Pros

ATS paid well. That was the only good thing about working there.

Cons

The company is led by 2 brothers with diverging strategies and a grossly overblown sense of urgency. The urgency translates into tremendous resource shifts including people. There have been many cases of upper managers hired at great cost only to be fired in a matter of months. All this while the technical platform is shaky, at best.

Advice to Management

Find a direction then, stick with it. The red light camera is a great service when delivered properly; make that the best business you can before moving on to other products and services. You're flitting into lots of areas you aren't ready for and are unable to stand in. You also need to unload 1 brother and your outdated technology; running a business the size of ATS on an Access database... Really?

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    ATS as a company is great; on the cutting edge of traffic safety solutions
    Owners are extremely savvy, and actually sincerely care about the future of the business
    ATS has attempted successful team building in a few areas (like Operations), but fail miserably in the technical area

    Cons

    Shorts, flip flops and jeans are a standard dress code.
    It is not uncommon for a business meeting to be peppered with vulgar language and obsenities. In short, ATS lacks professionalism that most people are used to in a business environment.

    The management within IT and Operations is very immature (not to mention arrogant).
    Many of the Directors have never been managers before, let alone are able to "lead" effectively in a Senior position. But they micro manage very effectively
    Employees are not promoted, they must apply for jobs off the job board like anyone else off the street

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. "Smart" people do not always make great "leaders." Be the professional company you want to see in the future.
