Nice people, good management of people. Good opportunities if you chase them. Good reputation with clients and other competitors.


Limited opportunities to move between departments due to their nature as separate business units. Different departments can be very different so reviews will not always be applicable.

    A poorly managed firm that hasn't come to grips with the fact it was acquired

    I have been working at Atkins


    Good office network. Many talenet and dedicated people, especially at the entry and mid-levels. Flexible work environment.


    Low pay except for senior management. Atkins North America is the product of the acquisition of PBSJ by UK-based Atkins in 2010. Yet most former PBSJ senior management don't act like anything has changed. Also, lots of political maneuvering by senior managers to protect their turf. A highly "silo-ed" environment with very little collaboration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to reorganize. Break down barriers between divisions and regions. Ongoing layoffs hurt morale. Over-emphasis on meeting weekly producitivty numbers diminishes marketing. "Atkins" is a new brand in the US so it needs to think like a start-up.
