    I worked at A.T. Cross as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Company is going through a massive change and I was able to make a solid impact on the company as this change was occurring. Also gained a lot of technical and soft skill experience.

    Cons

    Archaic architecture and some people have worked at this company for over 20 years! Cubicle atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the company a freer / more open space. The company just feels a bit old.

    I worked at A.T. Cross full-time

    Pros

    I had one amazing manager that was brilliant and incredibly encouraging. But this manager was really unique within the orgnanization.

    Cons

    Fires people because they need to make the quarterly numbers. Create fear every time the new quarter is about to being.

    I have been working at A.T. Cross as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Extremely hands on and holistic view of the company since it has downsized quite a bit. Absolutely no monotony.

    Cons

    Archaic. The systems are old and the people using the systems have been doing their job for so long that they know everything and are not as willing to teach.

    Pros

    Friendly staff that were welcoming to interns.

    Cons

    Unpaid internship which can make the semester a bit tight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Structure the internship program so the interns stay busy and productive.

    I worked at A.T. Cross

    Pros

    The benefits package is incredible. Also, the majority of the people who work there are proud to be there and are nice people.

    Cons

    There are far too many senior level VP's and decisions across all departments move at a snails pace due to this. Also there is a serious lack of infomation sharing across departments creating unnecessary duplication of work in many instances.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise against having a top heavy organization. There are a few senior level managers/executives who are clearly there for decorative purposes and show up whenever they feel like and rely on those below them to do their job for them.
