    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Atkins full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Lots of projects to work on

    Cons

    - below average pay with next to no opportunity for paid overtime even when agreed - like a playground. Hire mostly graduates and placement students (cheaper than experienced people). Quite a negative environment - micromanaged. Every 30 minutes having to give update to manager - no career progression unless you've been with the company years - no appreciation for hard work

    Advice to Management

    Training for management on how to at least appreciate their staff. Hire people with experience who don't just want to have a social.
