Very difficult place to understand, given weak management, limited feedback, and excessive upper levels of management.

Pros

Interesting projects, fun people to work with, and opportunity for travel (but of course this is not so good if you don't want to travel).

Cons

Management will fire people as soon as there is little or no work. Given the cyclic nature of the business, this happens frequently. The company is now owned by an investment banking group, who has little apparent interest in promoting loyalty among employees, but seems to take a very bottom line approach. The company is highly focused on federal work, which is not a good market right now, and probably will not be for the future, hence opportunities may be limited. Although they have two divisions, forensic and project controls, the two groups have very different cultures, and there is limited opportunity for cross pollination. Although management claims that their employees are the heart of the business, you would certainly not know it from the cavalier way they dispense with even long term, loyal employees who performed well, and traveled extensively. Do not expect any appreciation for your hard work, advancement seems to be a matter of kissing up to your boss, or possibly blind luck. It is a little bizarre to see advertisements for new employees at the same time existing employees are being terminated, either they hire a collection of losers and then have to fire them later, or there is something weird about the system. I think the system is pretty weird, leading back to top management.

Advice to Management

Reduce the number of high level managers. Take the time to understand what the field workers actually do, and try to make their life a little easier. And don't fire people as soon as they have 5 unbillable days, plan ahead, and seek to find alternative work assignments for them. Possibly keep them on part time or on contract status, you never know, you might need them again some day.

    I worked at Project Time & Cost, Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The high level of Professionalism amongst the people that I worked with and the challenges presented were exceptional. The traveling to various project location was very rewarding.

    Cons

    The down times due to lack of work made the future employment with the company a challenge. This was not very conducive to any personal long term planning.
