    Pros

    Flexibility, Work/Life Balance is excellent, Good benefits, competitive pay, education reimbursement - really, really great people that are all extremely dedicated and professional.

    Cons

    No room for advancement in my position, many growing pains in the growth of the company, conservative culture, no tactical planning, constantly moving targets, shifting priorities - everything is done with emergency status.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you all are doing a great job for the company, but I think some moves have been made that will have a significant impact on your "Whatever IT takes" culture. I'm hoping you will sort it out and get that back as you move through the growing pains of integrating with your new ownership. You absolutely have the talent to make that happen, I hope the new ownership values and works with you to continue to grow what you had going before the acquisition.

    Former Employee - Web Developer in Troy, MI
    Former Employee - Web Developer in Troy, MI

    I worked at CareTech Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Pretty decent benefits

    - People who work there are nice

    - Was able to learn much about what not to do

    Cons

    As of this writing, here they are:

    - Salaries are below the industry average.

    - Senior leadership has no clue on how to run a valid, sustainable business.

    - Human Resources is very "clilcky". They have their own exclusive club and doesn't really care about any of the employees they are supposed to represent.

    - Human Resources ruins your reputation. They rearrange your words during exit interviews and in some cases make up blatant lies.

    - Human Resources thinks that GlassDoor is a forum for disgruntled employees instead of looking at GlassDoor to make improvements.

    - Spot bonuses are dependent on the Senior Director of your department who is cheap and doesn't want to approve them. If are approved, they are more of a popularity merit that a reward merit.

    - Old technology.

    - Cronyism at its finest.

    - Billable, billable, billable

    - Senior leadership doesn't thing anything is wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the senior leadership team and all of human resources with competent individuals.

    I have been working at CareTech Solutions full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible in terms of life balance. Friendly place to work, great location right off 75 with lots of restaurants in the area.

    Cons

    Two words: lip service. The pattern is the same regardless of leadership so it must be a cultural thing. My own belief is that things are on a big downward trend, and there are no resources to do what they say they want to do. They're afraid to tell the truth because they know too many will jump ship... and many have in the last 12 months.

    The cycle is clear:
    1) Year after year development teams are told they will get the resources they need to develop new products,
    2) Those resources then are pulled to work on other projects.
    3) They then wonder why their product is so behind the times technology wise
    4) They then panic and push out some new code half-assed without real thought as to the features or architecture, just so something can be "new".
    5) The code which is released is junk, and even more time is spent fixing it.
    6) Go back to step 1.

    On a non-work or day to day side of things, the culture here is very cliquish. I've never worked in a place where employees of other departments don't interact, and upper management doesn't really know their workers, and I've worked in much larger multinational corporations.

    There's a "fun" committee, and bless them, they try, but they probably have no money to do anything. The big event for the year is the "company picnic" which essentially amounts to a hotdog and coke during regular business hours in a tent in the parking lot. Every couple of months they give you a candy bar, or just recently, a donut and 4oz cup of cider. lol.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Say what you mean, and do what you say. You need to generate a clear focus on goals.

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, caring management at middle management level. Interesting work with a sense of purpose (healthcare).

    Cons

    Some upper managers are uncaring and even unethical. This 'black mark" casts a bad light on the whole company since it is tolerated. Employees working at client sites as opposed to those at corp offices are treated as second rate citizens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up your high level management. Get rid of the "bad apples". Treat your remote employees with the same standard applied to those who work at corp.
