Current Employee - Individual Contributor in Atlanta, GA

Pros

Great benefits, energetic people, lots of opportunity for growth, lots of opportunities to learn via internal training offered weekly at no costs. A lead from where you are type of environment where your input is always heard. Rapidly growing organization means plenty of room to grow current roles as well as find new roles. A company that people actually retire from without being terminated months before retirement! A great place to start and finish your professional career.

Cons

Although input is heard, decisions that have negative impacts are made daily by leadership who kind of figure it out as they go. Too many managers with no formal training in their areas who continue to figure it out as they go. The transparency boasted by the company has not proven to be true in all areas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust your knowledge workers input and really "listen" to employees. Not taking action on employee suggestions is a positive sign that you dont really care about their input. Align your department with other ATG & ATC business units for better input and output across the company.

    ATC ruins another software company and lets the sales team go

    Pros

    Benefits, 401k, working from home.

    Cons

    hahaha...ATC management. We all figured out Homenet would go under as soon as we learned of BL's reputation for running divisions. At last they had a company wide meeting on December 4 2013 and let all the sales team go. Why? Because they hired 40 some sales reps, messed up the inventory for several thousand dealerships nationwide, had a huge cancelation rate and could not make HomeNet profitable. Who's next Vin Solutions...I guess autotraders strategy of buying separate companies and trying to be a dealer.com is not working. haha. Jokers.

    Pros

    Full of passionate people working on many exciting projects for a growing profitable company. There are real opportunities to use your entrepreneurial spirit to forge new solutions.
    Fast paced
    If you like change, priorities shift often.

    Cons

    The company has kept its startup feel...some places, and is two steps forward - one step back in maturity in others. Like reorgs? You'll get them often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Map career paths and include a managerial path and a technical path. The best technical people do not make the best management.
