    I worked at Amtel (California) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get thrown right into the fire so to speak, so it's up to you whether you want to embrace the fast paced and demanding job requirements or not. Rewarding experience and excellent people to network and work with.

    Cons

    Training for new employees could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps an advice to management where employees can voice their opinions and insights anonymously.

    I worked at Amtel (California) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This place has been a blessing for me because I have learned about mobile security and app management which has allowed me to build a new career. I am now doing independent consulting work.

    The management has been very cooperative & I still interact with them. I have direct access to CEO & other executives who have a very technical forwarding looking perspective on building the company. I enjoyed my stay there.

    Cons

    Not too many. I could get more money at google or facebook but the trade off is if I would get access to such a breadth of mobile technology.

    Advice to Management

    Keep that good relaxed environment at the company as you scale it up
