    Psycho Technologies Inc.

    Help Desk (Current Employee)
    Lombard, IL

    ProsThere's no pros here at this company.

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Anonymous victim of the Column Culture what a waste of time

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Downers Grove, IL

    ProsGreat Training and useful tools for sucess

    ConsNo consistent processes, High Turnover, Poor leadership and mangement especially in Downers Grove.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt'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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great place if you enjoy working for a sociopath

    Survivor (Current Employee)
    Downers Grove, IL

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
