Atlantis consulting has a great atmosphere, and has the potential to be a great place to work. As a developer, we had access to rent the company xbox, the company wii, and also were given a laptop to take home with us as part of the job. The team in which I worked was excellent, and the lack of pay was somewhat made up for by bi-weekly company lunches and other small perks like the soda machine in the break room.
Pay was WAY below industry standards. Promised raises never come, so be happy with the free lunches. There is no development process, so planning is usually ignored. As a result everything gets rushed through, bugs are found, and then the rest of the company is upset with the developers for releasing buggy software. Working weekends, weeknights (on a whim) is common place, and your personal life is never enough of an excuse to miss work. Usually work was also interrupted by meetings instead of allowing us to work. Micromanaging also disrupted the work flow.
Advice to Management
if you insist on working your employees to death, pay them accordingly. If you are unable to pay the going rate for a developer, please do not promise raises.
