I worked at Contegix full-time

Pros

People there are nice. Health insurance was cheap. Downtown location. Work doesn't come home with you if you don't let it. However...

Cons

...upper management has no clue how to run a proper business model for what they are trying to achieve. Terrible cheap, low quality hardware utilized. Insecure, flat layer 3 network, that is not PCI/HIPAA compiant even if they say it is. Procedures are non existant, and the ones that do either fail or change often. High turnover rates, even in management. You will burn out quick. Constantly under legal pressure from external sources. Unstable and untruthful upper management. Negative atmosphere. Unprofessionalism spread around the entire company. Overall a TERRIBLE place to consider working for. A TRAP. Hardly would even put this on a resume. Most of the engineers still there (that have been there for a year or more) are currently considering leaving.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

At this rate, it's probably best that the company was either sold off or dismantled.

    I worked at Contegix full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Got to suffer alongside some truly remarkable individuals; now whenever we cross paths again we have a cetain sense of comradery.

    Cons

    Poor Management
    Unrelaistic Work Expectations
    Waste of Human Potential. lack of proper resource optimization
    Culture based upon fear of failure and not a desire to do well
    Questionable work ethic / moral compass
    Mismanaged work flow
    Poor proccesses and procedures
    non-existant change management
    seems there was always only one job for technical people
    Management doesn't know what to do with professional people who have worked in the real world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take your current business odel and burn it. There are more stakeholders in any business than just customer and owner; employee and supplier groups are also greatly important. You will continue to bleed staff until you are dry unless you correct this.

    Pros

    There are a lot of great people that work there. There is a lot to learn and grow from individually. The work environment can be fun.

    Cons

    There is little to no career opportunity. The work environment is mostly stressful and disorganized. There are poor procedures in place and things tend to go wrong a lot of the time. There are problems retaining adequate staff levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to figure out how to retain staff and improve the work environment before you lose it all. You need to compensate people with talent and give them a sense that they will grow with the company rather than use them up and throw them out the back when you are done with their services.
