    I worked at Adams Thermal Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    At that time the business was growing very fast. Could not keep up with demand so many capital projects to work on.

    Cons

    Would not pull the trigger on all of the needed project to raise capacity to meet demand. Shortcuts were taken and quality suffered.

    Advice to Management

    Safety and quality are the first 2 goals that need to be met prior to increasing production. Capacity planning is must do for growing businesses.

    Pros

    As of now, sincerely enjoy working at this company. At work I also enjoy exceeding expectations, maximizing productivity, building quality, and completing goals. Everyday I learn something new and "level up" as I gain valuable experiences from Anything and Everything I encounter at ATS. I prefer "solo" work mainly because it is much easier to maintain focus without being distracted/disrupted. Some days I do have to work with others and I've met a diverse range of coworkers.

    Cons

    You are in constant exposure to chemicals and hazardous materials because it is a manufacturing facility. An unfortunate and unusual event took place at the company resulting in OSHA raiding the place and adding a multitude of fines. Manufacturing processes could also use improvement. Quality and production could also improve if workers had adequate growth oriented support.

    Advice to Management

    As a concerned employee of ATS I would like to see this company recover, grow, and flourish. What will make us flourish again as a company? I am not exactly sure yet. But we could start with upper management working closer with production workers and promoting a growth mindset to improve quality and production perhaps. Honestly I am just signing up for this website because I want to read what other people have posted out of curiosity when stumbling upon this website lol.

    Participate in charitable activities through its not for profit foundation called Adams Thermal Systems Foundation (ATF) to alleviate poverty locally, nationally and internationally.

    I have been working at Adams Thermal Systems for more than 5 years. I have started working at the production floor as a production associate and worked my way in to current management role. ATS gave me an opportunity to do my intern while I was going to college and subsequently grow in to a professional job and best carrier growth opportunity. I was given great amount of freedom and responsibility, with essentially no micromanagement from superiors. I was trusted to do quality work, and made to feel like a contributor in my team. Another plus was that I was given a wide array of responsibilities, allowed to move to different departments which enabled me to learn and grow in various fields. I have learnt different processes and management systems that I have never learnt in my college education.
    I highly recommend ATS for job seekers because they not only provide stable employment but they offer educational and training opportunities to develop your skills.

    Cons

    I have no cons to share. I have great experiance

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work
