I worked at Atos full-time (More than 10 years)
Atos is always working on projects involving the cutting edge of IT Technology. Globally, Atos is poised to be a leader in many upcoming technologies, including automation and scientific computing.
As is the case with many large and LEAN organizations, resources are sometimes spread across many projects. More resources, even if temporary, would help Atos achieve their goals easier.
Advice to Management
While it is true that OPEX is expensive, investing in more resources would help shorten the service time to market, and will allow you to offer more robust and "fresh" offerings.
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.
