    Pros

    Good employees...thats about it. Food in the lunchroom from different local businesses was nice.

    Cons

    Lackluster pay. Too many middle managers. Too many people who have the same job title. Part time/contractor employees working 2x or more than full time employees. Crooked in general. CEO is so far removed from the company's day to day. She has no clue what happens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I spoke with the now President of Service delivery. He wanted me to stay in the company because he saw me going through the same issues as him. Bad move.

    Pros

    Laid back work culture. Atos is a company with a lot of business knowledge in a few domains across Europe. This allows people to work in different projects ranging from healthcare ,transportation to payment gateway facilities. As a result global methods apply to all and high standard of delivery is expected. Working and dealing with with professional teams from different countries is a plus.

    Cons

    Individual development is stunted. Resources for projects are not choosen in terms of their skills. Infact it was random. Complex processes spoil the charm of working in a company that follows a global set of rules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire management which is going to lay the empasis on removing the clutter policiies and identify the skill set of the employees to get the right work output.

    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

    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 (less than an 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.
