    I worked at AOTMP full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The promises are great! They will offer you the world.

    Cons

    The reality is not. I saw a review saying someone expecting a party atmosphere would not do well here. That is very true. However, most professionals are not seeking a party atmosphere. Some do enjoy working within a collaborative environment. That is not AOTMP. Some enjoy positive feedback. Again, no. If one were to look at the mass amount of people that have come and gone, you can see the high amount of turn over.

    Fear is a main motivator here. You will be isolated. Paranoia will be used against you. Information will be provided on a need to know basis with key pieces hidden from you. If you express concern or interest, you have too much time on your hands. I was asked during my interview if I would sit for 8-9 hours straight without complaint. Not only a violation of workplace regulations, but inhumane.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees have moved on to great things after leaving you. Obviously you have an eye for talent. Chose to nuture that and not beat it down.

    Pros

    There are no good things to share and no matter how gard I try ... Still nothing positive about this company comes to my mind

    Cons

    Everything. Lousy owners .Lousy management. Lousy business practices that cross the line into eeoc territory. Lousy morale. Lousy business concepts very antiquated think from all the so called people in charge. Love to see this place shut down ... Effective immediately !!

    Advice to Management

    Please if they listened they probably could be one of the leading telecom companies in the world!!
    Fire yourselves and close the doors for good.

    I worked at AOTMP full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Absolutely no PROS about this company. This place is like selling your soul to the devil without any of the glory attached to seeling your soul ...

    Cons

    Everything.

    The owners encourage employees solely based on bully tactics and the employees are rewarded by being intimidated and humiliated and belittled in meeting and in front of others. This place is a REAL HR department nightmare full of moments where the touch of harassment lingers in the air ...i.e... a workplace based on an intimidating and hostile work environment.

    How is it this company has not been busted by the EEOC...
    If these employees let the eeoc know exactly how this company operates this could be a class action lawsuit in the makings.

    I do not understand what type of people or organization or business would ever invest in a company who are so unethical in most if not all of their day to day operations especially when it comes to the treatment of their employees (or the lack there of).

    This place is pathetic and my advice is to run for the hills and do not be persuaded to work here no matter how great the compensation may seem because its simply another bait and hook method...do not take the bite.

    I would never recommend my worat enemies to this company it is that bad. The worst place environmwnt lacks total morale and the oweners and the minions aka the upper mgmt is a joke and they are old fashioned and the good ole boy club mentality/ways and not willing to change so the place never gets out of this start up mode and the lack and willingness to change will keep them from true success.

    I think it would be best to just shut the doors or better yet the donors and investors stop providing the means for this company to continue operating.

    Advice to Management

    Like they care ...

    Pros

    Opportunity to work for a small and fast growing company. The chance to be challenged while learning new skills and improving on old skills.

    Cons

    None. If your looking for a party atmosphere this isn't the place. If you want a job where you can grow and improve and want to work hard AOTMP is the place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing

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

    Pros

    The company has a number of great ideas and amazing employees that work their hardest to execute on those ideas.

    Cons

    The employee turnover is very high for an environment classified as professional. Greater than a 100% turnover in the past year, from high level executives to the entry level employee. AOTMP has never taken responsibility for an employee leaving.

    Employees are micromanaged with a constant "big brother" approach. The superficial "parties" seem to be more out of obligation and show than for building a positive company culture. Day to day employees work in their cubicles separated from others by high walls creating a very silo-like atmosphere. There are very few people who actually sit next to a co-worker. The implication is that if you're close enough to communicate, you won't get your work done or you'll talk negatively about the company.

    Very "old school" mentality with regards to technology, dress code, and remote working. Technology is old, outdated, or non-existent. Dress code is business casual in a building where clients never visit. And 95% of the work is done from of an old computer or over the phone and could be done from anywhere in the world. It seems the only reason for inflexibility is a lack of trust with employees.

    There is a wide disconnect between sales and operation, and an even bigger disconnect between executive leadership and employees who actually work day to day with clients. For clients, there is very little value add to the products as most are a "Churn and Burn" or "What else can we charge them to do?" mentality. Products feel more like consecutive money scams with little to no long term value. There is very little focus on process improvement for current products. Product names seem to change quarterly to try and bolster excitement about the new, actually old, revamped, with no actual changes, product. There seems to be a "squirrel!" or "shiny object" mentality with products versus a focus on improvement with existing products. Most new products are re-hashed ideas of earlier failed attempts at implementation with typically the same result. Insanity?

    Advice to Management

    Advice has been given to management by a number of employees at multiple times including an employee engagement project. Nothing of substance was ever implemented from the feedback. If management wants to change the culture and the turnover, they need to take a serious look at who actually delivers their product and take care of those employees. An annual cleaning house of employees is a very poor business model and hurts continuity with clients and products alike. TRUST your employees! If you don't trust them, how are they to trust you? Show sincere appreciation for employees. Every employee activity seems forced, stale and scripted with very little buy-in from employees. Be approachable. Always set realistic expectations with employees and clients regarding products, product updates, projects, work schedules, timelines, and resources. There should never be "CYA" mentality with a client or an employee.

    Pros

    Small company in a convenient location. I really don't have much else positive to say.

    Cons

    Poor management. Leadership styles are very authoritarian and not inclusive.

    Advice to Management

    You don't have to breathe down employee's necks to get things done. Treat people with respsect.

    I worked at AOTMP full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Small enough company to negotiate what you need. Open door policy to HR b/c it's the owner! LOL (There is a problem behind that whole concept.) Alpha Owner isn't in the office much, but the office manager/co-owner/HR/"you don't know what you're going to get personality" is mostly in the office.

    Cons

    You feel all warm and fuzzy when you first arrive, but then you start seeing things that don't line up. Communication that is secretive and you feel out of the loop. Questions that no one can answer or then changing the answer to fit that void. Praises about making all this money in the past but no one knows how to get there. It's all a mystery or they have done so poorly in the past serving their large clients they don't want to do anymore business whatsoever with them. Also making statements that they don't want to make over a certain amount of money b/c they don't want to pay those taxes is a red flag when you are on the sales staff trying to make SOME money and nothing is working. Too much emphasis on the sales rep "cracking the code" when the owners don't even have a clue of how business works these days. The biggest problem I have with this small company is the cowardliness ways they took in letting the employees know that they were eliminating a whole department and terminating those folks. And because the PTO is so shotty you will get this information via email instead of in person. They do not truly care about their employees. It is all a what can you do for me type of environment. They also are the most passive aggressive people I have worked for which is not a positive work environment especially when you work for a department that is failing not because of lack of effort, but because of no direction on what success looks for in a Telecom environment.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of masking the problems dig deeper and know the true problems of the industry and the weird work environment. You can't run a small company successfully by acting like you have this huge corporation and not take anyone's advice on how to make it better. Stop focusing on the stupid rules and get to know what makes your employees have pride in their careers which makes the work environment better and the successes that much more meaningful.

    I worked at AOTMP full-time

    Pros

    Good pay... I need a 20 word minimum so I am filling up space with words that mean nothing because I've said the only pro this company offers.

    Cons

    Toxic culture, no transparency, no encouragement to work collaboratively, extremely poor leadership, no opportunity to succeed... Need I say more?

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your own way, stop continuing to make the same mistakes over and over again... Seems to be some commonalities in the posts on this thread, I'd start paying attention rather than encouraging current employees to post positive messages to attempt the cover up.

    Pros

    The owners are caring and driven for success. The employee events are fun and very thoughtful. The management team is making a difference on any previous issues the company has faced with culture. The products have an absolute sweet spot within the telecom industry and offer a ton of value to clients.

    Cons

    If employees are looking to slack off and not make an impact - then they are exited quickly. This can be a con for those employees, but for the rest of us that work hard and care this is actually a pro.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what makes this place great!

    I worked at AOTMP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The environment is constantly challenging. Very customer driven. Very lean. As an employee you have an opportunity to make a real impact and to be creative. I worked with some very smart and interesting people.

    Cons

    There is no roadmap because the priorities are constantly changing thus you must be very reactive. Employees are not viewed as valuable resources that build a competitive advantage for the company. An example of this is that an employee engagement process was initiated and not only were the very reasonable suggestions ignored, but they were mocked. These were legitimate, soft benefit suggestions that would have made the company more competitive with regards to talent and would have made existing employee base feel more involved. The result of this is that there's very little passion because ultimately you feel you don't matter.

    Advice to Management

    While the executives and many employees are very smart, I don't see how the company can grow and thrive unless the emotional intelligence and self awareness evolve. As a small company that may not offer the highest salary or best benefits they must change their environment to be more competitive.
