    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Atkins full-time

    Pros

    Some interesting projects to be involved in
    Good use of technology

    Cons

    The culture should be open and inclusive, which it's not. Only those who are 'senior' have flexibility as they are deemed to be trusted, which is crazy. How does this make your staff feel? How demotivating.
    In some parts of the business salary is below market rate.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example
