    I worked at Project Time & Cost, Inc. full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Projects were interesting, and often challenging.

    Cons

    When I first started, I worked in the forensic division, which has since been sold. We did forensic analysis after hurricanes Katrina and Rita (2005). We typically worked 70 and 80 hour weeks, were paid for 40 hour weeks. We were promised a large bonus at the end of the assignment, but the company manipulated the books so no bonus was paid. I am still angry about that.

    I moved to the cost estimating division, performed estimating and scheduling for the Department of Energy mostly. Lots of travel, some years was gone 50 weeks. The work was interesting, sometimes even challenging. For the first four years there was plenty of work, then the bottom started falling out. Eventually the company dropped from about 150 project controls personnel down to 50, at which point it was my turn to get terminated. Remarkably, they forgot to fire me the week of an all hands conference call, at which the CEO announced that the company had been forced to make some tough decisions, but everything was now OK. That call was on a Wednesday as I recall. Friday afternoon I was terminated. Pretty ugly.

    If you go to work for this company, understand that you are there as long as you are employed on a project, then you are dust. Negotiate the best salary, do not believe any promises of bonuses etc., only believe what is strictly on your paycheck. And keep your resume updated at all times, and in circulation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is ironic, I actually liked some of the upper management. I don't imagine recommending that management be honest with employees is very useful, certainly that has never been the policy at this company, at least after they were purchased by the investment group. No doubt the company is trying to primp itself so it can be sold off, and that would probably be the best thing that could happen.
