    I worked at Atrenta

    Pros

    Great working environment, employees are great people and the company is headed in the right direction. Location is very good too.

    Cons

    Doesn't have the perks or benefits of working at a larger corporation, but this is to be expected of a smaller company.

    I worked at Atrenta

    Pros

    Still operates as startup and so you get a chance to work in lot of functional areas

    Cons

    too much management hierarchy, signficant mgmt overhead when you compare ratio of employees to managers, lot of partiality in promotions and recognition. Too many inexperienced managers ;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reduce the mgmt overhead and follow industry guidelines; you dont have to promote 5yrs exp to mgr; they cannot guide and mentor the team..no need to act big like 5th largest ; have to show that in revenue and direction. Proper lack of vision is also hurting ; it wasnt like this before...ajoy needs to take charge and bring atrenta back to its good old days...

    I worked at Atrenta

    Pros

    Atrenta is still a startup. Hence, there is chance to stand out from the crowd. Plus, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you are developing something that is useful to semiconductor engineers.

    Cons

    In recent years the firm has become risk averse. It seems that the management has to show yearly revenue increases to investors. Which means that the work environment now prefers individuals who will tow the line and not rock the boat. If you believe in "if it ain't broken, don't fix it" dictum, then you would fit in in Atrenta. If not, then Atrenta of today could be a bit frustrating. It really is a pity because Atrenta wasn't always like this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so risk-averse and stop incorporating big company processes. Atrenta is a startup and startups need to take risks. If you want to stand on your own as a product company, then at some point of time you will have to say no to the first eager customer that comes your way. Have some conviction in your original conviction of "predictive analysis". It was a great place to go to. What is not is developing custom tools for big clients.
