    I worked at Comtech EF Data full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, most holidays off, reasonable working environment. They have several company social events and benefits every year.

    Cons

    Sensitive to the economy and government contracts, so some job positions can come and go on short notice.

    I have been working at Comtech EF Data full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Meaningful work even for entry level employees.
    Some great and knowledgeable people to work with.
    Benefits package includes a discounted stock purchase.

    Cons

    Fixed 3% raise policy from corporate.
    No clear cut path to promotions and people with the same job title will have wildly different levels of experience and skill.
    Management doesn't really manage employees; they manage projects, but you still do have a manager who often needs to be reminded of what projects you are actually working on.
    A lot of the work is copied from old projects and updated/merged for new projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay a little more attention to employee workloads.
    Upper management needs to ditch the 3% raise policy, after just a few years a mid-level employee can find themselves very underpaid and looking for a new job.

    Pros

    the main pro is the people that are the actual producers in the company overall some of the best people I have ever met,they are always trying to do their best

    Cons

    The management style of this company is terrible they seem to constantly berate you and beat you down it gets old after awhile and is not very effective to motivate people, and sometimes the amount of overtime is way excessive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    learn how to motivate people instead of using fear of losing your job to motivate
