    I have been working at ATC Associates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Many of my coworkers are friendly and out going. Professional in their approach to work and mostly helpful.

    Cons

    There are a few 'chosen few' that keep a hidden face of upper management hidden and dangerous to the success of motivated employees. Several of these gate keepers use the tactic of bait and switch and have built a culture of design to fail by with holding metrics of expectations. Telling you one way to succeed which is just the opposite.

    Advice to Management

    There is none to give. Management does not listen to the rank and file. To add insult there is no procedure to air grievances or problems.

    I have been working at ATC Associates full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you are dependable & trustworthy to take care of responsibilities you are not micro managed

    Cons

    Discrimination and harassment not taken seriously.
    Employees not recognized for job done well.
    Project are bid low be awarded the job with budgets too low to perform quality work.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house in Atlanta office and start over with new mission statement to appreciate the employee who are out in the field making money for the company. Employee morale is about as low as it can get and field performance reflects it.
    Companies notice the standard of quality going to hell and word gets around that ATC no longer values providing clients with knowledgeable experienced technicians to oversee their projects.
    ATC needs to take action NOW while still salvageable.

    Pros

    High turn over so you can move up quickly.

    Cons

    Will not tell you the truth during interview process to get you in. Slow periods you must take unpaid time off. They do not tell you any of this during the interview, they will tell you that your a 40 hour a week employee and finding you work is their problem but in the end it's your problem. Also use up any vacation before you quit, they will steal that from you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking 2hr lunches and smoking. Upper management the joke of the entire place.

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

    Pros

    Professional reputation drew me to the company. Business chaos seemed to be a problem. Upper management appeared to be in control and ready to move forward in a positive way.

    Cons

    Lots of marginally legal methods of calculating hours and changing employee time sheets without informing employee or clarifying after the fact.
    Resignation process was demeaning and very unprofessional. Final calculation of pay not done correctly. Given the choice to wait for a corrected pay check or cash the one delivered by snail mail rather than electronically deposited. Started working when GD rating was almost a 4 and dropped in a year to near 2. Unless you are desperate for a job, keep looking.

    Advice to Management

    Can't give advice to someone who doesn't want to listen. New management choices will be a liability for future employees.

    Pros

    A small company with few employees all very nice. Company vehicles available. Individual and team work environment. Travel and overtime.

    Cons

    Lots of driving and sometime equipment needed. Heavy work load in the summer. Working in hot and the cold weather.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more training classes, more advancement opportunities and more recognition. Stop with the takovers, buyouts and changing of company name.

    Pros

    I have experienced nice menagment. You have one hour brake for lunch. Work started at 8 am and was finishing at 5 pm.

    Cons

    Lunch unpaid. There was no chance to grow, any chance for promotion. Not to much contact with people, dealing with computer.

    Advice to Management

    I suggest to socialize more often with the employees, talk to them more often and ask if they need something.

    Pros

    You can work by yourself in the field without being micro managed.

    Cons

    Upper Management is unaware or unable to deal with any internal issues. Benefits skyrocketed this year. Same standards are not applied to all employees. No career advancement or opportunities for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Quit.
