    Pros

    - Great projects.
    - Great staff and culture.
    - Casual dress code and relaxed atmosphere.
    - Flexible work environment

    Cons

    - Global IT system is inefficient despite spending a high % of time and money improving it according to the partners.
    - Lack of global structure on certain things such as report format, modelling, QA, quarterly reviews (seems to be different depends on the office location), etc.
    - Pay is below average in the market.

    Advice to Management

    1. Improvement transparency of the management team i.e. what is the hierarchy of the partners in Cundall, especially when there are multiple partners in an office.
    2. Develop a global standard and enforce it - at the moment seems to be different depending on where you work.

    Pros

    Good atmosphere and management are easy to talk to and are open to ideas. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Understaffed at times meaning you have to cope with various projects and timescales, but that isn't any different from most companies these days.

    Advice to Management

    Better training for graduates, more open to bringing in contractor's at busy times to ease pressure on engineer's.

    Pros

    Great projects, great staff, fun atmosphere, relaxed dress code, encourages learning

    Cons

    Work can be not very rewarding at times when you don't get to see your recommendations through to construction. Only offer design advice, but don't get to actually do the final design in some cases. Working on achieving Green star ratings is a living nightmare. Green Star ratings are not challenging and requires lots of very mundane paper work.

    Advice to Management

    Add some more structure to your training program for new grads. They are sometimes lost in the fray.
