I worked at Atkore International full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Mostly good people here. Sometimes hard to tell apart from the walking zombies.

Cons

Most people just want to go home, take their meds and forget their day. Processes and systems are antiquated and nobody seems to care.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get your people and processes right BEFORE you try to go public. Place a higher emphasis on Quality, let people know it's important...don't just send them to waste entire days at a Kaisan and hope for the best. Take care of business before it implodes.
