    I have been working at American Transmission 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.

    I have been working at American Transmission full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    I have been working at American Transmission full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    Pros

    Team work and great work atmosphere. Great benefits and the work life balance is amazing. I would recommend this company due to the great leadership at the executive level.

    Cons

    Due to the medium size of the company , Career advancement could somewhat be challenging but I think because ATC works as a team, any employee can also participate to the progress of the company.

    I have been working at American Transmission full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Coming from a previous utility sector job ATC maintains the slow and steady utility mantra. This is excellent for career stability and a core job focus. Depending on the particular group retirements have led to a somewhat younger work force which enables skill development and the ability to implement newer ideas. ATC has great oppurtunities to volunteer and offers lots of events for workers to attend.

    Cons

    More typical utility mindset and approach. Change is slow and incremental with very few shakeups to either policy or goals. Career advancement not based on seniority isn't spectacular unless you can leverage it with a department shift.

    Advice to Management

    Continue being open to feedback from surveys and implement those changes in more tangible ways.

    Pros

    ATC is tops among utilities, in nearly every way. Great reputation, great people solving real problems, great pay, great benefits, great office buildings, great environment, great place to live.

    Cons

    Internal policies regarding performance management tend to shift too often.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great track record. Stand behind your employees, and they won't let you down.

    Pros

    Great people, I was immediately made welcome and everyone is very willing to help you learn about the company and what you need to know to be successful in your career.

    Cons

    I really don't have any that I can articulate at this time, as I have only been with the company for about 10 months.

    Pros

    easy working environment, low pressure, can hardly loose a job.

    Cons

    hard workers do not get appreciated, if you are good at 'socialization', you can become a manager pretty fast. Most people have no goals or aspirations about the work. People spend more time talking/chatting than doing work. Minimum development opportunities.
