    Pros

    The industry is fun. Can not come up with another reason. Small company so you can know everybody soon. Sunny location.

    Cons

    The structure is messy. Not efficient. The management is not approachable and not open to employees but demanding in their way. If you are looking for career growth, it will waste your time staying here. No perks. No generous PTO. People are leaving.

    Pros

    Lots of parking in a picturesque background of San Bruno mountain. Opportunity to ride bike around the mountain, hike the mountain, or run on the nearby trail. Company gives phone to certain employees. Compensation tends to be good.

    Cons

    Old management was a mess and toxic, now the new management is an investment firm. They've brought in all the consultants and have extremely high expectations of its employees, with unrealistic deadlines. There is no stopping to smell the flowers and they really do not career about career progression or happiness. This used to be where people would go to die, but now it's a whole new ballgame and you better be on your toes or else you WILL get the axe.

    People are NOT happy here. Think twice when interviewing or accepting a job here.

    "ATP knows where it wants to go and the path seems bright, but the obstacles in the way are self made"

    Pros

    ATP is a smallish company where everyone knows everyone. The company allows, if not encourages employee sponsored parties and get-togethers, the company even throws a few itself. The benefits are pretty good as well with medical, dental, decent 401K with a financial planner on the books to help out if you want the advice.

    Cons

    The turnover rate of some of the upper management positions seem to be high these past couple of years. This does not bode well for morale in the troops overall.

    It seems when a person does exceptional at something, even shows initiative and imagination, the company responds by giving a small bonus, an awards paper, and a pat on the head. Then back to work as normal. Even despite encouragement from middle management, promotions and advancement seem to be out of reach.

    ATP does not pay well. Well below what other companies pay similar positions. If you are looking for mindless temp-work, this is a great place to start (if it is available).

    While the company is *trying* to update itself technologically, many key systems are still stuck in the 90s. These key systems are crucial to the production line and even with continuous hassles from the people who have to work with the system, there are no plans (which I am aware of) to update.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people who you employ. Middle management can only do so much before more resources are required from you.
