    I worked at Alatec Inc as a contractor

    Pros

    Alactec has a good benefits package. Alatec will work with you to make sure you succeed. Alatec has a really good retirement plan.

    Cons

    Most positions are contract positions. It can be hard to stay on when you are going from contract to contract. But that's the nature of contract work.

    I worked at Alatec Inc full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company had decent benefits.

    Cons

    Its a contracting company so notification of a job lose was minimal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to have a better safety net for your contractors, Early notification of a pending contract loss would allow more time to prepare for a loss in income and find a future job.

    I worked at Alatec Inc full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - fair upper management
    - interesting projects to develop a career
    - good benefits (medical, vision,dental, tuition reimbursement, vacations, 401K plan...)

    Cons

    - projects only lasts for 9 months - 1 year.
    - no guarantee on job security.
    - too much politics among the middle management and employees.
    - employees argued a lot and even bad mouth each other.
    - need to network with middle management to get promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - promotion should be based on performance, not network.
    -please ignore some employees saying bad things about others. Those bad things are mostly rumors.

    I have been working at Alatec Inc

    Pros

    ALATEC is a small company and that helps a lot when it comes to being in touch with people higher up.

    Cons

    ALATEC is a small company and that gives very little job security which is not nice. Although that helps in some other respects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try it out, ALATEC is better than some places I've worked at and no place is perfect. Give it a try.

    Terrible salaries and incompetent management make this a terrible place to work.

    I have been working at Alatec Inc

    Pros

    The company offers good benefits, including out of pocket health care cost reimbursement and a small amount of tuition reimbursement. It offers adequate opportunities to gain experience you can take to a better job. Upper level management is reasonably competent.

    Cons

    Middle management is highly incompetent. Salaries are bottom of the barrel. Performance reviews are few and far between, and even a stellar review will only get you a 4% raise. Communication between management and employees is the worst I've seen. Management is all too ready to buckle to unreasonable contract demands/changes, probably due to the fact they are a small company that needs their contracts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer competitive salaries and stop treating your employees like they are expendable. Replace middle managers with people who know what they are doing. Start giving technical interviews to prospective employees instead of just filling slots with little regard to actual qualifications.
