    Pros

    They offer a great health and dental plan.

    Cons

    This company grew too fast and thought they were better then they were. They quickly got into trouble by going after projects they were not ready (or equipped) to execute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Scrap your home-grown systems. They are NOT helping you identify where the real problems are and you keep getting rid of the very people who can help get you out the mess you are in.

    I worked at ECC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working in a war zone there isn't really much to complain since you accept the challenges and hardship. ECC provided great security service for the personnel and administrative support was great. Working with a multinational team in a matrix organization was great.

    Cons

    Comparing to the competitor companies, ECC compensated 20-25% lower in salaries. There wasn't really a career opportunity for promotion, the company usually filled the higher positions outside the organization with new hires. Most of the senior management staff was directive and arrogant in most cases instead of providing guidance or mentorship. Also, there is no appreciation / award from the senior management only complaints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Audit performance evaluations, develop appreciation and award matrix and stick with it.
    2. Hire/replace senior management with the people who have more character.
    3. Develop a procurement plan, the existing one doesn't work.
    4. Audit the schedules for each project and make sure they are realistic.
    5. Allow vertical promotion and develop career planning for each indi
