Pretty much like any company

Principal Engineer (Current Employee) Annapolis, MD

ProsGood interesting work with good technology. You do feel you make a difference

ConsLike all companies, there is politics, cliques, premadonas, butt kissers, brown nosers, rebels and ignorant sheep. However money is the bottom line. Since the Carlyle take over, morale has plumented. There is barely discernable investment in technology advancement or career expansion. Most employees spend the majority of their time finding policy loopholes to get out of work and leave early, especially fridays. The every-other-friday off work schedule is badly abused. Everyone is scared to death to correct a female employee or minority employee. However others are quickly 'written up". The work ethic is to do as little as possible and pass off work to others. Business trips are scheduled to maximize 'off-time' and party/drinking stories abound. Senior management is fixated on "dont spend money" mantra. Any requests for funds are met with pained expressions as if you just inserted an ice water enema tube. Promotions are given to the popular and the hottest unqualified females. Peyton place scenarios abound as extra marital affairs seem to be the norm and are seemingly rewarded by top management. At least twice a week employees can be found 'gettin their grove on' in the company parking lot. CTS treats employees needs as if they are hackers. The opening of the tech employment market will create a massive vacuum inside the facility as their will be a stampede for the doors. Pay is good to start, but raises have been less than COLA for last 4 years, despite the "all is great" reports from the CEO. For a communications company, there seems to be very little of it internally.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend money on product advancements and people. Treat customers with respect and dont let problems fester. Be proactive and listen to your people who are doing the heavy lifting. Visit their cubicals and let them know they matter. Fire any middle manager that rebukes an employee that speaks to a senior staffer. Communicate more often and truthfully to the employees.
