And that is the main reason why “Passion for Excellence” can be seen everywhere in ATEN. Our ATENers hold themselves to high standards of quality in their work, and always endeavor to do it more efficiently, but without the shortcuts that affect value and quality. Here we provide 3 role models:
Passion for Persistence
Passion for Persistence - Zack Huang, Assistant Manager, Software Department 1, ATEN
Zack is well-known at ATEN for his ability to create momentum based on his ultimate goal of getting things done. For example, he was once assigned to do a public presentation. He wasn’t a natural communicator, but like Steve Jobs, he practiced for weeks before his presentation to prepare himself. His “get-things-done” attitude also applies to his daily life. As a software expert, he even optimizes the data generated from video games by analyzing their algorithms to make his gaming performance better.
