Pros

What I appreciate in working with Ws Atkins and Partners Overseas is the professional values and news skills one can get by working with them.

Cons

What I'm afraid a downside of the company is the contract renewal ambiguity. Things should be more clear to the staff regarding the job security.

    Pros

    There was plenty of employee help available within the company re HR issues and training opportunities. Senior management seemed interested in the department and its employees. the usual employee benefits applied.

    Cons

    Unfortunately I had the impression that the culture within my department was stuck in a bad place and no one was able or willing to move it forward. There was an incredibly high number of unhappy employees that I worked with, employee value was low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This applies to Group IS.

    You have around 5 Programme Manager, 7-10 Project Managers, yet very few technical staff. All projects go on hold as the "tier 1" project takes all of the resources leaving. It's badly managed and frustrating. Programme Managers and Senior staff don't care - all they like doing is promoting themselves to high positions.
