    Pros

    1. reputable company
    2. helpful staff
    3. flexible working hours (to be agreed by line manager)

    Cons

    1. current projects are mostly leftovers from other consultants' win and didn't want to do
    2. selective reasoning in firing and hiring.
    3. still stuck in a traditional mindset with resistance towards change.
    4. lack of career progression

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    while other consulting engineers are merging horizontally to become bigger and providing one-stop shop to the Client, Atkins is taking a vertical approach to merge with more of the same kind from various countries (Denmark, US, Western Australia). Is becoming a bigger engineering design firm the right approach for the future or becoming one-stop shop like others? This strategy will make or break the company.
