    Pros

    The Pros for seeking employment AMTI
    salary: pay more than other companies (Lockheed BAH). Benefits are good.
    You work mostly alone, own office (with a door) come and go as you please. co worker are cool.

    Cons

    Management: questionable, Do not provide career development training. (If you wish to seek training you must you must use your vacation days and pay to attend any conferences, workshop training regardless if its related to your job) sick leave, holiday and vacation hours are all the same. If you call out sick you use the same hours Use must use your
     holiday hours for all federal holiday's. If you been out sick for a couple days and if there's a federal holiday and you don't have enough hours. hours will go towards federal and sick leave will then becomes no pay.
    Another Con: At least once a week 5-10 employees are turning in there resignation to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. If you want people to stay provide job training. Stop bragging about the new contracts awards and profits. and invest your employees.

    I worked at AMTI full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Because I worked at the client site, I never interacted with any of my direct AMTI management. That can be a blessing and a curse. Hands off management. I worked as a sub contractor to a bigger government contractor who I reported to directly.

    Cons

    Because I worked at the client site, I never interacted with any of my direct AMTI management. That can be a blessing and a curse. AMTI is a small division within the parent company, Tetra Tech, which acquired AMT a few years back. AMT is the only division within Tetra Tech that does IT work and it's a government contractor with limited contracts, so there is no room for growth both inside and outside the DC metro area. The paid time off, sick time and paid holidays all come from the same pool of time, so you lose PTO every time you take a holiday off.

    Advice to Management

    AMT doesn't really fit in with the rest of Tetra Tech. Make PTO, sick and holiday time separate from each other.

    I have been working at AMTI full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people who work here are wonderful, the pay is decent, benefits are good, you get an office (no cubes!), respected, listened to, and management is easy to talk to. There are a lot of places to go out for lunch. No micromanagement so you are in charge of yourself and meeting your requirements.

    Cons

    The staff kitchen areas could use some improvements and more opportunities for training would be great! It takes a while for any materials to be added to the kitchens (paper towels, soap, sugar, etc.) so people usually go out and buy their own.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    On some contracts, the clients are really easy to work with.
    Most staff work at client sites and do not have to deal with politics at HQ.

    Cons

    Low pay. The will do anything to maximize profits.
    No new business in over 2 years. They are limping along on existing contracts.
    Inept senior management. The president just keeps hiring more VPs when she really needs to get rid of her "yes man" COO.

    Advice to Management

    Try treating your people better. The benefits package is a joke. The stupid employee newsletter is a waste of time.
