    I have been working at Atkins full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    A collaborative atmosphere has evolved over the past year, with all market areas looking to bring the varied professional practices together to provide best in class solutions to our clients.

    Cons

    There are a few remaining silos that need to break down their walls and work collectively to bring the full suite of professional service to their market areas.

    I worked at Atkins full-time

    Pros

    Friendly, laid-back atmosphere, flexible work schedule

    Cons

    Because of organization changes, people are laid off unexpectedly, The ones who are left are expected to pick up the extra work without being compensated. Expected to work overtime without compensation if you're a salaried employee, not enough work/life balance, pay is below average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value current employees

    I have been working at Atkins full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    nothing that I have seen last few months

    Cons

    I regret that I accepted Atkins offer a few months ago, my group manager who is an immature individual provided incorrect information to convince me.

    Americas Director who seemed to be a nice person laid off. My colleague told me that she was back-stabbed by some of the managers who want to take her place. These managers were her best friends in the office.

    Morale is very bad in the office,technical leads act as slave drivers in the office, everyone hates them in our group. I am looking forward to leaving this place asap.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    identify bad managers and technical leads and get rid of them.

    I worked at Atkins full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The health, etc. benefits in the US are good compared to other companies (not sure how they compare in other regions around the world).

    Cons

    1.) As with many companies these days, employees are pushed hard, so the work-life balance is quite poor. 2.) In the US, the culture has changed a bit for the worse, since Atkins acquired PBSJ. 3.) The company doesn't seem terribly interested in retaining top talent. Instead, they definitely interested in pleasing the share-holders, and the bonus eligible staff, which has resulted in a few large reductions in force (layoffs), but I guess that goes with the territory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thin out the upper, and middle management (in the US and elsewhere). In my opinion, there seems to be too many chiefs, directors, and regional this or that's drawing huge salaries, which prevents the people that actually do the work from getting cost of living raises (give the people that actually do the work deserved recognition, and compensation).
