    I worked at Mace full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Value staff development and put in resources to develop staff,
    Staff included in implementing the strategic vision.
    Good salaries and bonuses
    Variety of work internationally and UK although there seems to be a disconnect between international and UK for staff wanting to gain international experience or move back to UK after gaining international experience

    Cons

    No clear route for ex staff to get back into Mace. I, for example, left Mace to pursue an MBA. I would have loved to have been given options to return seamlessy after completing which I am due to in April 2019.
    Also there wasnt a clear route after completing a project internationally as to the options available. I was left on my own to leverage networks within Mace to get postings.
    Career progression and options needs to be made clearer and project employees wishing to gain experience at HQ need to be given the opportunity to fit back into HQ when there arent projects. That balance needs to be struck.

    Advice to Management

    Mace is a great place to work however note that ex-employees may want to return and a such there needs to be an avenue for that to happen seamlessly. I have written HR and have not had an iota of a response regards this.
