    I have been working at AtHoc full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great mission, friendly atmosphere, approachable management that listens to employees, strategic vision, team spirit.
    This company makes serious product, not just "something to make money".
    Fun Committee is very creative and are opened for everyone to join. Employees decide how and when we have fun.
    Free lunches, dinners, snacks, fruits, free shuttle from Caltrain and other benefits.
    I think AtHoc is a very thoughtful, stable company with great future.
    Work-life balance: if you work too hard to meet release deadline - you will be rewarded.

    Cons

    Promotions
    Compensation could be slightly better to be on top of the market

    Pros

    Company is wildly solvent/successful.
    •Politics are minimal to nonexistent.
    •Work/life balance is admirable.
    •At the same time, we get a lot done!
    •People are incredibly nice and welcoming.
    •Great “let’s-roll-up-our-sleeves-and-get-‘er-done” attitude! Lots of companies claim this as their culture but few deliver, IMHO.
    •Company sensitive to mind-numbing Bay Area commutes.
    •Tolerant workplace.
    •People leave you alone to do your job.
    •My supervisor is very hands-off and lets me do my thing, but, then, he sort of knows exactly when to come in and provide really valuable advice, then he swoops off! Love it.
    •I really love this place and my job.
    When people are terminated, usually we all get it. Not "I can't believe they let Barney go! He was so nice and ridiculously competent." And when they do, they take pains to gather a group together and explain why/what happened.

    Cons

    •Location could be better. No convenient way to get from Caltrain to office. Yes, there’s a shuttle, but it’s endless, as it's not an AtHoc shuttle. It's a corporate-area shuttle.
    Would love AtHoc sponsored bus from city. About 15 people live in city, enough to fill small van.And, of course, that number's only going to grow.
    •Benefits could be better. Have to wait 9 months for 401k match and there’s no flexible spending.
    Perhaps due to start-up status, but, sometimes, it's not clear who the primary stakeholder/approver is on a given project. Causes confusion and time-sapping swirl.

    Pros

    AtHoc is a VERY employee friendly company that prides itself on taking care of people. Its is a company that is growing very quickly given the demands of the market. Everyone is very helpful and willing to pitch in to get the work done as needed. Many long days and long nights but very exciting to be with an organization that believes in transparency and employee growth ! Senior management is very accessible and open to fresh and out of the box thinking of ideas.

    Cons

    Company is growing very fast. Keeping up with versioning of software and enhanced capabilities as they become available can be challenge. Keeping up with all the new hires can also be a challenge but welcomed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing...being retired military of 27 years, I could not have asked for a better opportunity or experience other than what I have been a part of after joinig AtHoc !!

    Pros

    The talent pool in this company is amazing and extremely diverse. This is a tech company focused on an extremely important mission; life-safety. As such, its employees are extremely diverse from the technology field to homeland security and department of defense. There is a always an exciting "buzz" that can be felt any time while in the HQ and things move very fast with this company.

    Cons

    The company is growing very quickly and is being challenged while adjusting to this growth.

    Pros

    Important Mission. The quality of the people across the company is amazing? I firmly believe the management team is concerned about what is in the best interest of its employees while trying to balance the continued growth of the company, a tough task. You will be extremely proud about what the company provides its customers. Truly a Customer focused company.

    Cons

    High pressure becaue of the importance of what we do. Seems like it is in a constant state of change because of the rapid growth of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to make the postive employee focused changes that have and will occur to improve benifits and quality of life. Do not lose focus on the cuosmter and our employees.

    Pros

    Stable senior management team
    Engaged employees
    Competitive pay structure
    Work/life balance

    Cons

    No strong cons come to mind - I feel I am challenged, respected by senior management and part of a company that creates more than just a product - but life saving technology.

    Pros

    Free meals and snacks, although these feel like a manipulation to prevent people from leaving to get lunch.

    Cons

    Company is disorganized, constant changes in staff due to quality managers and employees leaving, they become frustrated with the company's founders lack of experience and ego driven politics. Compensation is poor, causing talented individuals to leave for better jobs in the valley. Work/life balance is difficult, deadlines are not realistic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The founders should resign and give the business over to people with more experience in how to run a successful company that can attract and keep good talent in the valley.
