Pros

An amazing opportunity for financial growth if you are a real "go getter". Ability to manage your own desk with the full support of management and account representatives. Great company with a great history and reputation. Love the leadership here, they are very thoughtful and willing to take critisism.

Cons

Lots of process changes coming from upper management. It seems like the level of preparedness is not up to par. Reactive. Decisions about processes are not well thought out and in delivery do not come naturally. Not enough "brainstorming" amongst teams and the idea of best practices is not utilized enough.

    Pros

    Getting setup as an employee is simple but Bartech is a contract house and just that so they help you get a job, but thats the extent of their help.

    Cons

    No support in helping their employees earn more money, gain benefits, or receive permenant employment. They place no emphasis in consistency of wages and/or benefits amongst their employees who are in the same position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The lines of communication between employees and employee relations specialists need to be open more. Employees are made to feel stuck in the middle between the contract house and the contractor.

    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.
