Cons

- projects only lasts for 9 months - 1 year.
- no guarantee on job security.
- too much politics among the middle management and employees.

Advice to Management

- promotion should be based on performance, not network.
-please ignore some employees saying bad things about others. Those bad things are mostly rumors.

    Pros

    ALATEC is a small company and that helps a lot when it comes to being in touch with people higher up.

    Cons

    ALATEC is a small company and that gives very little job security which is not nice. Although that helps in some other respects.

    Advice to Management

    Try it out, ALATEC is better than some places I've worked at and no place is perfect. Give it a try.

  2. Helpful (1)

    Terrible salaries and incompetent management make this a terrible place to work.

    Pros

    The company offers good benefits, including out of pocket health care cost reimbursement and a small amount of tuition reimbursement. It offers adequate opportunities to gain experience you can take to a better job. Upper level management is reasonably competent.

    Cons

    Middle management is highly incompetent. Salaries are bottom of the barrel. Performance reviews are few and far between, and even a stellar review will only get you a 4% raise. Communication between management and employees is the worst I've seen. Management is all too ready to buckle to unreasonable contract demands/changes, probably due to the fact they are a small company that needs their contracts.

    Advice to Management

    Offer competitive salaries and stop treating your employees like they are expendable. Replace middle managers with people who know what they are doing. Start giving technical interviews to prospective employees instead of just filling slots with little regard to actual qualifications.
