    I have been working at Atkins full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It may be the only job you can get.

    Cons

    Over the years the amount of long term strategic thinking from management has steadily declined. This include investment in staff training and conpany tools which has steadily declined over the years. The senior management in my sector are incapable of understanding the workings of the business on the ground. It is clear that short term numbers are king, and there is no benefit to be had from being staff here rather than a contractor. There are still some mugs proclaiming Atkins one of the top 10 employers in the Times but this feels like, and was, an incredibly long time ago.
