    Pros

    Management allows technical members to do their job. Work is collaborative and everyone seems to have the same goal, to make an outstanding product that pleases our customers. The environment is very multi-cultural with lots of smart and interesting people. I truly love coming to work every day.

    There is just a lot to do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing a great job.

    Pros

    There are some very talented people working at this company. The company is doing well and growing, and the work is interesting.

    Cons

    The benefits and pay are mediocre. Many people who have been performing well for years have not received any promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to outgrow its startup mentality where the top executives retain authority and control over everything and become bottlenecks as a result.

    I have been working at Atypon Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have been with Atypon Systems for over 6 years. The company has established the Literatum platform as the platform of choice for scholarly publishers.
    The best thing about working at Aypon is the fact that it offers both stability and the opportunity to make a large impact.
    The company has a wide range of diverse nationalities with a strong team spirit.

    Cons

    The company's main offering is SaaS - as such there are difficult operational challenges and developers can't lose sight o that.

    Advice to Management

    Would be nice to sponsor a "bring kids to work" day at least once every 3 months.

    I worked at Atypon Systems full-time

    Pros

    Great customers. Atypon dominates its niche market at the moment. Mostly very competent personnel among the general staff.

    Cons

    Senior management are mercurial. They lack the ability to effectively articulate or execute strategy with any consistency. They are penurious to a fault. They have no demonstrated interest in or basic understanding of investing in their employees and fostering a positive work culture, and how this might benefit the company. As a result the internal work environment can be toxic at times.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees; get a grip on strategy.

    I worked at Atypon Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive product suite, strong use of technology, technically able workforce, strong market recognition.

    Cons

    Poor management structure, little training or support for new joiners, little to no support from line management or senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Look after your new joiners. Ensure they feel supported by their line manager and not 'out on their own'.

    I worked at Atypon Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Flexible working hours
    - Leader in the scientific publishing domain and very stable financially.

    Cons

    - Not a place to gain any useful experience.
    - Too much micro-management, and managers prefer wasting employees time with status meetings and tracking sheets rather than using Jira and the tools available.
    - Upper management behavior is very condescending when dealing with employees and hearing their suggestions
    - A lot of legacy code and technical debt that is continually growing due to bad practices and quick and dirty solutions being the norm rather than the exception.

    Advice to Management

    Less micromanagement, Listen to your employees

    Pros

    Good env. with flexible working hours

    Cons

    Some employees are taken for granted the all and always right employees, and the company depends on 4 to 6 keys persons.

    Advice to Management

    You have to put your trust on the new employees and do some balancing between the components on the company.
