    I have been working at Atomic Data full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Atomic Data is a collection of Minnesota's finest, tech hungry weirdos. The company is expanding like wild fire across the Twin Cities, creating opportunities for internal employees and for anyone looking for a laid-back environment, where shared knowledge is bountiful. Two tools for success: customer service and a sense of humor. With a year under my belt, I’ve had the privilege to work closely with management and implement process improvement impacting the entire organization. Management and C-level personnel aren’t peripheral by any means, encouraging communication and the flow of work. Training is reimbursed upon proof of passing, which is a huge plus for those looking to further their professional development. The CEO maintains community outreach as a top priority, resulting in company-wide social awareness and call to action. Leadership is firm on the competitive advantage and obligation of diversity and inclusion. I wouldn't be a part of a company now or in the future that didn't hold such a high expectation for empowering all people. I feel respected, supported, and proud of my supervisors and coworkers. I laugh every day and my knowledge of the managed service industry continues to grow. If you can get down with a morning hum of Rick and Morty banter and hard work, Atomic Data is for you.

    Bougie benefits: stocked kitchen, all-company BBQ, employee engagement gifts, Atomic brews, parties, team outings, yoga, massages, 24x7 fitness area, a creepy piano, videogames, game tables, etc..

    Cons

    Parking is either limited or expensive for ramps at Minneapolis locations- partially reimbursed - options to take advantage of metro pass

    Advice to Management

    Embrace change management principles to help with leadership and adopting new processes, tools, and procedures

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Atomic Data (Minneapolis, MN) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I asked about cloud competition, and they did not seem comfortable with growth nor did they seem like a company planning for the future. Questions were very subjective and they wanted textbook answers. Did not seem like they wanted a better or a different process and procedure, other than what they(textbook) had in place.
