I worked at Atlona full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Maybe a few good products

Cons

Crappy management. Owners are clueless to what it takes to,run a successful company and keep good high quality employees. Most products are "me too" virtually nothing is unique from competitors. Quality is average at best.

Owners thnk the incredible growth they had will continue by magic. Employees are treated like crap. Very low pay and benefits at best are poor. They lay off or fire good high quality people and promote a manager who is a "yes man"

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do what you have done to so many others, fire yourself. You don't deserve to run a company and pay yourselves tons of $$$$ at the expense of those who generate the revenue. Hire a team of pros, let them do what they know how to do and maybe your company will survive. If not, better start looking for a job yourself

    Cons

    Extremely inexperienced owners (read: you don't know what you don't know)
    Morale level of a funeral home
    Lack of innovation/product availability

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your management staff! When you've gone out of your way to hire experienced folks to help guide you through a growth period you should really listen to them. Don't just listen to new folks for 90 days then revert back to the same broken methods of management that you had before. You are running a multi-million dollar business, it's okay to ask for help. Your customers and employees are the life blood of your organization. Start treating them like assets instead of afterthoughts.

    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.
