I have been working at Atlona full-time (more than an year)

Pros

There are so many talented, good natured, skilled people who have worked and who still do work at Atlona. These people make working at Atlona possible.

Cons

The Cons are as follows...
Compensation = Horrible
Corporate Environment = Hell
Respect from Upper Management to employees = Minimal at best
Corporate Culture = "Just work and shut the Hell Up" + "Employees are not important"
Strategic Vision = NONE

There is No corporate vision
There is No corporate mission (except "Get more money")
There is No clear direction
There is No strategic outlook
There are people who literally cry every week being at Atlona

Most people are searching for new jobs once they get to Atlona.
Many managers try to pretend that things are not terrible and that the problems are your fault
Managers don't take responsibility

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My advice to executive management would be to make more of an effort to make the people who work at Atlona feel valued, appreciated, respected and heard. In order to develop a better corporate culture and inspire people provide and operate according to a vision that people can buy into.

Establish a clear mission for the company so people know and understand what the company is doing and why. Otherwise people feel like hamsters on a wheel going nowhere for no reason except to receive a paycheck. That type of condition is unrewarding and leads to high turn over.

Pay people industry standards or above for what they do, this is key because it inspires loyalty and promotes a sense that people are really valued. Above all else listen to the burdens, suggestions and insights that the employees have and respond to them publicly and respectfully.

    I have been working at Atlona

    Pros

    most employees are nice fun people

    Cons

    Pay plan is horrible. very underpaid. Benefits are OK, but only 7 company holidays, what a joke! Major disconnect from SR management with rest of the company. Many employees very unhappy. Lots of people leaving company

    Keep changing internal structure, but keep putting things off and don't keep the actual salespeople in the loop. New products need to be ready for market before announcing them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire someone experienced to run the company, someone who values your employees. Don't forget that your employees are your biggest asset. Don't take them for granted

    I have been working at Atlona full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Atlona has evolved. The company is doing well. Employees all got raises and recently everyone got a new iPad. Good to see all the whiners gone.

    Cons

    Sometimes decisions and changes seem quick and not thought out still. Change is good, some change doesn't need to be done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to trust the people you have. Across the board the company is much better than a year ago.
