Be careful working as a Contractor with Atos!

Operation Engineer (Former Employee)
Redmond, WA

I worked at Atos full-time for more than 3 years

ProsUnfortunately, I thought long and hard about the pros I saw during my year of working with Atos after they purchased the Siemens IT Solutions and Services group, and there is none. It is always nice to have a job in the economy, but the cons completely outweighed any pros.

ConsStarting at the top...salary was 10-15k under market norms, the benefits were the worst I had, there was no possible of internal promotion once you hit the top, and management was a complete let down

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Lower management is generally unsupported by upper management

Web Developer/Database Administrator (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at Atos

ProsThey HAD a contract with Seton...Providing my services to benefit Seton was my primary motivator. Atos Origin did however allow me the latitude to develop and improve the largely on my own they offered a self directed work environment.

ConsThere is a significant disconnect between the upper North American management team and the lower contract managers.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper Management needs to be more involved and supportive

Company has wildly different cultures in different offices.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Cincinnati, OH

I have been working at Atos

ProsCompared to other employers in the same region:
* Average Salary+ Good Benefits (in North America)
* Below Average Salary+Average benefits (in India)
* Excellent Salary + Good Benefits (in Europe)
* I got an opportunity to work for Olympics. Atos is a key sponsor of Olympics.

ConsIt is a European company which was GREAT 12 years ago. It is still a decent place to work - even now - in Europe. In North American offices, it lags way behind in competitiveness. In India, it is a loose collection of verticals operating in a variety of structures, though mostly on the outsourcing model. Even amongst NA offices, certain office like Cincinnati, Columbus are like family run businesses. In India, Pune and Mumbai are way better than Bangalore offices.

Disappointed

Project Manager (Former Employee)
Cincinnati, OH

I worked at Atos

ProsAs an international company, you would expect Atos to offer opportunities for transfers to other locations in the situation of layoffs etc, however little or no effort was made.

ConsUpper management concerned only about revenue, employee utilization and saving their own jobs at the expense of others.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn effective leadership.
