    I have been working at Atos full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work from home, good pay, willing to work with you

    Cons

    Promote strictly by the buddy system and the same applies for firing. While there they consistently fired all the best and most qualified people and kept people who had no business even being employed in IT. They also promoted people with absolutely no management experience or skills and kept them on despite the contributing nothing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of all the people promoted based on who they sucked up to and replace them with people who are qualified. Stop isolated good techs and then letting them go because you failed to give them work

    I have been working at Atos full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    There is a good work to life balance since they very rarely require working overtime. Great relationship and collaboration between colleagues.

    Cons

    There does not seem to opportunity for advancement within the organization. Seems that the management is more worried about getting the number ring than actually get the work done.

    Former Employee - Project Manager in Hightstown, NJ

    I worked at Atos as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Some of the people I met there were knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to work with. There was an option of working remotely, as a lot of people did.

    Cons

    They are contracted by Magraw Hill Ed. to separate them from the financial part of the business. With so many people working remotely, it was hard to coordinate activities and hold people accountable. Although paid hourly, they were long days, with little training, I was a sub-contractor, so that was a negative as well. I found out from my recruiter when my last day was going to be (2 days before the end), and no one from Atos said anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't bite off more than you can chew! This is a huge project and I don't believe they were properly prepared or staffed.

    I have been working at Atos full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I make good money and work from home 100%. The benefits are pretty good and I get a decent amount of paid time off. My manager is the type that will leave you alone so long as you are doing a good job.

    Cons

    I don't have a lot of contact from management, though that can also be a pro. It seems there is a decent amount of room for growth, so long as you pursue it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more bonuses based on feedback you solicit from the customer.

    I worked at Atos as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    I can not think of any.

    Cons

    Management is so caught up with what they are doing that they do not respond to their employees. I was let go because I voiced my opinion on how to improve support. There is no reasoning for compensation that they do not provide.

    Do not look here for a career. The pay is none existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with your employees, not against them.

    I have been working at Atos full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits, PTO are good, my salary was good because I came across from another company.

    Cons

    Salaries are generally below market value, expectation to do work long hours with minimum reward, too many priorities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have to stop and truly evaluate what is agreed to and the staffing levels. Understand the competitive nature of the business place, but if offshore won't take it, then maybe there is a reason.

    I have been working at Atos full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Being able to work remote and make my own hours within reason. Being challenged on a daily basis.

    Cons

    All management cares about is the money which leads to poor customer service and unhappy employees. They don't want to provide new equipment or assist in anyway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start caring about your employees future. They are a direct influence on the company and can either make you look really good or really bad.
