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

    Pros

    Facility is state of the art - Environment very friendly. The lounges are very Silicon Valley type. Management recognizes talent and tries to work the best to support.

    Cons

    Recent reorg under the director has created a bit of a challenge to adjust. I guess it is work in progress. In all fairness, Management is making an attempt to listen and adjust accordingly. Quality and knowledge of supporting team personal, has room for improvement.

    Pros

    Great location if you live downtown. Great company to work for Gogo really wants you to succeed. Lots of future advancements within other departments.

    Cons

    There is a very steep learning curve to working in the AMCC. If there was a little more structured training once you first start that would make a significant improvement.
