Senior Personal Assistant in London SW, Greater London
Fast pace yet friendly work culture.
Fast pace and demanding work culture company. I wasn't impressed with the person who trained me, she wasn't organised, didn't have a proper training schedule. She found it difficult to explain her work, expected others to show me different areas of the role because she couldn't be bothered.However other colleagues were supportive and I learned a lot of new systems.

SNC have changed Atkins
Atkins used to be a great place to work. The takeover by SNC has led to some fundamental changes. While investment in IT services and tech support for staff has improved, senior management approach and performance has declined, with 'Americanisms' (in terms of management approaches) creeping into the business. Evidence of this, can be seen with the SNC board, being happy to pay themselves multi-million £ bonus', and shareholder dividends, while staff were being asked to take 10-20% pay cuts.
They are very happy to say the business is doing well, even if it isn't, which means there is no trust of senior leadership. That or internal politics in muddying the messaging.
It could be a good place to work, but be careful of the new management being introduced by the SNC Lavalin side of the business.
Graphic Designer in Epsom
Varied and interesting work
Worked within a great team, lots of collaboration. The new office in Epsom is lovely, a great workspace. The main downside for me was that there were frequent IT network issues, which was extremely frustrating.
