Quick Learning Place

Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Santa Clara, CA

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

ProsThis place has been a blessing for me because I have learned about mobile security and app management which has allowed me to build a new career. I am now doing independent consulting work.

The management has been very cooperative & I still interact with them. I have direct access to CEO & other executives who have a very technical forwarding looking perspective on building the company. I enjoyed my stay there.

ConsNot too many. I could get more money at google or facebook but the trade off is if I would get access to such a breadth of mobile technology.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep that good relaxed environment at the company as you scale it up

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
