    I worked at AMTI full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Because I worked at the client site, I never interacted with any of my direct AMTI management. That can be a blessing and a curse. Hands off management. I worked as a sub contractor to a bigger government contractor who I reported to directly.

    Cons

    Because I worked at the client site, I never interacted with any of my direct AMTI management. That can be a blessing and a curse. AMTI is a small division within the parent company, Tetra Tech, which acquired AMT a few years back. AMT is the only division within Tetra Tech that does IT work and it's a government contractor with limited contracts, so there is no room for growth both inside and outside the DC metro area. The paid time off, sick time and paid holidays all come from the same pool of time, so you lose PTO every time you take a holiday off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    AMT doesn't really fit in with the rest of Tetra Tech. Make PTO, sick and holiday time separate from each other.

    I have been working at AMTI full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people who work here are wonderful, the pay is decent, benefits are good, you get an office (no cubes!), respected, listened to, and management is easy to talk to. There are a lot of places to go out for lunch. No micromanagement so you are in charge of yourself and meeting your requirements.

    Cons

    The staff kitchen areas could use some improvements and more opportunities for training would be great! It takes a while for any materials to be added to the kitchens (paper towels, soap, sugar, etc.) so people usually go out and buy their own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at AMTI

    Pros

    On some contracts, the clients are really easy to work with.
    Most staff work at client sites and do not have to deal with politics at HQ.

    Cons

    Low pay. The will do anything to maximize profits.
    No new business in over 2 years. They are limping along on existing contracts.
    Inept senior management. The president just keeps hiring more VPs when she really needs to get rid of her "yes man" COO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try treating your people better. The benefits package is a joke. The stupid employee newsletter is a waste of time.

    Pros

    -Upper Management is trying to instill some pride in the company and improve
    -Some big wins are getting the firm noticed

    Cons

    -Holdovers from previous regime throughout the company are lazy and incapable
    -Facilities are dated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trim the fat ALREADY!! There are countless hungry and motivated people out there, time for an infusion of talent and new blood.

    I worked at AMTI

    Pros

    Great tools to do your job, and always plenty of work for the most part. You are also mostly working alone and free to come up with solutions on your own.

    Cons

    Spineless, useless management, and too many "micro managers." The company was losing tons of money as they are too stupid with finances. Bought a lot of equipment that should have been leased.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more competent management and less of it.
