Great company to get experience

Consultant II (Current Employee)
Birmingham, AL

I have been working at CTS (Computer Technology Solutions) full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat place to get experience. They promote many different types of training. They pay and give bonuses for certifications. The entry level positions are asked to learn about all major technologies we work with before focusing on their field.

ConsYou are a consultant, meaning sometimes you may be asked to travel to a client's site. Consultants sometimes work odd hours. Most days are the standard 8:30-5:30, but that may change due to deadlines or client obligations. If you do not know how to balance work and life without the standard 9-5 situation, this is not for you.
If you only want to do one thing and one thing only, this is not the place for you. They push you to make you more well rounded. QA people sometimes do a little development work and vise versa.

Advice to Senior ManagementUtilize the subjective factors more when considering people for promotion. Just because they met all pre-reqs for promotion does not mean they are ready.

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

There are many technological opportunities here with efforts rewarded.

Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
Birmingham, AL

I have been working at CTS (Computer Technology Solutions) full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI have been able to work within a large range of software development and business intelligence technologies (Microsoft, Informatica, Oracle). I can walk down the hall and discuss my weekend or work life with the CEO or any of the upper management. Bosses seem to actually care how the stress of current projects relates to an employee. The company has a "do your job well, and you will be rewarded well" attitude.

ConsFor my current position, there is nothing about which I can complain. Any "perceptions" about management or leadership would not be based on direct fact and therefore not relevant. I am happy with my career here.

Advice to Senior ManagementShare more information and efforts downstream to prepare roles close to future leadership. Get employees more involved in community projects and charities in order to increase a sense of "worth."

CTS Review

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Birmingham, AL

I have been working at CTS (Computer Technology Solutions)

ProsCTS is an awesome place to work. It was named the number one place to work for in Alabama last year and placed second the year before.

ConsThis is the only place I have ever worked where they expect employees to buy stock instead of awarding stock to them.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Executive management is made up of friends and they promote 'yes men'.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Birmingham, AL

I worked at CTS (Computer Technology Solutions)

ProsGood for a new undergrad that wants to focus on developing software programming or QA skills.

ConsNot much in terms of innovation - they focus on .NET and SQL Server, and are average at that.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone, there is no point.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

CTS is a great company to work and grow with, I would highly recommend it.

Consultant (Current Employee)
Birmingham, AL

I have been working at CTS (Computer Technology Solutions)

ProsGreat people, a challenging environment, and plenty of opportunities to advance with the ability to work on varied technologies across multiple industries.

ConsThe life of a consultant can be demanding and it isn't for everyone. If you don't want to be in an environment where you are asked to quickly adapt, change, learn, travel, or otherwise do something that might not be in your written job description then CTS is not the company for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementCTS has been working towards better communication across all levels of the organization. This effort needs to continue as some decisions should involve more than just upper management in order to ensure employee buy-in and adoption.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
