I worked at Atkins full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Plenty of avenues to shape up your ideas & views.

Cons

Its grown so big that the smaller jobs too are viewed with the retrorespective of any Mega projects. To focus in project within the project....! Should always maintain edge over the Contractor & Should not be Client or Contractor driven project.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Technical development should be constantly focussed keeping abreast with the new developments rather than getting new recruits on short terms. Instead some areas should be outsourced & parallel develop our own team BOH.

    I have been working at Atkins full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's a job. Thing's are pretty good and i've had an opportunity to get a fairly broad range of experience.

    Cons

    When things are slow, getting laid off is always on the mind. Although, thats the nature of civil engineer.

    I can always use a raise!

    I have been working at Atkins full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits structures; good projects; good professional development and recogntion programs. Schedule and benefit flexibility. Wide range of available projects; lots of very talented peoepel. I've worked at other firms with very dysfunctional organizations; the staff I work with at Atkins are very professional.

    Cons

    With the tight market, upper management treats staff- across the board- as contract employees with benefits, If you're on a long term project and it ends, have your resume ready

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more honestly with employees
