    I worked at Atkins full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Variety of projects (also see cons), nice people to work with who appreciate your contribution and going the extra mile. - Some of the benefits are quite good - but often matched at the same level as other consultancies: buy/sell extra holidays, BUPA, gym membership, etc. - Not sure the recent merge with SNC-Lavalin will change anything.

    Cons

    - Too much red tape, senior management seems to be detached from the rest of the company. - London office amenities are terrible - often crowded, nowhere to sit. Useless hot-desk system as regulars tend to frequent the same spot every day. Heating/cooling is sub-par, we had 2 weeks without heating in one wing during the worst of the winter in 2016... - Focus on billable hours/productivity...

    Advice to Management

    - Pull your head out of the sand. - Change work distribution based on experience, not costs. - Listen to your staff, and stop ignoring suggestions for improvement and rebuff them with lip-service. - Some teams have time and budget for self/team-development, why not all? - Stop sending out useless 'anonym'* company surveys that will give you whatever results you want to get out of it. Talk to your people regularly...

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Atkins part-time

    Pros

    Flexible working, well educated and intellectually stimulating colleagues

    Cons

    Senior management's fondness for reorganising / promoting / demoting staff with no clear objective or measurable outcomes has resulted in low staff morale and an appallingly high turnover. Clients have little confidence in senior management so do not place any larger (economically viable) packages of work, preferring to direct and manage...

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs a good shake up and some fresh blood - stale and self satisfied.
