Very good overall but lots of turnover and little loyalty

I have been working at Technica as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

New building, friendly staff, pretty good managers, bagel Monday and free lunch once a month.

Cons

Senior IT management can be fickle and not genuine, and doesn't plan well, being reactive instead of proactive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't judge the value of staff by whether their projects need them but by capabilities.

    I worked at Technica

    Pros

    Very technical people and interesting projects. You learn alot on the job because of the projects and people. Management cares and watches out for staff. Benefits are average. Executives are unusually technical and walk around to talk about technologies with staff. Well liked by customers.

    Cons

    Benefits are average. That's all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep talking to staff-that is much appreciated. Pizza lunches are good-brings staff and management together. Keep that small company, family feel.

    I worked at Technica

    Pros

    Interesting Project, liked my government customer. We were embedded with the government. Government was upset that Technica could not keep good people.

    Cons

    Pay was low, once a month, benefits bad - bottom wrung. Company had months notice of project end but didn't tell us....we were called Sunday night and told not to go in Monday and they mailed our pink slips. Indicative of the company. Would not pay for training or certs. Gave me one salary when I interview and another on the offer letter. I told them nothing doing and they were upset because I didn't let them take advantage of me. I should have walked away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You won't be able to keep contracts until you pay employees enough to keep them. Won't keep employees until you treat them as a valued resource instead of chattel.
