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

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.

    I worked at Atkins full-time (More than a year)

    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 Management

    Speak to your employees to gain a real picture of what working for Atkins is actually like.

    I worked at Atkins full-time

    Pros

    Atkins has a good name for your CV
    Work/life balance is good

    Cons

    Low pay
    No progression opportunity
    too much red tape
    too many middle management
    single point of failures
    arrogant staff

    Advice to Management

    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.
