    I worked at Altec Products full-time

    Pros

    Great people and great location.
    Free food, drinks and weekly team lunches.
    Good benefits including 401(k), med., dental, vision
    Committed to perpetual learning by offering certification courses, books, and exam cost repayment

    Cons

    Salary not competitive compared to very close tech hubs of Silicon Valley and Seattle.
    Always having to prove your worth, even for seasoned, successful employees.
    Really no way to move up the ladder unless you create your own success.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, take their advice and don't have such a stronghold on processes. Consider a more flexible work environment as you will ultimately have the best talent flock to tech hubs.

    I have been working at Altec Products full-time

    Pros

    Great work environment, team approach to gaining new customers. Being located in South Orange County doesn't hurt either! I would recommend Altec to any prospective employees.

    Cons

    The cons perhaps could be some things that are consistent with smaller businesses. The health benefits are pretty paltry and there is no management participation in 401K.

    Advice to Management

    Create a matching 401K plan.

    Pros

    Potential to be a really great company.

    Cons

    No executive leadership or direction provided to the staffers.

    Advice to Management

    Make a Plan and Share it with Employees. Keep them updated. Keep all the mid Managers on the same plan.
