Overall great people to work with. It's very possible to work you're 40 hours and no overtime. Wonderful benefits: this is why people stay. They pay your healthcare premiums if you have an HSA and contribute to your account each pay. 401k is a 5% match that vest right away. Tuition reimbursement doesn't create a contract.
It's a very split company. You have old Atlas and new Atlas. Old Atlas believes if its not broke don't fix it (thus AS400). New Atlas wants more efficient processes. It's a constant struggle between them. As far as accounting is concerned, the departments aren't good at helping one another out. Its been rough for them: 4 different controllers in less than 2 years along with 2 restructurings, a round of layoffs.
Advice to Management
Listen to your employees. How can management address issues when half of them don't want to acknowledge them? The Employee Engagement Committee should function as a support for employees and not as a party planning committee.
I worked at Atlas Energy Resources full-time
Excellent benefits and severance packages.
A Managed Limited Partnership with no leadership. The leadership running this company is comprised up of bankers and New York businessmen, not Oil & Gas Professionals. They know how to move and manage money, but due to the nature of the tax shelter side of the business, funds are incredibly mismanaged. Atlas receives funding from people who are avoiding paying taxes, they have time constraints to spend the money within allotted IRS guidelines and therefore spend money drilling assets they do not fully understand geologically and operationally. Millions of dollars are drained into sub-par basins, i.e. the Marble Falls and Mississippi Lime basin, with little to no thought on operational costs and expenses.
Advice to Management
The president of a company should not be making decisions on deals worth less than $10,000. He tries to control micro manage down to the cent and therefore cannot manage the company on a large scale. The fact that he tries to control the employee coffee and refreshments shows that he is not someone who has the mindset to manage a multi-million-dollar Oil & Gas MLP.
There a few top-notch people still employed. They were great to work with. If the industry was better I can guarantee you that 80 percent of the employees would jump ship.
Several new people have joined the company in the past year and they would throw their own mothers under the bus if they thought it would make them look good to upper management. Beginning in August of 2015 morale plummeted and a new manager made it their duty to "whip the group into shape". The leadership is "my way or the highway" type and if you don't praise management or gossip negatively about your colleagues lack of competence you will not be happy working in that office. But, if personal politics is your game and you enjoy thinking that you are the smartest person in the room, then by all means this is the company for you.

The company is full of extremely smart people who are forward thinking, encourage growth and development, and are extremely passionate about their work. This makes for a dynamic, entrepreneurial, and exciting work experience from which to learn and challenge yourself.
While I learned a lot while I was there, I felt a bit underutilized.
