    I have been working at Column Technologies, Inc. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There's no pros here at this company.

    Cons

    You will be make a huge mistake if you want to put the cloud keyword with Column Technologies Inc. If you have a choice between 2 jobs, run very fast from this company. This place has a high turnover rate and the CEO has knowledge of this and encourages it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a psychiatrist, find another job in another company overseas, or I don't think you would like some of the others.

    I was hired in April 2013 and lost my job in July 2013 due to lack of training for products I was supposed to support.

    I worked at Column Technologies, Inc. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great Training and useful tools for sucess

    Cons

    No consistent processes, High Turnover, Poor leadership and mangement especially in Downers Grove.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a waste of time and money to train people that you know that you are going to keep and you know that your managers may get rid of just because they are the flavor of the month. Skilled invdividuals should be given an opportunity to perform sucessfully. Unforntunately, if your mangers are taking relationships personal and only catering to those that buy lunch that could interfere greatly.

    Current Employee - Survivor in Downers Grove, IL

    I have been working at Column Technologies, Inc.

    Pros

    If you can survive a year at Column, you can survive ten years in a normal organization.

    Cons

    There is a senior manger who fits the clinical definition of a workplace sociopath. His employees so hate him that open hostility in his departments in rampant. As a long-time friend of the owner, his boorish, crude, and hostile behavior is tolerated. He berates coworkers in front of others and blames everyone but himself for his failings on a regular basis

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire this senior manager and hire competent upper management, rather than family and friends into critical positions.
