    I worked at CBTS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent salary and bonuses for non-degree employees. Was able to do my job 100% telecommute, so no worry of having to travel or relocate.

    Cons

    Medical benefits were a bit high, relying on BCBS/Anthem is not the way to go. Vision plan sucked entirely. When projects end, very slim chance of getting assigned to new project. Too much of putting all of one's eggs in one basket deal when coming to providers.

    Advice to Management

    Need more training opportunities, especially for technical and management areas.

    Pros

    Cooperative team environment, many long-term employees creates a family atmosphere, there is a roll-up-your-sleeves approach. Peer relationships are strong; teammates good about sharing knowledge. Supportive management.

    Changes sometimes not well communicated, but when are, mgmt is good about providing detail. New employees going through on boarding sometimes struggle knowing what's happening next.

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

    Pros

    Pay was commensurate with industry.

    Cons

    Very high turnover in this company. There is a constant search for talent as people either quit due to poor management or they are let go due to lack of direction and information from management then blamed for the issue. I had 3 different managers in less than 2 years due to turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees and LISTEN when they bring an issue to the table then discuss it. Don't just ignore the issue and hope it goes away.
