    ATG was a stellar company to work for, and was incredibly formative in shaping my feelings about how good companies run.

    Release Engineer (Former Employee)
    Cambridge, MA

    ProsIncredible coworkers, an amazing work environment, and one of the healthiest and most stellar company cultures I've ever encountered in the business.

    Their technology stack was far, far ahead of its time, offering a dependency injection IOC container, high availability server, and an industrial strength persistence model a decade before these things became common place.

    ConsThey've been bought by Oracle. Enough said.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeeping the company's identity alive through your acquisition is going to be an enourmous challenge. Good luck with it!

    Was a great ride

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Cambridge, MA

    ProsOpen collaborative environment
    Genuinely nice and sharp people to work with
    Cutting edge technology
    Profitable quarter after quarter - company has money and is willing to invest

    ConsLack of coordination amongst departments
    At times a bit of an 'us and them' mentality developed between the software development team and the rest of the company

    Advice to Senior ManagementSet product direction and drive more quickly

    A Good company, sad to see it go

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Seattle, WA

    ProsVacation, sick and holidays are excellent. An overall positive outlook throughout the company, not always doom and gloom as some might find in other companies. Very fair compensation, in my opinion.

    ConsIts getting bought by Oracle. Job Titles don't always represent responsibilities and/or skill level. Some of the technologies in OS are disparate and not quite merged together as I would hope.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't Sell!

    Solid company, great people, cool products.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Cambridge, MA

    ProsGood benefits, really smart people. Fond of innovation. Many people who leave here return after testing the waters.

    ConsNot a huge company so limited room for advancement. Seems like company should be bigger than it is sometimes, given how good the technology is.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSometimes I think we take innovation for granted. I'd like to see us get back to innovating some great new products to stay ahead of the curve.

    Quick review of ATG.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsAbility to work remotely if necessary.
    Good coworkers/management that provide support if needed.
    Willing to hire fresh, entry level employees.

    ConsSmall chance of professional advancement within the company.
    No pay increase/raises.
    Bad knowledge transfer between departments.
    Potential to be overworked.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBiggest problem is the lack of reasonable pay increase for lower-tier employees (I cant speak for upper management). Multiple years of dedicated service to the company MIGHT get you a pathetic 2% increase, but i can think of few years where even this was withheld. Also, spend some money and train your employees more thoroughly. I can understand you not wanting to bring people to Cambridge every week, but at least have regular training via teleconference.

    Look elsewhere

    Professional Services (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsUsed to be to work on latest technology and a great set of people. Not anymore. In the 90s and the early 2000 ATG was the innovation powerhouse. Rest of the world is still catching up with the technologies that ATG designed in those years. ATG still claims a top end roster of clients, any other company would envy to have a clientèle like that. ATG is still recognized as a leader in ecommerce field and many of the top retailers still use ATG. Unfortunately, company has become more of a product retailer, where they buy other companies, integrate their products and sell to customers, without investing in its own development efforts.

    ConsNo professional growth. Managers are more concerned about quarter to quarter survival, support has no staff, products is not doing anything new and innovative (integrations), services is overworked and all the seasoned people have left.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave an long term plan for the company, you can't just keep changing strategy every year. recognize what are companies strengths and use them. Remember why ATG was such a great company and what it is not.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    ATG is a fun environment to work

    Account Executive (Current Employee)

    Prosgood place to work. Good innovative environment, play hard-work hard Great technology, leader in the space.

    Conscommission structure is lower than others in the software industry. Difficult to remain the leader, many staff have been at the company for a long time. Young marketing group.

    Advice to Senior Managementmore development is needed to improve integration of products, ease of implementation, and gain a larger partner base.
