      Thank you for taking the time to leave a review about your time in our Sydney office. It was great to read that you were exposed to a broad range of opportunities in your time with us. It was disappointing to read your comments about the office culture and felt that let down by the way feedback and planning was handled by management. We'll definitely pass your feedback on to our People and Culture team. Wishing you all the best with your next career move.

      Pros

      Career growth, meaning you can learn and grow your personal skills not expecting to get promoted though. Work life balance is also good.

      Cons

      Horrible senior management team who don't care about their staff, They only care about the revenue of the company. They don't care how you develop things and how you deliver projects. Specially at Transport sector.

      Pros

      Variety of projects of medium to small. Reasonably competitive pay. Tier 1 in NZ, but more of a Tier 2/3 in Australia.

      Cons

      Being smaller consultant means not so many landmark projects to be involved in as a principal consultant. Typically Beca will subcontract to larger consultants to be involved in big projects. This can often be an unpleasant experience for the subcontracted staff who are ridden harder than the principals staff. Some difficult personalities employed whilst I worked there. Cant hold that against the company as a whole. Was just unfortunate for the team. The good managers and leads left. The penny pinchers remained. This negatively affected the culture of the office. Managers that remained seemed to not really care about the staff anymore. Was sad to see.
