    Orthodox management style in Railway business... due to the fact senior management is from Govt. service background Nepotism ( special treatment to some employees who are in relation to higher management)

    I worked at Atkins

    Pros

    Exposure to large scale projects with challenging Clients

    Cons

    Poor senior management and leadership team especially in engineering dept who do not value or practise the company leadership skills. Total bureaucracy with no bond between management and staff. No flexible hours nor work life balance. Stress based environment with least concern for staff well being as the leadership levels do not connect or relate to staff. No growth for senior enginneers. Purely process based environment

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

    Pros

    Variety of projects to work on. Career progression is decent for a large organisation. Flexible benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Work/life balance isn't as good as the company claims, not since the takeover by SNC-Lavalin. This is a particular problem because Atkins selling point vis-a-vis their competitors has always been that that the work/life balance is superior, with the trade-off being a lower salary than the likes of other engineering consultancies. However since the takeover work/life balance has got progressively worse, and in addition SNC are looking to make further cost cutbacks. I would add there have been a raft of changes at Senior Management and Director levels the past year, and as such I increasingly feel the senior management are disconnected from the employees on the ground.

    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 - but I guess it's the same at other consultancies too. - The variety of work mostly applies to graduates who are 'cheap' in regards of billable time. Seniors can chug on with whatever they get assigned on. - Very poor staff retention. In my last half year with the company, at least half of the senior/principal consultants I worked with from other disciplines have left Atkins. Speaks volumes. - Team leaders are mainly appointed based on seniority and not experience, therefore interaction/reliability on your line manager can be poor. - Internal 'competition' with other departments for work. No team strategy for technical or other improvements.
