    I worked at Career Connection, Inc. for more than 4 years

    Pros

    There are none, but lots of cons.

    Cons

    This company has owned everyone that worked for them on the IBM contract since the end of Feb. The CO Dept of Labor got a court order against the company, but they are ignoring it. I would not work for them, nor use them as a staffing company. They will do what they did to IBM. Walk out leaving their employees with no pay and IBM with no one to work their contracts. IBM had to work behind the scenes to have another staffing...

    Pros

    There are no pro's for this company.

    Pros

    The building has nice views.

    Cons

    Poor Benefits Terrible pay Unprofessional No room for growth No PTO until you've work here a year and even still you have to have a certain amount of hours Nickle dime you out of minutes from your check. You have to use your break time to go to the bathroom. Favoritism, management runs this company like a communist community. Just a bad choice if your looking for long term employment

  5. "CCI - IBM - Morgan Stanley Account"

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Career Connection, Inc. full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      It is easy to get a job w/them. They provide contractors to IBM only.

      Cons

      Over all the management style is antagonistic towards employees instead of supportive. For instance they may change your schedule (2 day notice) or account (2 hr notice) w/no discussion w/you what so ever. They show very little respect for their employees. Very low pay and no opportunity for annual raise.

      Advice to Management

      Over all the management style is antagonistic towards employees instead of supportive. CCI Managers need to take more time to interact 1 on 1 with employees in a private office instead of communicating through instant messaging or meeting in a shared office. Way too much communication is lost through instant messaging.

      Current Employee - Associate Technology L1 in Buffalo, NY

      I have been working at Career Connection, Inc. full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Great IT experience and knowledge can be gained. However, there is not enough supporting documentation at times to assist end users with their technical users. The tools provided do not work most of the time which can leave an employee frustrated that they cannot resolve an issue.

      Cons

      Benefits suck, PTO Accrual could be better, Too much Harrassment on the phones and not enough training provided for systems being used. They also do not offer morale groups or activities for employees to participate in besides a monthly potluck lunch.

      Advice to Management

      Imporvement is needed overall. Employee Morale is low.
