    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 staff themselves.
