I worked at Bartech

Pros

Good salary and ok benefits. The clients and other vendors are very kind. Met some great people, and maintain friendships with them. Good job to build a professional network.

Cons

This is really sad for me to say. When I started with Bartech I had high hopes, but on my first day those hopes were dashed.

Terrible environment, constant feelings of oppression by management. Too much management (too many layers) but no support when it comes to problems. Management spends too much time focusing on the negative and not acknowledging things that employees do well. Some managers are too overbearing and that interferes with the ability of the workers to do their jobs for fear of upsetting the manager. There is a lot of pressure to violate contracts and send business to the sister companies. Penalization of workers who have families and subsequent family issues (ill parents/children). Work/life balance is discouraged among the workers. Very long hours are expected, even when work volumn is low. Obtaining additional education or training is discouraged. No room for advancement within the company.

There is a very high school mentality among some members of the management team (gossiping, brown nosing, rude behaviour, shunning those employees that have a work ethic and want to succeed), often the bad behaviour would take place infront of subordinates making the subordinates uncomfortable. Often subordinates are treated like children, as though they have no ability to think independently, and if an subordinate resolves a problem to the client's satisfaction without management's help the subordinate is criticized.

No sick time. Only 1 week of vacation (5 days vac, 1 personal day 1 floating holiday) per year for the first 2 years you are employed with Bartech "no exceptions" (unless you are friends with a VP then you get extra time off).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Employee recognition would go a long way. The senior managers spend time acknowledging the middle managers, but the employees get no recognition when a job is done well.

More training on how to manage people for management at all levels would be beneficial. They need to learn how to treat subordinates, and how to communicate effectively without threats or criticism.

    Pros

    You are paid weekly without failure. Account Managers and HR are always helpful and responsive.

    Cons

    No downsides to mention. Telecommunications seems to be their niche
