I have been working at Advanced Testing Laboratory as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

Depends on which group you're with, but my teammates are awesome and we have a lot of fun working together in the lab. Music playing and dancing around while rocking out big numbers. Lots of variety in the number and type of testing done - both instrumental and wet chemistry.

Good for experience, but get out fast.

Cons

Working on site with the client is stressful. Coemployment is made a big deal of and trying to work around the issues creates tension. If the two groups could work together without worrying about coemployment, we'd get a whole lot more done - it used to be much better, but they've started building walls up recently that can't really be torn down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure employees are kept in the loop.
    Ensure the employees you hire are committed to the work they perform.

    I have been working at Advanced Testing Laboratory full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Luckily got placed in a position with hands-on use of instrumentation and method development. Good first year work experience to put on a resume. People in my group, contracted off-site, were friendly.

    Cons

    Pay is simply horrible. It's a joke. Management is useless. There is no upward mobility. Raises are skimpy. Benefits are lip service. Heard working on base (at ATL headquarters) is awful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach your managers how to manage. Upper management, push for better pay for employees so your retention issues lessen. We do good, hard, advanced level work and should be paid well for doing so.
