Investing in more of business development would help in raising profile of the company which has some nice products.

    I have been working at Amtel (California) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People are nice to work with. It is a very flat organization with top management interacts with almost everyone. In past places I worked, there were few engineers who were treated well, everyone else was just there. Here almost everyone gets chance to work on good projects. Employee churn is very low as you feel special being part of the organization.

    Cons

    It is a fast growing company, get ready to work hard. There is lot of new ideas exchanged but it takes time to execute them.

    Advice to Management

    I see this management as very hands-on because both founders are engineers. The internal drive is to make easy to use products. I have seen sometimes CEO gets down to the product details.

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

    Pros

    easy going environment whichcan be a breeding ground of growth and success

    Cons

    the breeding ground is destroyed by people who take advantage of you, treat you like servants, and try to pit one against the other. saw some grade A talent come in the door, couldnt make magic happen in 90 days and went on to realize the greatest day at Amtel was the last day

    Advice to Management

    people are not your servants, treat them like family.

    This is a former employee who worked here and was let go from the company because of bad performance. He wouldn't change even after multiple warnings. He keeps coming back to add something negative... More
