    I have been working at Atos Origin UK full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    expanding company large but still innovative and dynamic, relatively to its size tries to look after its employees (training, Great Place to Work initiative, tries to do redeployment and re-skilling over straight redundancies)

    Cons

    under pressure to reduce costs, like other big IT companies

    Advice to Management

    rethink the way you appraise employees, give emphasis to actual individual skills and not to corporate objectives

    I worked at Atos Origin UK full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The project I worked on had a really great team and I learned a lot. The subject matter was also extremely interesting.

    Cons

    The corporate machine was non existent and with that no bonus, poor recognition for our team's work and generally no support. The higher management was cowardly and ineffective.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of it! Bring in some fresh blood with new ideas.

    I have been working at Atos Origin UK part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent wage, which rises in 3rd month, again in 6th month and further after either 1 year or 18 months. Friendly and supportive colleagues, team leaders and management. A flexible work/life balance, all requests are considered, TL's and management happy to help if any problems arise. Shift work, so can be suitable for students and others who require shifts at various hours.

    Cons

    Other than minor issues with systems procedures (nothing can be 100% perfect), nothing negative to say.

    Advice to Management

    I think if some system procedures and the way things were done were altered slightly, it would make life easier for staff and customer. But even then, the problems which do occur are not all that much of a hinderence overall. Keep up the good attitude and supportiveness of tea leaders and managers... it's great when they are positive.

    I worked at Atos Origin UK full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Varied projects with good employee benefits

    Cons

    Not interested in providing quality products for their customers in my experience. More interested in making money from the customers Very 'political' place Had no contact from management during my notice period, was 'left to rot' until I left

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to quality rather than having pound symbols in your eyes. Give more time to individuals.
