    I worked at Atlona full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are a handful of truly genuine and trustworthy people that want to do great work and put in the effort to help the company figure itself out, grow and be successful.

    Cons

    There are many people in the company firmly entrenched in their ways, unwilling to change, are dishonest and cannot be trusted even when asked to be straightforward, including its ownership. The company seems to be unwilling to learn its lessons and evolve, be honest with employees and doesn't have a clear plan and path to growth. If you interview, be sure to ask what their plans are to sustain itself, let alone grow its business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management and owner reputation is one of distrust, lack of clarity, deferring decisions, disconnection from staff and not knowing how and/or are unwilling to move the business forward. Be honest with yourselves as well as your employees. Create a work environment staff genuinely want to come to work, are motivated and can succeed in and you might have a chance of regaining some trust and improving morale beyond throwing occasional parties.

    Pros

    If you need a job and your unemployment has run out and you don't qualify for public assistance . . . this may be the place for you.

    Cons

    Weak, me too product line, poor communication, near zero management competency, a narrow subcontract (ODM) manufacturing strategy, questionable quality and a complete lack of ethics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow some ethics.

    Pros

    Chaotic, fast paced environment. Good group of employees overall.

    Cons

    Extremely inexperienced owners (read: you don't know what you don't know)
    Morale level of a funeral home
    Lack of innovation/product availability

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your management staff! When you've gone out of your way to hire experienced folks to help guide you through a growth period you should really listen to them. Don't just listen to new folks for 90 days then revert back to the same broken methods of management that you had before. You are running a multi-million dollar business, it's okay to ask for help. Your customers and employees are the life blood of your organization. Start treating them like assets instead of afterthoughts.

    Pros

    Lots of challenges and chaos...

    Cons

    Young Owners without a strong business sense, benefit package is not ideal, and salary will be underpaid to market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees and value them therefore you can keep them and continue sustaining and growing the company. Also, look into better benefit packages.

    I have been working at Atlona

    Pros

    most employees are nice fun people

    Cons

    Pay plan is horrible. very underpaid. Benefits are OK, but only 7 company holidays, what a joke! Major disconnect from SR management with rest of the company. Many employees very unhappy. Lots of people leaving company

    Keep changing internal structure, but keep putting things off and don't keep the actual salespeople in the loop. New products need to be ready for market before announcing them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire someone experienced to run the company, someone who values your employees. Don't forget that your employees are your biggest asset. Don't take them for granted
