    Pros

    Company is well positioned in the industry, team members are very competitive, customer oriented and friendly. Nice culture and good opportunities to contribute to business and extend skills to a new level.

    Cons

    None that I can think of right now. Maybe AC can be a bit adjusted, sometimes it can get a bit warm and other times it was too cold.

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

    Pros

    Atlona has been going through a massive change in the company as they change the business distribution strategy. Many of the past employees with experience in the previous targeted markets have left and fresh blood has been brought in from all over the audiovisual industry. The company is growing very fast and the products are now better than ever. I was happy to see upper management positions filled from within. Opportunity is better than ever before at Atlona.

    Cons

    Some of the weight of the past are still heavy on the company. Once all the mindsets of the past are able to view the new direction and embrace it the company will have even greater success. PTO policy is weak. The changes in distribution of the product are creating an odd environment pushing for decisions of the old while trying to drive the business the new direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Talk to more customers.

    I have been working at Atlona full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Atlona feels like a small company in terms of the interactions between employees and the ability to reach management for questions. The company is still growing and trying to find its path which means the employees have a say in the direction and success of the company. The office is diverse and there is a lot comradery between employees. One on One Reviews are held each year and employees are able to express their desires for growths within the company. Atlona also provides training for those looking to improve their knowledge at the work place. There are a lot of bright and enthusiastic people working at Atlona.

    Cons

    As a growing company, the direction of the company has changed quite a bit in the last few years. As someone who has been with the company for over 3 years, I have seen a few different management directions the company has chosen. This is understandable from a growing company and within the last year there has been a major push to improve the company image and standing. With that said, employees may be asked to perform duties outside their normal titles possibly even outside their department duties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company should be management according to statistics (performance) rather than perceptions of each employees performance by judging their day to day actions at the work place (seeing someone away from their cube).

    I have been working at Atlona full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of sales opportunities in a growing segment. But be willing to work hard and put in the time needed to succeed. If you think this is a 40 hour a week job every week, you'll be disappointed. Flexible with work schedule and a very family-first attitude. Seems to be a renewed interest in hiring and keeping quality employees.
       Great in-office benefits, parties, etc. Nice little perks from management to show appreciation for a job well done. Gift cards, holiday gifts, etc.
       Good product and lots of differentiation from other "me-too" companies in the product category. Genuine concern for customers and providing a good sales and service experience at all levels.

    Cons

    Compensation is just average or slightly below. Can be very slow to adapt and change methods, procedures, etc. in a very competitive market segment. Relatively small company that does have some under-staffing issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It seems you have given a little more trust and control over to the people you hire. Keep it up.

    Great people with diverse interests. Good management team. Company is making changes to be more like other companies in Silicon Valley.

    Keep hiring people with knowledge in their profession. Make sure you take care of your greatest asset which is your employees. Offer a profit sharing program.
