    I worked at Catapult Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working there as a government contractor was an great experience. I felt just as part of the company as anyone else. Definitely not like the typical gov contractor mill that valued quantity over quality. They provided great benefits, exceptional time off including all federal holidays, free training and reimbursement as well as yearly 3% bonus.

    Cons

    I don't have any complaints.

    Advice to Management

    N/A

    I worked at Catapult Technology full-time

    Pros

    Pay remained the same which was better than average for this city.

    Cons

    Zero delivery after many promises. They "closed the sale" yet seemed to have no intention of making improvements despite having a non-IT contract with same agency for at least several years. Worst female manager I've had who threw her subs under the bus on regular occasion. Disconnected, irresponsible management at all levels, and like last company made it clear we were on the lowest of low end even though they basked in our hard work & huge efforts to satisfy a nearly impossible to please customer. Endless, endless, endless email and communication mgmt. and very little tech work.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on doing your job and learning about your clients, not letting IT techs manage it for you. BTW the intro meeting was laughable, I don't care about your pets, kids, military service nor hobbies.

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

    Pros

    I had an amazing manager and maintained good relationships with several employees. the benefits were quite good.

    Cons

    The changes in management over the years dramatically changed the culture - from pretty positive to downright cutthroat. The firm that acquired Caatapult really didn't put any effort into growing the management consulting side of the business. Instead, it continued to push the culture into it's downward spirial.

    Advice to Management

    Besides being honest & upfront with your employees, ask them for help and direction. I am not sure what else to suggest as I really have nothing to do with the company since it was bought. A sad day.

    I worked at Catapult Technology full-time

    Pros

    Former CEO and President had made it a great place to work.

    Cons

    Acquisition by a private investment firm was a signal of decline in leadership. Very funny to read prior recent review by someone remaining, who would love to get out, but writes a glowing review to make it look great. At the same time, revenues have dramatically declined since prior to the acquisition, most of the leadership is gone, and many staff are looking to get out.

    Advice to Management

    Be truthful to your employees, don't make promises that are not fulfilled. Treat your partner firms the way you would want to be treated. Don't post on Glass Door how great a company it is, when you are looking to get out yourself.
