I worked at Ctl Engineering full-time for less than a yearPros
I really liked my co-workers at this company while they were around (A lot of people quit here (usually in less that 1 year)).
I also really liked our clients while they were around (Until the company decided to offend them and provide them with poor quality work (making them unhappy and not want to use us)).Cons
I will refer to the management of this company in this review, because as I said (in Pros) the co-workers were for the most part fine.
*Philosophy: This company, to say the least, does not value it's employees. They make this point known by openly explaining how "employees are not irreplaceable". Fear tactics are often used to keep people from quitting (talking about how much worse other companies are). There are a few members of the management that spend the entire day reading employees emails and monitoring their computer usage (and then tell employees this). This creates a state of paranoia within the office to the point that co-workers told me that they thought the company was reading their texts on their personal cell phones (and I have to admit I thought this too). You WILL be UNDERPAID at this company! Clients: Beware this also! A company that treats employees like this can screw you over if their entire staff quits while working on your projects (Which has happened at least 2 times at CTL!(entire team quitting)).
* Women: Women are definitely treated differently then men (again, to say the least: rudely and disrespectfully to say the most!). This unequal treatment is observed by both men and women at the company (Several people had brought it up to me in addition to my own observations).
* Drama: The most important thing to the upper management at CTL! They would sacrifice great clients just to cause drama in the office. Some actions included gossiping about employees to other employees, lying, intentionally turning employees against one another for the fun of it? ( I know this sounds bizarre. It is! I have no way to justify why that would be true, but it's what I observed)
* Quality of Work: Because the nature of this company is to get employees for as cheap as possible, they don't have many "skilled/specialized" employees. The ones that they are able to get don't stick around for long. Clients: know that due to cheapness of the upper management, under staffing, and exploitation of employees, this company completes projects slowly, sometimes poorly, and is inconsistent because of how high the turn over rate is.
I could really go on for hours about all of the cons I observed, but I think that this should at least give anyone a good idea of what it would be like to work for this company.
***I can safely say that this description accurately describes the ENVIRONMENTAL division of this company (Although I can't imagine that the others are much better...).Advice to ManagementAdvice
*Invest in your employees. -As cheap as you are, you should at least realize the benefit in keeping your employees happy or at least satisfied.
* Clean House! - There are some pretty worthless people in upper management positions at this company (and I think everyone knows who they are). These people are not only causing you to loose clients, money, and employees, but also, your reputation.Doesn't RecommendNegative Outlook
