    I have been working at ATA Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Gave me a job when my former industry would not. Stay out of my way, mostly. Appreciate my employment.

    Cons

    They are about filling a body into a specification. They are not about how to improve the contract sites processes or business. But I suspect that this standard across the Gov Contract Business.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice. Things work as they should and are expected to work. Be more competitive against the myriad of other Gov Contracting Co.s?

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

    Pros

    Very casual atmosphere, manager came in shorts and a t shirt most days. Flexible work hours. Very small company, everyone gets to wear lots of hats.

    Cons

    Owner and sr. management don't always communicate what the current strategy is going to be. There are always plenty of good ideas, sometimes it's hard to know which good idea is being pursued today. Projects are often assigned and started only to be abandoned without notifying the person or people working on the project.

    Advice to Management

    Nepotism got its own name because it's usually a bad idea.

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

    Pros

    The only way to get on at ATA is to know one of the principals. The tech that work in the field seem to stay with the company for a long time.

    Cons

    If you work in the business office the expectations are unclear and keeping the customer happy isn't as important as keeping the owner from meeting someone he thinks might do a better job in your position.

    Advice to Management

    It's my company I can do what I want, is a philosophy that only appeals to other business owners, it does nothing to motivate employees.
