    I have been working at Catapult Technology as a contractor

    Pros

    Catapult will provide you the tools you need to be successful in your career, you just need to use them. If you are a good employee and have proven yourself, they bend over backwards to ensure that you remain one of their employees, even if they have to move you to another contract if the contract you are currently on is going to expire and not be renewed.

    Cons

    Contract work is difficult and unfortunately when you are placed in a work area sometimes it is difficult to move up; you may get added responsibilities, however, unlike working in a corporate environment, it can sometimes be hard to progress, regardless of continuing education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When taking on new contracts, look at your employee database and take into consideration the qualifications that they list; some employees have the qualifications for you to hire them for the new contract from within which will benefit you by having proven dedicated and competent employees on the new contract, which will make you look even better to the new customer, and will also give your employee a chance to expand his experience and feel as if he is truly appreciated and recognized by their employer.

    I worked at Catapult Technology full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The health insurance benefits were decent.

    Cons

    Senior management was aloof and didn't communicate with any of the lower level staff.
    Salary levels are below market
    Disorganization and lack of vision
    Lack of employee development (education reimbursement was often denied because of it not being related to the specific job title)
    Constant threat of termination

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with employees and make them feel like they are part something more than just their job. Treat people with respect and as a peer, and not like an expendable asset.

    I worked at Catapult Technology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers are easy to get along with; the C-suite is very accessible to employees.

    Cons

    No growth opportunities; salaries not at industry standards; very little experience outside of direct technology consulting -- this is not a management consulting firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a proposals department that will shift the business development work off of the day-to-day management consultant teams.

    Pros

    I have had a positive experience at Catapult Technology and I believe the company is on an up slope following their acquisition by DC Capital Partners.

    Cons

    I hope the company would be more willing to promote from within.
