Good place to start your career as their 70-20-10 learning policy will improve your engineering skills through the development of projects (70%), by explanations of colleagues (20%) and by direct training (10%). Usually the working hours are from 9.00 am to 5.30 pm but depending on the deadlines, unpaid overtime may be necessary. I would underline the respect among all colleagues, regardless of the management level. Comparing to competitors salaries in general are too low, and twice a year paid profit share won´t compensate that.

Exciting, fast paced place to work. Wouldn't recommend as a long-term place to work, slow level of progression for staff member. Perfect for an internship.

Senior Geotechnical Engineer (Former Employee) - Dublin
While often stressful, the work at Arup was almost always rewarding. The work was satisfying, interesting and wide-ranging. Colleagues are almost always excited and interested in what they do. Management take an active interest in your career progression and allow many opportunities for advancement and change. Work-life balance can be difficult to find though. If you are not proactive about setting limits to your time the job can too easily expand to fill the day.
