Working at Atheneum is a great opportunity to really prove yourself as an employee. It can be competitive but there's no cap to the bonus you can earn so it's worth it.

The employees and management are friendly. Even though we work in teams, it's a lot of independent work.


Casual work environment and 21 paid vacation days.
Pros
Monthly Events, Breakfast treats, monthly lunches

No es un buen lugar para trabajar. Es un ambiente estresante con muy pocos beneficios. No lograrás aprender nada, ya que es un trabajo muy facil de hacer.

El ambiente y cultura de laboral la definiría como tóxica, mucho gossip y poco compañerismo. Alta prepotencia y falta de educación.


Por ningun motivo recomiendo trabajar acá.

The workplace culture is really nice and most people are friendly. The nature of the job depends on which team you are assigned to. Management plays favorites and will help out those they like and give difficult work to those they do not like. It is a sales type job but you are no actually selling anything you are setting up calls. The company has some unethical practices when it comes to compensating experts that have been in consultations sometimes forgetting to pay them or having an error with payment and not making sure it went through.

Atheneum is not a nice place to work at all. During the job interview, they show you this opportunity as an important job with high valuable tasks, but the truth is that you will end doing a job similar to a call center operator. A job that could be easily replaced with a macro or an algorithm (yes, believe it!). You have to conduct too many calls and send emails as a machine to be considered "productive", with no time to rest or learn anything new. That's the only thing that you will do during a normal day. There is no consulting or research work, don't believe them! Is more similar to a seller. Except if you can obtain a higher role with client-facing.

The office is a small room. There are too many people in a tiny place, computers are too old, and it is really too loud. There is no privacy at all. Enclosed space. Issues hearing, when all the chairs are full. Also, they will ask you to use your own social networks (like WhatsApp, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.), and even your cellphone for job purposes, while at the same time ban you to use it for personal use (yes, your own phone!). Also, they will ask you nicely to monitor the expert interviews on times outside normal working hours, very late or early morning. So basically, you will never disconnect from work.


Account managers aren't real managers. While some other members do a proper job, the account managers will read magazines, newspapers, check social networks, call their couples and waste time. But they will threaten you in front of all if you take a few minutes to relax. They have very arrogant manners to treat others,

It is a great company that has a lot of opportunities to grow on a career and develop several skills. It is a KPI driven company but has a good company culture.

La empresa se encuentra en crecimiento, por lo que aún definen muchas cosas. Dan oportunidades basados en habilidades blandas y no en experiencia, lo que crea un ambiente bastante interesante. No hay carreras deinidas luego de dos o tres posiciones.
Pros
Posibilidades de expandir red laboral
Cons
Empresa en desarrollo, con muchos detalles.

Pros
Colleagues are usually really cool people from all over the world. They pay is not too bad. Somehow, there is room for professional growth, albeit limited. The last bonus system I saw can get you high rewards.


Cons

The Analyst work is stupid. It’s 0 stimulating, and sometimes you feel like you're working in a call center. It’s hard to expect more from an entry-level job, but it's especially bad because they give you high expectations about what you'll be doing, only for you to get there and realize how dumb the work is. This is part of what causes an exceptionally rapid turnover rate of employees (60% last only 2-3 months). People are lied to during the phone interview about the work dynamic and when they realize it's not what they were promised, they leave quite upset. Perhaps the worst part about working at Atheneum is that they don't pay the experts, or if they do, it's not in a timely fashion. The experts get angry and lash out at the Analyst/Associate with their complaints, and there is really nothing the Analyst/Associate can do to accelerate the payment. It makes the employees feel like liars and like they are scamming esteemed professionals (because they unwillingly are). Lastly, when I was there the management was really terrible and demeaning to employees. The kind of people who let their personal stress affect how they treat others.

Pros – Friendly, welcoming team - Atheneum is a big family
Relaxed atmopshere

Attracting some of the best graduates from top universities on an international scale

People from many nationalities - very culturally diverse and accepting of all cultures and traditions

Hard-work valued

Promote from within

As a new company you can suggest changes and see them implemented - the management take great care to listen to their employees and work to meet their requests


Cons – No cons so far in my time at Atheneum - I feel very fortunate to be working for such an exciting company. You can really see that it is going places and it is great to feel a part of it


Advice to Senior Management – You are doing a great job at working with your employees and your invaluable time and experience is much appreciated

I worked at Atheneum Partners full-time for more than a year

Pros – - Strong, international team with a demanding but fun & supportive environment

- Fast growing company with a lot of opportunities for professional development and also for career progression

- Huge diversity of projects in terms of industry, geography etc On daily basis you work on multiple topics eg car manufacturing in the US, fishing farms in Indonesia or wound care in Russia


Cons – - In such a fast paste company even more communication should happen to make sure everybody really understands where the company is heading


Advice to Senior Management – Current changes are heading into the right direction e.g. more structure company-wide communication, new office with a way more professioanl infrastrucutre and nicer set up or salary increases, but it's not the end of the path

The typical day is long and tireing, since its a start up. I have learned lot of new skills in this job. Specifically, learned about the best to get an expert on phone and convince him for the project. I learned how to manage multiple projects at the same time. I was able to manage 8 projects at the same time. The job is very challenging, so I enjoyed very much. The job is good but only hard part is that company do not have innovation culture.
All in all it was a nice experience to add some more skills to my resume.
