    I worked at Atkins full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Worldwide company with great opportunities especially since SNC lavalin acquisition opening up more avenues. Great place for graduates. Has great flexible benefits where you can buy and sell leave.

    Cons

    Departments seem to merge, change names for very little benefit. A lot of the internal IT work, CAD work is moving to India, so not great career prospects

    Advice to Management

    UK IT staff see very little career progression, need to get the blend of UK / offshore resource correct and show there is career progression for UK it staff as morale is low
