    Pros

    Crooked CEO. Drama drama drama. Management has no control. 3 tier union shop. Management has no control. Lots of bullying that doesn't get taken care of. Since announcement of closing they've been hiring temps. Not doing background checks. Lots of fighting and threatening. Jobs going to 3rd word countries. Company is going to hell in a hand basket.

    I worked at CTS Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some good dedicated people. They pay well for the location.

    Cons

    Many third-rate employees. Many good people leave. Tremendous waste with rework and scrap. Was working with the worst programmer ever. He did not know how to use a "class" which is a basic building block of software code. He stuffed his horrible code into VB.NET modules, with hundreds of global variables. The results were not good. He has been doing this for many years. The building is an old dump with no amenities.

    Advice to Management

    Stamp out waste or die! Get out of that dumpy old building. You might attract better people if the building was not dirty and dilapidated. Many managers are incompetent. Budgets are starved but waste goes unabated.

    Good Benefits and working hours

    The unprofessional behavior that I witness that was directed at other employees was astonishing. It was condoned by upper management and seemed to be openly directed at specific individuals. Steer Cleer of this company.

    Clean house and get some professionals to work for you.
