    I have been working at Atypon Systems full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    Cons

    There is just a lot to do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing a great job.

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

    Pros

    Very competent employees. A few very amazing gems that are employed by this company, and they [Atypon] are lucky to have them, and should recognize that fact. Most of the employees here are very nice, definitely intelligent and all very good at their jobs. Upper management though, is another story.

    Cons

    First, if you are of Grecian decent, WITH a PHD in your study, you should definitely apply here. They treat you like family--but of course, that comes with the good and the bad. If you are not Greek, and/or hold but a humble bachelor's degree, just keep moving unless you have extremely thick skin for condescension and belittlement of your character, education and goals.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with the respect they deserve. I agree with the other review when they said you should treat them like they are the ones making you money. Because they are.

    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.

    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.

    Amazing employer amidst economic chaos in Greece. Great project range and high level of skill and competence.
