    Pros

    The Benefits were good for a company of this size

    The senior leadership in this company don't have grasp of the market and the needs of their customers. They try to lead by intimidation and bully their employees. I was yelled, cussed at and threatened several time for presenting ideas to help increase business with the customers,

    rush the management team into retirement and hire more forward thinking professionals who value their employees

    Pros

    Decent benefits, decent promotion options. I have a good manager that does not fit into the category of most of the reviews on here.

    Cons

    There are some, but what company does not. Yes pay is substandard, and stress is high but again most companies are in this category lately. Training is not what it should be, there is no trainer that ensures what is learned before you are on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Please evaluate the managers in the organization and reorganize with some. Some people have been with the company too long and just don't have it in them anymore, they are just collecting their paycheck and taking your money.

    Pros

    I understand some of the negative reviews seen on this website in the past. I believe most of them to be generated by personnel lacking the drive to go out and get what you want. Instead i believe the frustration stems from not having opportunity handed to them.

    Freedom to make your own choices and salary on par with industry standards.

    Cons

    Lean work environment, at some point Investment will be needed to expand support to help free up time to for the sales team to do what they do. Sell. Parking lot could use a little more room as well. Oh and the water in the fountains is hard water. I would be nice fi the employees were provided an alternative.

    Advice to Management

    Growth is amazing and always good. In a fast paced environment reinvesting in the infrastructure that supports such growth is a requirement.

    Pros

    No pros to this organization

    Cons

    If you're a woman, do not apply here. The office is entirely bullied by men who think they are smarter than every single woman that exists. I've heard conversation that would make you cringe and want to throw up. Women are talked at like they are idiots and the men are praised for doing nothing. Outside my cube, I literally heard upper management scream about a woman in the company that he wanted to take her down and called her names. It was so scary that all of us talked to Human Resources about it and they didn't do a thing. Get ready to ave orders barked at you and the constant berating of who you are. I've seen so many disgusting situations that this website probably couldn't hold the amount of writing I would need to do. I've seen women cry and called idiots and left out of really important information. But the men get all they need to succeed. I'm totally shocked that this company hasn't been in trouble with the law. I hear that the owner is part of the problem because he encourages this stuff. Steve Wang (if he cares about women at all) needs to remove all the management and start over. Being yelled at and having too much to do all the time is a hostile work environment and plain old sad.

    Advice to Management

    Actually care about women rights and the law. Clean the building because it's nasty and smells like puke or rotten eggs. Stop lying to employees and fix the problems you have created instead of pretending that they don't exist.

    Pros

    MAT will provide an opportunity to enter the corporate environment so one can gain experience and move on with your own professional career. The position here will return what you personally put in. Hands off where one can learn and grow with motivation and will to professionally develop themselves.

    After reading some reviews I truly believe that since this company can be reactive at times, some employees cannot handle high-speed decision making. This is why I think some have a negative outlook. From my 2 years of being employees, I have had to stay self-motivating and have strived to move up.

    Cons

    Water issue should be addressed. This could be done with investing in a water filter system.
    The building does need to be updated and leave the old cubicle system.
    Septic system issue should be addressed, some days it can be smelled throughout the building.
    There could be a better training process for new employees.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in actual team building and check performance. There are some team members who are solely operating to cover their own behinds and make themselves look good. Grow teams to continue serving customers better and managing our products better.
