Productive

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Useful and productive experience overall. Variety of projects. But very difficult to get into different projects because they need specific skills. Less growth possibility.

Not a fun place to work

Very unfriendly place to work. A very hostile atmosphere. I felt very uncomfortable working there. It is probably the worst job I have ever had. I do not want to blame the company.

Good non-salary benefits and office environment, but intermittent workload

A good large company with excellent continued professional development opportunities (to achieve CEng status). Consultancy work can be intermittent, especially for graduates.

Pros

Continued Professional Development scheme, good office environment, flexi-time, ability to purchase/sell annual leave

Cons

Graduate work can be slow, consultancy based work intermittent.

Great people, relaxed culture

Great group of people in the office, working on large programmes of work for a major client. Key learning outcomes have been working on large multidisciplinary Although I have really enjoyed the work I have done while at the Derby office, the range of projects on offer were all of a similar nature and I was wary of getting pigeon-holed at such an early stage in my career. Having worked with a few project managers whilst in the Derby office, there are varying levels of project management expertise and the responsibilities of project managers were not always well defined leaving graduate engineers such as myself to pick up the pieces. The best part of the job is the degree of autonomy granted by project managers and technical leads, often I was in charge of liaising between different members of Atkins and the client organisation.

Pros

Flexible working hours, degree of autonomy, early responsibility, good group of colleagues

Cons

Lack of focus on delivery, ineffective management, lack of training, unclear progression route, variety of projects

Driven workplace, excellent staff conditions, very business orientated

Atkins is a unique Engineering company to work for. As a consultancy, your life is filled with a variety of projects, locations and staff to work with. No 2 months are the same, and there's always a new challenge to look forwards to.
