Pros

Flexible work schedules, and friendly staff

Cons

Not equiped to handle and manage laboratory staff. No room for advancement nor growth within the company. All Laboratory staff are at-will employees and have no stock options. Government contractor who's contract will end shortly leaving hundreds of staff without jobs

Advice to Management

Nothing management can do for contracted staff, other employing them as permanent staff.

    I worked at A-Tek full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company offers a nice salary, as long as you negotiate well. Also, the staff has great team work and it is like a family environment.

    Cons

    Management is very poor. There are no management training. It's just scientist who are either grandfathered in or know the right people. HR is the same way. No one has the laboratory staff back. Also overworked, due to weekends and holidays. There is no growth unless you plan to move to another state.

    Advice to Management

    Take management training classes. Also, help staff out when it gets super busy and short staffed. Take accountability for your mistakes and actions.
