    I have been working at Atkins full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    As a graduate you are given responsibility well beyond that of any other graduate in different firms - you are exposed to fully completing tasks on your own very early on. The people you work with in the company are great and the atmosphere OUTSIDE of project work is brilliant.

    Cons

    Sink or swim mentality - you get chucked into the deep end with almost no support There is no structure to the graduate programme - you remain a graduate until you get chartered Pay is poor Not much room for progression - external hires are valued more than internal promotions.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at Atkins full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture and people. Flexible working hours. Positive work/life balance you wouldn't get at other consultancies.

    Cons

    Pay is below average. Demand for project work is not currently aligned with ambitious growth strategy, meaning it is difficult to make impact when you are low level.

    I have been working at Atkins full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Variety of projects to work on. Career progression is decent for a large organisation. Flexible benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Work/life balance isn't as good as the company claims, not since the takeover by SNC-Lavalin. This is a particular problem because Atkins selling point vis-a-vis their competitors has always been that that the work/life balance is superior, with the trade-off being a lower salary than the likes of other engineering consultancies. However since the takeover work/life balance has got progressively worse, and in addition...

    Advice to Management

    Reign in the poor reporting culture and encourage employees to report the actual hours they work rather than the silly rules of never reporting more than 37.5.
