    Great company to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPay was good and worked in a remote location and there was no micromanagement.

    ConsYou have a large workload and will work more than your 40 hours a week

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't just look at numbers when trying to distribute work load. There is more than numbers to tell how busy a person can be.

    Flexibility and Development Opportunities

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI have been incredibly lucky to work here. I have been given the most awesome development opportunities! Contech really does care and invest in my professional development and I can't say how much I appreciate this. My schedule is also flexible when there are personal items I need to take care of. My department and supervisor are fantastic - I really appreciate my relationship both personally and professionally with all of them. All in all I love working for this company and look forward to seeing what the future holds here.

    ConsI don't have any complaints about Contech.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think the highest level of Management is pretty disconnected with the employees. It would go far if they would get more involved or at least aware of what happens lower in the organization.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It's a great time to be at Contech

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    West Chester, OH

    ProsTalented people, flexible work schedules, plenty of development opportunity, excellent benefit programs and competitive pay in a safe culture with dedicated employees.

    ConsLean times and recession tightened the belt for the company over the last 5 years creating heavier work loads for employees and anxiety regarding the company's financial security. As a result morale is still suffering.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have gotten the company through the most difficult times but keep weathering what's left of the storm! Employees want to hear regularly from Management so even if the news is bad - deliver it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great People

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsExcellent training and development opportunities as well as good pay and/benefits. I have a great work life balance. I also like the fact the company is environmentally focused not only with its products believes in getting involved and giving back to the local community with programs such as Earth Day volunteer activities. Employees are paid for their time while working on service projects of their choice.

    ConsMatrixed organization can create challenges such as limited communication. This can problems and bottlenecks when the right people aren't involved in a project or a decision.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide more transparency and consistent communication across the organization. You seem to be doing some good things but many employees have no clue.

    Contech has weathered some extremely tough conditions and markets and is positioned for success. Its good to be here.

    Director (Current Employee)
    Cincinnati, OH

    ProsConstant opportunity to learn. Flexibility in managing day to day responsibilities. Our engineers are some of the smartest people I have worked with. Our products are used worldwide and help solve many infrastructure and ecological challenges. People I work with like what they are working on - they are dedicated professionals. For most part benefits and pay are competitive.

    ConsLittle constrained by resources. Sometimes don't get enough information about how we are doing as a company. Because of market a lot of change has been necessary and sometimes a bit much to absorb.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend money wisely and where necessary

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good Learning Experience for an Intern

    Intern (Former Employee)
    Linthicum, MD

    ProsWide range of areas of work: (Wastewater and stormwater treatment, retaining walls, piping, infiltration systems, precast bridges) The travel is not bad and most projects are located within a 25 mile radius.

    ConsLow pay. Lots of free engineering and takeoffs are done for clients; however, the company is not compensated for this, unless a Contech product is incorporated into the design.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward Employees more
