I have been working at Logic Technology full-time (less than an year)Pros
There are many negative reviews regarding vacation, benefits and company policy and being a current employee can not help but laugh at them.
-Vacation from day one. The reviews that mention that it is only two weeks are correct, they however fail to mention that there are 4 additional floating holidays (awarded one a quarter to use anytime in the year) as well as floating holiday for your birthday. That is 3 weeks of paid leave a year that only increases with additional years of service. There are eight additional paid holidays as well.
-Salary and Benefits. Did I accept a lower salary than I would have received from other employers, YES. However I did so with a complete understand of the AMAZING BENEFIT package that I would be receiving and would be 100% funded by LTI. Every doctor I have seen or needed to see has been covered at a $10 copay and I have yet to find one that has not been shocked at the coverage I have. If out of network, which is rare, there is a $250 individual and $500 family annual deductible. Most Rx are $5. Should you be planning a family there is an initial $10 copay for the first OBGYN visit and after that everything is covered 100% (Doctor, Hospital, EVERYTHING). If you have a family, add up what the following from another employer; premium paid by yourself, premium paid by the employer and the yearly deductible and copays - this is why the salaries at LTI seem lower, but in reality the benefits I receive have the potential to be worth 10-20k a year.
-Sick Time, although there is no set time it is available. It will however be monitored if abused.
-The BENCH/BEACH policy is legit. If they do not have a desk to put you at on a current contract you remain an employee with 100% pay and 100% benefits until they place you in a new position.
- Quarterly lunches and as far as the Cincinnati office goes it is at an amazing restaurant.
- I can only speak for the Cincinnati office, but 90% of the time we have one day a week where lunch is provided to those working 1st shift. It is catered in the office and there is no skimping in any way - always plenty of food and it is always good.
- Bonus for any referrals that lead to direct hires. $1,500 (after taxes) is paid for anyone referral that is hired and remains with LTI for 3 months.Cons
- LTI is lacking in assisting their employees to save for retirement, there is no 401k match or profit sharing.
- The chance of being moved from contract to contract. This can happen with little to no notice and the new project/contract can come with a steep learning curve.
- Set/Assign a set amount of sick time and comp with a bonus if it is not used. I would rather know the set amount instead of using vacation out of fear of sick time use being monitored.
- There is a work from home policy that is fairly strict for 1st shift employees, however if there is a special circumstance permission is almost always granted. 2nd and 3rd shift primarily all work remotely.
- Unwritten Non-Compete / I was completely unaware of any non-compete until I began the process of referring a friend that work for one of LTI's biggest competitors. However they seem much more wiling to allow employees to leave the company for these competitors than they are to try to bring someone on from one of them.Advice to ManagementAdvice
- Slackers, there are people at the company that feel entitled because they have XYZ title or certification. Let the work your employees do be the determining factor in the responsibility and ensuing salary that they receive.
- In house training (lunch and learns) would be great.
- Managers need to understand all aspects of the contracts that they are placing employees on. They may not need to know directly how to do the tasks but they should know what the tasks are.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

The process took a day – interviewed at Logic Technology in April 2011.Interview Details
Two interviews, one with the Director of HR, one with the Account VP. I was previously known to the onsite contract lead so that wasn't an issue for me, but if you're coming in fresh you will have to talk to them as well. The work culture is a little ossified (no jeans on Fridays, no telecommuting regardless of the client's preferences) and there are the typical pitfalls of working with a small company that depends mainly on one large client.
If you can speak intelligently about the kind of work you do and a couple of awesome things you've accomplished, you're in like Flynn. There are no trick questions or obnoxious Microsoft-type brain teasers.Interview QuestionsNegotiation DetailsLTI calculates your salary and benefits based on total compensation; make sure you do your math beforehand and bring your spreadsheet to the bargaining table if need be. Medical benefits are very nice and paid 100% but there is no 401k contribution matching.Accepted OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
