    Pros

    You are always learning healthy ways too improve the world that we live in & teaching others this responsibility.

    Cons

    Hard work learning new products that will be environmentally better. Convincing others to do the right thing is hard.

    Advice to Management

    There's always a lot of follow up and one needs to always be knowledgeable on all levels in order to be effective. You better know your products.

  2. Bad culture.

    Pros

    * Placement was quick.
    * They stay out of your way and let you work for the client.
    * Renewal, or next contract, usually flowed easily, though getting solid information was difficult. To be fair, that may have been the client's issue rather than Atlas.

    Cons

    * No paid time off for contractors.
    * Benefits package was much too expensive for what you received.
    * Training? What training?
    * Raises? What raises?

    Others here nailed it. You are glorified temp. Ask about getting anything more, and you'll find your contract might not be extended.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people! Atlas made $$ every hour that I made $$ for years. There was no career advice, only two half-days of training (a one-shot deal). Even the annual xmas gatherings dried up.

    Pros

    Almost anyone can get a job here. Low stress environment

    Cons

    nervous management, little to no chance of promotions, severely underpaid compared to national average (17$ P/hr) compared to 65K national avg. Everyone is a contractor. If you get fired someone will be in your seat the next day. Turn over rate is unheard of. Little value in their employees. Just another worker bee. Give you specific work to justify your 17$ an hour but nothing more, however move you around alot to cross train you so you could technically have been paid at 65k a year.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. # of bodies arent everything. Contractors don't care about the company like real employees do.

    I worked at Atlas

    Pros

    Quick placement, but after that, you are on your own.

    Cons

    Second day on the job, I realized the recruiter had no idea what the position I was recruited for entailed. After that initial contact, no help from atlas whatsoever on anything! Worst part is, along with the company that they recruited for, they found a loophole where they kept you as a contractor for years! No benefits, no sick days, no time off, nothing for years and years. They cross train you on everything at that company, but then keep you at the same pay rate. It paid the bills, but sometimes even that was not worth the stress of it all. Biggest turn over rate I ever encountered!

    Advice to Management

    In today's world, technology makes it very easier to expose unhealthy and unrewarding work environments. Please realize that you are dealing with people and not animals. If it weren't for them, you would not be in business. Listen to the complaints of your consultants. Something is clearly wrong if more than one person is saying the same thing.

    Pros

    The interview process and placement were handled well and I was placed in a position very quickly.

    Cons

    The job was a bit different than what was discussed with the recruiter. Once I started the job, I never again heard from my recruiter. None of my calls or emails were returned. Work conditions were horrible in the department I worked in and Atlas did nothing about it. 99% of the ~40 contractors were unhappy working for Atlas.

    Advice to Management

    None

  9. A great place to work!

    Pros

    Atlas has an innovative approach to managing its internal employees and consultants. Everyone is treated with respect and dignity, and Atlas' flexibility allows for the company to create unique ways to cater to employees' needs. I have worked for Atlas for eleven years and have felt like part of the team since day one. The opportunities to grow and further my career at Atlas have been many, and I appreciate the chance to be part of a dynamic team.

    Cons

    The office space is restrictive for a company that is growing and will continue to grow. However, I know that ownership is addressing more professional office space, and we will be relocating soon.

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging the recruiting model and stay flexible to allow for navigation of changing market conditions.

    Pros

    Really no pros here. Nothing to say here.

    Cons

    Atlas Data is not a real consulting firm. More like a glorified temp agency. Wait until you see their corporate office. The office was dirty. Not a professional organization. No methodology or structure regarding how they manage their engagements.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Quick placement. They leave you alone to do the job with the company where you are placed and don't offer much help after that.

    Cons

    There really isn't any interaction with them after being placed. They offered some training programs which was nice. Professional attitude.
