    Pros

    Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Local management lacks leadership skills.

    Advice to Management

    Train team leads. Check in with employees to make sure one employee doesn't get away with murder while the rest pick up the slack.

    I worked at A-Tek full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This company offers a nice salary, as long as you negotiate well. Also, the staff has great team work and it is like a family environment.

    Cons

    Management is very poor. There are no management training. It's just scientist who are either grandfathered in or know the right people. HR is the same way. No one has the laboratory staff back. Also overworked, due to weekends and holidays. There is no growth unless you plan to move to another state.

    Advice to Management

    Take management training classes. Also, help staff out when it gets super busy and short staffed. Take accountability for your mistakes and actions.

    I worked at A-Tek for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Company knows what they're doing and compensates their employees at a fair rate. Contractors are pretty much on their own to do the jobs they were hired for.

    Cons

    Salary based on Government Contract. Hope that the company keeps winning contract bids!

    Advice to Management

    Good job treating your employees as human beings....the Christmas package to employees are greatly appreciated.....Your management is missed once our work site was transferred to the lesser experienced business partner.
