    I worked at ATSC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked for ATSC and its earlier incarnations on multiple occasions. The 2 biggest pros are that I was quickly promoted to recognize good work, and got frequent bonuses and salary increases. I also really enjoyed working with most of my co-workers, and the managers at the time were very good.

    Cons

    I thought the company could have been a little more forward thinking than it was. We seemed to react a lot but not plan enough in advance.

    Advice to Management

    Try to minimize disruption to projects as much as possible even during corporate turmoil. Constant change can be difficult on employees and projects.

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

    Pros

    I worked for ATSC in McLean for a little over a year. I met a lot of smart and savvy professionals. I worked directly for the Owner/CEO, I really learned a lot about myself and how to become very successful. I truly enjoyed every one that I worked with, even my colleagues in the Mississippi Office. ATSC is extremely diverse and family oriented. And there wasn't ever a dull moment in the office. The CEO was very transparent and gave his employees nice Christmas presents and bonuses every year.

    Cons

    I lived in Washington DC so I didn't like the commute to McLean everyday. However; the company provided free coffee/tea and snacks to all of its employees. There was a lot of turnover in the McLean and Mississippi office however that is the norm for most small government defense contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be family oriented and transparent.

    Pros

    ATSC is a good place to work for a mid-sized government contractor. The new CEO will put them on the right track adn get them back to where they were.

    Cons

    There is nothing bad from my point of view. It would be nice if there was more communication from management.

    Advice to Management

    Communcate more with the employees as to the direction of the company.

    Pros

    Location in Tysons Corner is good, and many people are terrific to work with and spend time getting to know.

    Cons

    Significant turmoil, decisions made and changed without communication or regard for employees, undeveloped strategy, leadership vacuum all mostly resulting from constant changes to leadership team. Hopefully 2011 will mark a baseline in the leadership team so that planning, strategy, process and the rest can be contemplated.

    Advice to Management

    Know the business, take time to know the employees, develop a strategy, work with middle managers to develop a plan that is achievable...then lead, guide and support the plan (and middle managers trying to execute the plan).

    Communicate and show a little more to the worker who do the job on client site as that is core business.
