    I worked at Atkins full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Big company with an impressive portfolio of clients and projects and some genuinely expert specialists.

    Cons

    The epitome of a big faceless organisation - poor communications between business units and a terrible internal culture of 'little empires' at middle management level with almost constant infighting and bickering over cost allocations. Atkins were utterly ruthless and emotionless with respect to redundancies, getting rid of staff with 20+ years of continuous service at a whim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Centralise teams within single business streams - it is ludicrous to have, for example, environmental specialists and geotechnical specialists placed within separate business units. These, together with small localised teams sharing the same disciplines (left over from the days of WS Atkins regional businesses) need to come under a single unit with one management structure.
