    I have been working at Atkins full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of graduates - young offices and good social elements Abundance of projects - movement between helps reduce boredom and broaden experience Relatively non pressured working environment

    Cons

    Pay is weak SNC take over changed company culture Promotions and bonus' based more on internal work than client delivery - therefore you were better on the bench getting face time with seniors than on client sit

    Advice to Management

    Better performance based incentives. Incentives leaned more towards delivery given productivity targets

    Positive Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Atkins for less than a year

    Pros

    Great working environment, friendly and helpful team, really good benefits (pay and holiday). Good experience and some say in where/what projects you work on.

    Cons

    Opportunities for training and development can be hard to find. There is sometimes not a lot of interesting work available, technical work can be hard to find. Some pressure to be 'productive' (working on projects) rather than spending time on training.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier to find opportunities around the business (currently it is difficult to find work outside of your team). Improve the opportunities for training and development, particularly for placement students/graduates.
