Why Consider A-TEK?

“A-TEK has proven to be an exceptional employer. Along with my amazing client project, I feel genuinely respected and supported by A-TEK. I feel consistently rewarded for my performance in terms of compensation and recognition, and my family work / life balance needs have always been met. While they never micromanage me, A-TEK leadership still provides the support I need. In addition, A-TEK also offers more paid time off than most other places I’ve worked, so I’m never worried about needing a sick day, scheduling a childcare appointment, or adequate vacation leave. This makes a big difference in my overall quality of life. “

“As a team supervisor, I love that A-TEK provides both the structure and support necessary for us to create a rewarding work culture that strives to maximize productivity yet minimize stress.  We share a vision and follow a mission by working with one another rather than against one another.  That seems like a simple concept but, in practice, it’s quite rare.  It couldn’t happen without an organization that fosters a certain amount of autonomy; we work hard every day to preserve that level of trust.”
