DCS Programmer/I&C Engineer (Current Employee) –  Aiken, SCJune 14, 2016
I've only been with Atkins for a few months now as they bought my former employer Energy Solutions. From what I can tell they are an honest company and seem to have a good reputation world wide. Benefits are comparable to other companies I've worked for.

Farm Company
Archaeologist Field Tech/Crew Chief (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXDecember 2, 2015
Atkins is a farm consulting company. If you are a recent graduate or you are looking for experience, then Atkins can help provide that experience. However, I would recommend leaving this company as quickly as possible once you have a few years of experience. The pay and benefits are awful and management is horrible. There is no room for advancement and very little respect is shown for those at a lower experience level.
Pros
Work experience
Cons

Bad working conditions. Worth it if your trying to make some quick money.
Traffic Control Operator I (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAOctober 17, 2015
Horrible work environment. The high turnover rate is due to very poor management. Management doesn't care about the workers. Underpaid and very stressful and toxic environment. I have never seen so many different people leave a job in such a short period of time. No opportunity for advancement. So many flaws, just wished the State of Georgia saw the type of contractor they had operating their facility.
Pros
Paid time off
Cons
Micromanagement, Unorganized management, Benefits promised are unfulfilled, Stressful work environment, for the amount of work pay isn't fair.

Atkins Good mid-sized engineering firm.
Senior Analyst - Corporate CAD Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLSeptember 17, 2015
Pretty good compensation, serious company. I worked with a good group of people.. My direct management was not great, no leadership, the manager was suspicious if employees were discussing work, or projects, because he was insecure in his knowledge of his job and a poor manager. He made it miserable for us, until the company finally realized the issue and terminated him.

Other than that, they tried to take care of their employees and paid average. I do not really know how Atkins is as a company since much of the upper management has changed since I was there.

innovative and forward thinking
Telecommunications Manager (Current Employee) –  Miami, FLSeptember 3, 2015
Atkins is a highly respected, global Engineering Consultancy, with every Engineering discipline offered to clients.

Atkins is a very large , global firm with a vast number of opportunities available to job seekers and employees alike.

The culture is forward thinking, fast moving, future focused with sustainability at it's core.

The working environment is fast paced and demanding with innovation at it's motivating factor. It can be challenging to be on the "bleeding-edge" of technology all of the time. However, a finer IT Department Staff and Managers could not be asked for. They are a great group, smart, energetic and engaging.

It's a great place to work!
Pros
Opportunity, latest and greatest technology
Cons
constant change can be difficult to adjust to

horrible place
Administrative (Former Employee) –  texasSeptember 2, 2015
Would not recommend this company to anyone. Upper management isn't concerned about the employees. Most of the long time employees were laid off and the ones that weren't let go left on their own. Total dysfunction throughout the company.
Pros
none

Buyout
Sr. Principal (Former Employee) –  Moss Point, MSJune 13, 2015
Atkins can not be measured by the same mistakes of ABB concerning HOE except not doing the proper investigation of company history. Investments of this magnitude require much more than speculation based upon dinner talks. The world has too many want a be lap dogs that lack vision and creativeness. Companies need at least one or two visionaries to help keep the edge. The problem is a company is made of teams of individuals, each with strong and weak talents not solo acts. Without them we only copy, paste and lie to our selfs in the mirror of achievement. Beware the solo of copy.
Pros
Employees individual achievement abilities.
Cons
Lack of management communication and interface
