    I have been working at ATS Automation Tooling

    Pros

    varied and innovative technologies, always being able to work on something new; very creative job. The company still claims to be the world's largest automation systems provider - one has to wonder with all the plant closures.

    Cons

    instability in corporate management; current executive team is ruthless. Anthony Caputo (current CEO) does not know automation and is never available to the employees. His team is also inexperienced in automation. Over the last 5 years probably about 50% of the talent (engineers, managers, toolmakers) have left due to the instable environment that has been created.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    in the custom systems integration industry, engineers are not equal - work to keep the talent. Don't micromanage; the level of bureaucracy at the flagship division in cambridge is insane. the environment promotes thinking of oneself, of being "exclusive" rather than "inclusive", of being forced to justify decision - very low trust

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    ATS Automation Tooling provides varied, interesting job experience. There is a new job in a different industry every four to six months. It is an excellent place to gain experience in a variety of industries from medical devices to automotive parts. The benefit package is competive.

    Cons

    ATS has a succession of poor managers with little understanding of engineering. There is no system in place for recognizing excellence with a bonus or raise. The sales department consistently makes unrealistic commitments for job schedules and budgets. ATS is cutting benefits and will not let you roll over vacation time from year to year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers with engineering experience
