Pros

If you make the right connections you will move up in the company quickly.

Cons

Management tends not to keep the employees in the loop of things. They tend to lay off and let go certain individuals and then put unknowledgeable people in those position and pay them less and unfortunately they have no type of impact in the organization.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees and stop hiring people/promoting people that are not knowledgeable of the product and not promote them because they are a friend with members of the senior management team. Basically hire and promote in talent and not friendship. Its funny how they come out of their quarterly earnings and talk about how many people they hire but they don't talk about the employees that they lay off. This company will be going down soon they have no sense of drive or direction.

    Pros

    There was free food during training and free books.

    Cons

    The biggest qualms I had was that the team lead for our team was not truthful and did not provide constructive criticism, which I believe are vital for an intern. Inappropriate relationship between developer and other intern that affected work environment. During my short time there at least four senior developers left. Toxic place. Avoid at all cost.

    Advice to Management

    A few bad apples spoils the bunch. It is unavoidable at such a big company especially with all the acquisitions. Quality over quantity. It might be time to do some house cleaning.

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits, medical, 401K is amazing.

    Cons

    The product has fallen far behind free options and no real development has been done to widen the offering. Gail Goodman is about E-mail...not small businesses. If she was then the product would reflect what customers want. They have gone full on call center and are just concerned with getting the card asap rather than educating the customer which they hid behind for a while. Instead of innovate they cut cost as much as they could. Stop drinking your own kool aid. you are not the best anymore, your main customer now is someone who doesn't know any better. Being the choice of the educated customer is out the window now.

    Advice to Management

    Take an honest look at yourself, force Gail out and get someone in who isn't solely driven by an insane ego. Sounds harsh but it's true, if you are going to work at CTCT in sales then prepare for a very very high pressure high.
