    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    (1) Deep capabilities and visionary technology thinking across the wider Atos group outside of Consulting
    (2) Strong group companies such as Worldline / Bull - very useful capabilities to draw on
    (3) Deep public sector presence and capability
    (4) Strong European presence.

    Cons

    (1) Focused largely on IT project and program management despite the 'digital' labeling
    (2) Driven by traditional consulting metrics around utilization - focus on staff augmentation and the next 6 weeks - 6 months execution, rather than any vision of the future for clients.
    (3) Weak client management & sales processes especially in the private sector
    (4) Insular organization & culture

    Advice to Management

    Need to rethink what digital means, identify a clear roadmap for clients and present a strong case for being a partner of choice in that journey. Need urgently to get beyond IT consulting and IT relationships.

    Pros

    Good promotion opportunities and salary step ups early on, flexible hours, interesting engagements and a breadth of roles available

    Cons

    Lack of engagements at times, culture of hiring externally into roles where internal promotions could have been utilised

    Advice to Management

    Look to promote younger employees from the internal network first before hiring externally, general support for graduates is great and well structured.

    Pros

    Due to the smaller size your opportunity to network across all grades in the business exists immediately. Regardless of grade senior management always has time to discuss both work and non-work related matters.
    Monthly drinks socials in particular support this tight-knit community that develops.

    Again due to it's small size you are exposed to a large variety of projects early and often. While inhibiting the ability to specialise this does give younger consultants a thorough grounding across the business.

    The ability to call on "big Atos" for support for IT implementation, expertise and support can be a credit on projects.

    Cons

    For a technology company the kit provided is not as modern as can be hoped but this is improving.
    An over focus on public-sector can limit exposure to big private sector clients.
    Small size means that you can end up in roles which are not appropriate to your skill set due to resourcing constraints.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop private sector practice and focus on the strengths that Atos can deliver. Development of a core offering and cutting back on the attempt to a bit of everything will improvement recognition.

    I have been working at Atos Consulting full-time

    Pros

    UK Consulting operation is relatively small and it's easy to get close to the action. Although grades of seniority do exist, in practice the organisation is very flat. Great opportunities for more junior employees. Quite focused on consulting engagements related to tech changes so employees get exposure to latest tech thinking. Responsibility given to employees at all level. Good collaborative atmosphere and genuine meritocracy.

    Cons

    The larger Atos company is sometimes a drag i.e. the Consulting unit relies on other parts of the business as a delivery partner and they often don't move with the urgency one would hope for. For a Consultancy with a reputation for tech projects, in-house systems can be behind the curve.
