I worked at Contech Engineered Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great employees (if there are any left)

Cons

Yet another round of job cuts last month, how many more times will senior management do this before they realize they have decimated what once was a great company? Morale is awful, everyone is looking over their shoulders wondering what will happen next and nobody has trust in the executive team.

Advice to Management

Put your egos aside and leave so that some real leaders can come in and salvage what is left of this company. Your employees are smart enough to see right through what you are doing, stop spending money frivolously when you haven't made any contribution to the company.

    I worked at Contech Engineered Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Product Line Excellent Technical Support Staff Solid people on the fron line

    Cons

    Too many layoffs over past 5 years Go on furlough, get an email....is that wrong or what? Big Brother...everything is salespeople's fault Incompetent middle managers including some Director positions

    Advice to Management

    You don't win a war by depleting sales staff, i.e. those in battle on the front line taking the bullets. This company is WAY TOO Fat in the middle and continues to bulge at the seam. The overhead keeps pricing levels at uncompetitive levels. Signature PVC product is too high to sell, company insists on 15% profit margins in an economy that doesn't allow it but due to being fat in the middle it's 15% or nothing. As former Sales Engineer, it's been nothing for way too long. Too many managers sitting at their desk dictating selling strategies in territories they aren't familiar with (because they spend their day behind a desk) to contractors they never met (because they spend their day behind a desk) thus negating the human element which is so vital in relationship building as a sales organization

    I worked at Contech Engineered Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Just like in any other place, there are descent people above you (nevetheless, they cannot deliver on promises because the multiple-layer structure and mentality).

    Cons

    Corporate mentality is so rampant here. It just puts you in a complete circle and makes you feel that you have gotten absolutely nowhere. Just stuck in a rut.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up, and look at your people as humans not just mere numbers.
