I have been working at Concurrent Technologies Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Good pay and benefits, flexible hours, good coworkers, nice facilities

Cons

Management in Johnstown is out of touch with client needs; seems like they are wasting money on worthless initiatives that could be used to invest in the company's employees (e.g., training, certifications, etc); limited opportunity for promotion; culture of entitlement in Johnstown office

    Pros

    Project managers learn the discipline of project management based on the PMI BOK.
    ISO 9001 QMS and ISO 14001 EMS registration speaks to management discipline.
    Diverse team of talented professionals across the company.

    Cons

    The company's history is tied to Congressional earmarks from former U.S. Representative John Murtha. News articles appeared frequently during my tenure pointing out how much money CTC received through Congressional earmarks.
    CTC is more of a technology demonstration and validation company and less a consulting company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the company's environmental work, reduce the dependence on the National Defense Center for Energy and Environment (NDCEE), or perhaps create a separate identify for work conducted under the NDCEE. The NDCEE is burdened with overly bureaucratic and politicized processes, which impact on the ability of project managers to serve clients effectively using the NDCEE contract.

    I worked at Concurrent Technologies Corporation

    Pros

    Pay is good enough that people will stay and be miserable instead of giving up the nice paycheck and benefits. Employee life/family issues are paramount. Flexibile work schedule and ability to telecommute (occasionally) are nice.

    Cons

    MANAGEMENT MANAGEMENT MANAGEMENT. Horrible at every level. They choose the wrong people to manage people. They are clueless about handling conflict. The good ol' boys network is definintely alive and well, as many others have stated. Executive management is oblivious. It is a miracle that the company is still alive...most likely due to the technical folks working their rearends off to keep clients happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline your management structure. Hold your leadership team members accountable for a change. Learn how to keep information in confidence to protect employees (if you did that, you'd learn a lot more about your areas of weakness). Fear of retailiation is a big problem. Send all of your line managers to training to learn how to actually manage people.
