    I worked at American Type Culture Collection full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Get tons of Federal funds, most of employees are nice, good universal medical coverage plan

    Cons

    Strong polilitian culture. Extremely poor management for instance almost every apps full time developer left ATCC within 4months and they cannot find right person to replace so far. Salary is lower than average job market level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go find younger CEO and give him full support so he may save the company's future, do not make him become a Yes boy to to follow current CEO's will

    Pros

    If I could summarize three good things about ATCC, I would say: Coworkers are generally very friendly, ATCC offers good benefits and a manageable work schedule.

    Cons

    Now for the not so good things about ATCC: Poorly-defined mission, Stodgy management and work environment, Poor communication, and distrust between different divisions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on what you want the mission of ATCC to be and let your employees know what their roles are.
