    I have been working at Bartech full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility to work from home, giving you a good work/life balance

    A management team that is focused on fixing any issues that arise and making the daily operations run as smoothly as possible

    Opportunity to branch out and work on different projects

    An excellent support team that aid in the recruiting process, such as posting jobs on sites like CareerBuilder and helping in the onboarding process as well as answering questions from current employees.

    Cons

    The industry contains a lot of ups and downs and requires focus and attention to detail as things can get hectic from time to time

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build on the family friendly culture and environment that has been established in the past. Bartech is a great place to work

    I worked at Bartech full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work from home.

    Cons

    There is a lack of training, passive aggressive leadership, and little room for growth. There is no work/life balance even with working from home. You are expected to meet unrealistic expectations, which leads to 10+ hour work days.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a better training system.

    I worked at Bartech full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working from home, work-life balance. Insurance is ok and decent vacation.

    Cons

    When I took the job there, I wanted to be there long term. Since they've been acquired, they've seemed less and less like a family and more like just a job. Never had a 401K match, low pay, no tuition reimbursement. There's no well-placed benefit working there that you cannot receive elsewhere. Management finger points, plays favs, and was outright disrespectful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at how you treat employees. The morale and culture there is gone (ask the people not just what you want to look at through your own eyes). People are talking and word gets around. Change was needed but this one wasn't for the benefit of the staff. Start looking into what you can offer that other companies cannot (working from home is something others are offering now...).

    I worked at Bartech full-time

    Pros

    working from home / work life balance

    Cons

    This is definitely a kiss butt company. Management is so cut throat. If your not in their click they will make sure you fail.

    They always sided with the individual they liked or was clicked up with when it came to submitting a candidate, regardless of how great of a candidate you had. They make you use your vacation time when your out sick.

    This company was the worst I've ever worked for. No room for growth. No training opportunities. No education reimbursement. No 401K. They don't care about you just their numbers.

    I have been working at Bartech full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Paid on time, but so does everyone else.

    Cons

    They will find excuses not to reimburse you for legitimate expenses, even with receipts. They make up the reimbursement rules as they go along to keep from paying you.
    Their "benefits" are horrendous. $1,000/mo for basic medical. They must not make any contribution at all. No paid holidays for first 6 months, no 401k match, no life insurance, disability or long-term disability.
    Some of their reps are just flat out dishonest. Surly, too.

    Advice to Management

    A part of your profit is what you can screw out of your employees. No one on my projects will ever contract through Bartech again.

    Pros

    Great experience - you'll do the job of 2-3 people
    Awesome President

    Cons

    No real opportunity for growth
    The organization doesn't listen to employee feedback about leadership
    Raises are generally only given when you quit or are about to

    Advice to Management

    Ask employees how things are going and act upon their thoughts; youre losing GOOD people over poor upper leadership

    Pros

    I have been at Bartech for 4 years and I love the work culture. They have provided me with the room to grow and be myself.

    Cons

    They could do better in providing training to grow.
