    Pros

    Lousy place to work!!! Run in the opposite direction ...
    Watching remarkable and extremely talented employees walk out the door is horrible. You are all without ...

    Cons

    Terrible attitudes by Sr Management (who are clueless), the good remarks posted are by them - the regular employees (current and past) would never post positive.

    Advice to Management

    You have sent GREAT employees to other jobs and out of the area. Ridiculous !!!! Dan Devos knew how to lead. This current guy is completely detached (his name is not even worthy to mention) !!!!

    Pros

    A few honest, hard working employees still exist.

    Cons

    Corporations' CEO is the Chief Egotistical Officer. Executive leadership and the Board of Directors have hidden agendas that revolve around their bank accounts and egos.

    Another year of planned significant corporate losses planned. How is this ok? Leadership needed changed long ago.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously......there is nothing to say. You won't do anything anyway. You are too self-absorbed to even see the lousy job you are doing and what your employees think of you. The lives of many of your employees (current and past) have been negatively affected by your actions.

    Pros

    Great people and team work. Staff willing to go the extra mile.

    Cons

    As with any contracting work, need contracts to come in to maintain work flow. Congress must make wise and on time discussions related to budget. If not, families and the economy will suffer.

    I worked at Concurrent Technologies Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Great pay, excellent people to work with, very cool projects and technology, mostly good clients and partners

    Cons

    Bad executive management and strategy, very poor morale among the staff since the economic downturn, very few really good middle managers

    Advice to Management

    Revamp the strategy to proactively seek out where the firm can realistically compete and win, then actually invest real resources to truly exploit those opportunities

    Pros

    CTC has an educated, professional, dedicated work force at the 'worker bee' level. Salaries and benefits are good for the area.

    Cons

    Most people feel CTC has no future and I have to agree. I don't think that the CEO and BOD have the competence to recover from the severe downward spiral. While I realize government funding cuts have had an impact on many companies, CTC should have been positioned better to react to the changes. Management is out of touch with what is happening on the front lines with direct staff, and don't seem to care much anyway. Anyone who is left (other than EM) is looking for a job and will be gone as soon as they find something suitable.

    Advice to Management

    Management should get their heads out of the sand and face facts. CTC is in dire straights. Even people who don't work there know that. And please start being more honest with employees. All that comes out of EM is 'good news' as they are in denial of the real situation and apparently think employees are not smart enough to know the truth. Shame on them for the charade. And if CEO and CFO are so certain of a successful turn around, they should be paid $1 a year until that happens. Everyone thinks they are just hanging on to keep their large salaries and bonuses as long as they can, and then take their golden parachutes at the end as they will all be able to retire. BTW - what company pays big bonuses when they are close to going out of business?
