    Pros

    Diversity of the roles and the purpose of their company are great.

    Cons

    Very poorly managed in breaking out of their own Groupthink. Not lean, not interested in true efficiency. Culture is from 1970.

    Advice to Management

    Need to break up the Gold ole Boy network of people from the utility business and run it like public sector - for profit company. Desperately need to operate to low cost.

    I have been working at American Transmission Co. full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    To me, the best part about ATC is the employees. I enjoy the culture and I feel like I am part of a winning team. The benefits are great; 401K, pension, vacation, sick/personal days, paid holidays, etc. The company provides leadership training and team workshops for new leaders and managers. People are consistently promoted from within the company. Even when the workload can get heavy, I enjoy going to work every day and feel like I am respected and appreciated.

    Cons

    With multiple locations the offices do not always have the same feel and culture but it is always being improved upon.

    Advice to Management

    Continue improving communication across the company and keep promoting from within. It is important to work with people who enjoy what they do and while I feel that in my current team I'd like to see it continue across departments. Value diversity in prior work experiences and keep training/educating current staff so they grow with the company.

    Pros

    ATC truly cares about their employees. ATC offers a professional environment, competitive salaries and benefits, growth opportunities, and many soft perks.

    Cons

    At ATC, employees are expected to work hard; however, they are also well rewarded for their time and energy. Work hard; play hard.

    Advice to Management

    Employees appreciate the "open door" policy that is consistently upheld across middle and senior leadership. The level of transparency is foundational to the wonderful culture offered by ATC.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, great retirement and health benefits, good and constant communication from management. It is clear that members of the leadership team have take lessons from Performance Management courses because they implement those practices in the office. There is certainly a team mindset in most of the different groups I have worked with and an emphasis to hire people that are great team members.

    Cons

    There is not much diversity in terms of ethnicity and age.
