  1. "Average"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Atlas Material Testing Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I would say a good Work-life balance, a nice new office in the Chicago suburbs, and the company doesn't seem too agressive

    Cons

    Seems to be in cost cutting mode, not sure I feel the employees are really "in it to win it" more than "in it until I get out of it"

    Advice to Management

    Develop new products which get people excited, provide better incentive plans to get people charged and focus more on human resources to improve employees growth within the company

    I worked at Atlas Material Testing Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Freedom of work because of small size of the company. Get to know everyone and can be in direct contact with top management. Average pay scale.

    Cons

    Compare to industry standards, low pay scale. Not stable management and ownership.

    I have been working at Atlas Material Testing Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fresh building in great location with park like setting for lunch time walks
    Approachable managers
    Work force goes for perfection and takes pride in it
    Good team spirit

    Cons

    Part of larger corporation which means both good and on occasion bad. Used to be closer to down town. If you don't live close and have an 8-5 position, traffic on the highways can be a little too much

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Employees are very friendly, approachable, and willing to help
    While there is hierarchy the structure is relatively flat so its easy to approach everyone
    Small team leads to exposure to many aspects of the company

    Cons

    Loss of staff has led to loss of product knowledge.
    No willingness or ability to replace staff has led to overworked individuals
    No professional development, room for growth, or people to learn from.
    Need to "get it done" takes precedent over "doing it right"

    Advice to Management

    Grow your staff its a necessity and not a nice to have
    Recognize why people are leaving and take corrective action
    Develop your talent

    Pros

    Small company. Access to superiors. Ability to wear multiple hats.

    Cons

    Understaffed. Too much needs to "get done," not enough professional development or ability to work on interesting projects. Very tight pockets.

    Pay your talent, grow your talent, keep your talent.

    Pros

    A small to mid sized company that has room to grow, and is not highly structured. So it's easier to get things done quickly. You get to know people quickly in the company because of its small size. Vacation days left over can be roll over to next year (40 hours limit).

    Cons

    Less structured means many times people don't follow good business practices. Quality of work is low. Many managers are not competent for what they're in charge.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of employees the 1st priority and then company profits. Reward your employees and make them feel they are assets of company.
