Engineers and scientists at the company were driven and brilliant, but program and upper management has no clue.

I worked at 21CT

Pros

The opportunity to set research direction, write proposals, win business, deliver systems to wonderful customers was hard for me to leave.

Cons

Management does not believe in delivering quality and has decidedly moved away from research and development as a focus to basic IT services, hiring people of less quality in the process. Since the goal of the company is to charge the government for every hour of your time, they make it very hard to take vacations or even holidays without making up the time sitting at a desk. The company is clearly not goals-oriented, but hours-oriented.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To deliver quality software products, you must hire serious, technical people to lead the company and have fewer "directors" who are lawyers and non-technical administrators and reward technical excellence with bonuses and promotion.

    Pros

    New brand is a true reflection of the strategic growth and potential of 21CT to truly change the world. Analytic technology PLUS people EQUALS results.

    Cons

    It is a startup, so you must be ready to shift and wear dozens of different hats. Be ready to be uncomfortable at times and welcome new challenges.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focused and listen to what the market is telling you. Although growth is tremendous it is critical that as a company we also focus on growing in the right places.
