Pros

Individual contributor seen as valuable and indispensable to the team. Made to feel as part of family and on the critical path. Every day was unique from managing tradeshow events, supporting business development initiatives, and analyzing strategic objectives to participating in barrel testing, professional development, and vendor selection process.

Cons

Employees don't seem to have long tenures at this company. It seems that if you are not well liked (and you may not know if you aren't) you will be cut from the team without warning. They go through a purge almost every year where they get rid of the unchosen ones.

Advice to Management

Be honest in your review feedback. Don't candy coat or set people up for failure by creating a false sense of security.

    Pros

    Great work to be involved with, management is very hands off. Facility is away from traffic and commute is easy.

    Cons

    lack of real contracts at the moment and inability to retain top talent and key people will hurt the organization in the long run.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what you want to be and gain some type of culture. All ATK has done is acquire companies and does very little integrate them and have them work together for one common goal.
