    I worked at Comtek International full-time

    Pros

    Comtek is located in a trending West loop office building across from the train station. Lots of food options close by. Donut Vault is in the lobby. Reasonable parking valet up the street.

    Cons

    Unorganized, downsized, small operation. Basically 3-4 employees running a temp service. They use trial versions of software, generic emails, and have no formal processes. basically a cut and paste resume factory. Outdated information or nothing when it comes to historical info. Just look at the web site, that is 10 year old information there. Operationally, no policies or procedures. One of the few employers left that hold pay for 2 weeks in arrears.

    Advice to Management

    Stop misleading people, be honest about the company size. Have some pride in the organization. Buy real software if you want to track activities and information. Pay employees what they are due and stop jerking them around.

    Pros

    I have been working at Comtek for over two years. It is a fun, team oriented, and laid back work environment. Unlike many staffing firms, there is little in the way of inner office politics. Expectations from management are fair and attainable! Two thumbs up for Comtek!

    Cons

    Would be nice to have the option to work from home on Fridays!
