    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    As a graduate you are given responsibility well beyond that of any other graduate in different firms - you are exposed to fully completing tasks on your own very early on. The people you work with in the company are great and the atmosphere OUTSIDE of project work is brilliant.

    Cons

    Sink or swim mentality - you get chucked into the deep end with almost no support There is no structure to the graduate programme - you remain a graduate until you get chartered Pay is poor Not much room for progression - external hires are valued more than internal promotions.
