    This is a company that will have trouble sustaining its past growth because of the narrowness of its focus.

    Company has focused on treating employees well in the recent strong growth environment.

    Pros

    The best part of this company was working closely with other military and EOD operators. Working with the same professionals from the military we left was a big bonus. This made a military to civilian transition easy. A-T Solutions does have some of the best EOD professionals in the world. They have diversified their instructor portfolio with more technical experts outside the field of EOD and it has made a great difference.

    Cons

    The best part of this company is also the biggest problem in the company. A-T Solutions employs so many former military professionals that some forget they are not in the military anymore. There are so many lost opportunities at the company for advancing their former enlisted personnel into leadership roles that these same people are leaving the company for better opportunities. Former enlisted personnel with advanced degrees, continued education, and more experience are leaving because there is a glass ceiling that is controlled by former military Commissioned Officers. Many of the young former officers may have only seen 8 years in uniform and they are controlling the direction of a company that has a core of former enlisted personnel with much more experience. It is unfortunate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the program manager courses and cliques of former officers and ring knockers. Few other companies or government entities care about a PMP or similar certification. You are distancing yourselves from your core of instructors and professionals that want to advance and one day lead the company. The bulk of the work of the company is on the road and overseas. Go visit your people and ask them what they want and recommend for customer support and customer service. Also ask them what is trending in their world. You may not want to chase unobtainable contracts when you have limited experience in the associated field. Lastly, treat your people better. Stop making shortcuts in health insurance, time off, morale boosters (Christmas parties), and the like. This make the grass much greener on the other side.
