I have been working at Atkins full-time (Less than a year)
Provides great training opportunities, good management, one of the top engineering consulting firms in the world, availability to work in multiple locations and projects if interested.
Expensive health insurance, low contribution to 401k, no other cons to speak about. It depends on the department you work.
Advice to Management
Lower cost of Healthcare
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Atkins (Atlanta, GA).
The hiring process was a stringent one. There were many steps to becoming employed. A two phase group interaction session. A 3 person panel interview and a skills test.
