are deducted from your salary. Not so lovely Office Manager!
