I worked at Advanced Technology Services

Pros

The pay and compensation were defintely above average compared to maintenance and repair positions in other jobs. The HR department was very helpful with me concerning pay and time off issues. ATS had a strong safety program that promoted a safer work environment for both the employees and the customers.

Cons

Promises of enrolling personnel into programs where they could advance their careers were not kept. Management failed in correcting personnel shortages by letting employees go as soon as new hires checked aboard. This resulted in a revolving door pattern where those who still worked at Beltsville were being asked to work overtime and odd shifts when they could have spent more time with their families. Previous site managers allowed pay information on some employees to be carelessly leaked to the rest of the site, creating an atmosphere of jealousy and resentment among co-workers, even to the point where one employee quit because of the pay disparity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the employees and strive to retain people instead of jettisoning them to maintain a "zero defect" image. When promises are made to employees concerning schools and professional growth, every effort should be made to keep those promises. Personal information such as pay needs to be better safeguarded. This could help improve morale, retention, and recruiting.

    Pros

    They do treat employees with respect and compensate more than fairly to those who perform up to the requirements of the job. They also practice what they preach by putting a mans or womans family first along with SAFETY!!!!!

    Cons

    A good part of management has no experience in the line of work or service that we provide to a customer, and they tend to get involved or try to help under some circumstances at the wrong time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you hire a site manager or a site supervisor it would seem to be more advantagous to hire some one with a background in the field we provide service for instead of someone who use to manage people in general.
