Pros

Pay for middle management positions is generally comparable to that offered by other similar companies--But the greatest reward came from knowing that, via sound assessments, employees could have a positive influence on education across the country.

Cons

Lack of respect and appreciation by management for its employees; requirement to be available and/or working 24/7. People are held accountable for factors over which they have no authority or control.

Advice to Management

It has been well documented that praise and acknowledgement are superior to money as rewards to employees. CTB falls far short of doing this. Badgering and belittling are common tactics for some managers, and employees do not respond well to these management techniques.

    Pros

    Amazing people
    (now) manageable workload

    ample parking
    good work-life balance

    Cons

    still suffering from the good old boy's mentality from back in the day, and hasn't quite completely moved away from it
    haphazard, sloppy technology due to poor decisions and lack of foresight
    office is shrinking, getting depressing
    terrible infrastructure

    Advice to Management

    put your money where your mouth is and either support company and bring it to the 20th (forget about 21st) century or move on.
