    Pros

    Good company that wants to care about employees, but doesn't. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    High turn over rates due to poor management. This company loses a lot of good employees due to their managers. Absolutely no respect for employees with the attitude of "if you don't like it, you can leave". Absolutely no training to help you improve your skills or even to understand how to do your job properly. Managers will blame employees for their mistakes so they don't get in trouble. When a complaint is made regarding management, the whole department will find out and nothing gets solved. You have complete access to work from home but will not be able to even during snow storms due to management not trusting employees to actually do their jobs from home.

    Advice to Management

    This company has great potential, but upper management really needs to take a look at their managers and realize where the issue lies. A lot of help leaves due to not being appreciated or even listened to. There are too many cliques where managers bad mouth their employees right in front of them.

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility, office environment, team building

    Cons

    Middle management lacks training, processes are very chaotic for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people because it is the next step in their career at ATC, not everyone has what it takes to be a manager even after training.
