    Pros

    A very experienced Operations and Sales staff, which was nice for working around issues and tailoring solutions.

    Cons

    Not much in the way of innovation or changing with the times. Was told that we didn't need laptops for Sales because when the Branch Manager did the same job laptops hadn't been invented yet and they "got along just fine." Heard they have gone through some changes.

    Pros

    Certain managers and employees very helpful and very easy to work with. Good hours and a leave your work at work position.

    Cons

    Huge disconnect between upper management and the working staff. No involvement or communication from upper manager unless there is a problem or something of that nature. Pay raises are horrible and no profit sharing for over a year when they have plenty of money for games, paintings, and season tickets to all these different teams in Chicago (but never find the opportunity to give any of these tickets to employees). Focus is not on employees and they approach employees with the 'they can be replaced' mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Get involved and don't just sit in your office. If you are doing something, communicate that with the staff. Re-consider who you have in management positions and ask the staff under these managers their opinion of their manager to really find out what is going on.

    Pros

    The people who work at AIT are awesome. People in their forties have been there for 15+ years because it becomes a family.

    Cons

    Training and consistency is atrocious. Everyone is on a different page in different departments and there is not enough cross training.

    Advice to Management

    Create SOPs for departments, stick to them, and measure people's successes instead of shortcomings. My supervisor and department head were amazing. The rest of the company, not so much.

    You don't get paid enough for the amount of work you have to do, Management doesn't care about employees work/life balance, Sales reps don't do any work and get compensated 3x the amount of the other employees

    Pros

    I liked the people in my department.

    Cons

    The only "new" (upper) management being hired (over the last few years) were mostly from CEVA and we all saw the change. The saying "you are what you eat" is definitely true in this case. AIT took a big bite out of a CEVA sandwich. No one wants to listen or take time to REALLY view other sides/ideas. And it's truly a shame. "One team, one vision" is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    There's no point to offer advice. They wouldn't listen then so why would they listen now?
