I have been working at Atos full-time (More than 3 years)
Takes tech seriously, not just a contracting company. (see x86 Bull servers)
No continuing ed or certifications or tution reimbursement.
Advice to Management
Average pay for average people is unimpressive at best. Develop a talent retention strategy.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Atos (Redmond, WA).
Very relaxed interview with very general questions. It's a VERY entry level position, so the interview is mainly to see if you suck as a person or not. They primarily wanted to know if it was a culture/personality fit for the company.
