Amazing place to work, constantly learn, and make a difference.

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA

I have been working at CEI full-time for more than a year

ProsCompensation is excellent, vacations and benefits are also. Coming onboard was a great decision. Here you are surrounded by true industry-leading talent, who are hard-working and very successful. Working in this kind of environment empowers me to always learn more, to become more efficient, and to do whatever it takes to perform at my best. Management is always approachable and professional.

ConsThere are no cons to list.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing!

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

Horrible company to work, H1 visa people should stay away

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at CEI full-time

ProsOnly good thing is pay on time.

ConsNo job security. They layoff people once project is over. They revoke the visa for H1 people within one day notice. They don't care about whether the employee GC is in process. Very less client pool.

Advice to Senior ManagementCare about employees also. They are the source of income along with client.

Outstanding experience! Joining CEI is the best decision I made.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at CEI full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI work with very smart, hard-working, personable, and successful people. They are the backbone of the company. Management is very approachable. I have a super boss! I couldn't imagine working for anyone else. CEI is a stable, growing company with a bright future. The Microsoft Solutions Division is outstanding with a low turn over rate. Current Rookie Partner of the Year for the East Coast---quite an accomplishment.

ConsI have no cons to list.

CEI has one of the best screening processes in the staffing industry

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA

I have been working at CEI full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe staffing industry can be a meat grinder. The management at CEI has changed dramatically in the last few years and they will make CEI the company to work at if you want to do staffing...we already have a great process to offer our clients. Staffing is a great way to start out your career in a number of fields and CEI trains and cultivates its people under the new management.

ConsCEI is in the middle of this evolution. But 90% of enjoying your job, is working for a great boss...and that can outweigh the challenges.

Fake reviews posted by company guys.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at CEI full-time for less than a year

ProsNothing that you can really talk about.

ConsAll good reviews are fake. They tell you project of year when project is of 2 months.
Cut your salary. Will look. For chance to reduce salary. No long term projects. This is to help so that people will not get fooled by goody chats of hr and let them know. you are ruining career of people

Advice to Senior ManagementAt least don't provide fake reviews. It's last thing company can do.

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