    Pros

    Contech management cares about their employees, Don't feel like they get much support from their parent company, Quickrete. Overall a good company and you can learn a lot. They have great group of talented driven employees.

    Cons

    Parent company "Quikrete" needs to learn to trust their lower level managers. They are the ones that make this company successful. They need to put some money back into the company and not beat them up over every dime. Trust s a two way street. Benefit package need some serious help the costs to the employee's are way to high and the coverage is way to low.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your lower level managers, They work tireless hours to make this a successful Company.

    Pros

    Good Pay. Great people to work with. Provides with resources needed to perform job.

    Cons

    Recently acquired by Quikrete, had to change over all benefits ones that were inferior. Without engineering degree, it isn't easy to advance. Always switching systems around so it never feels like it works properly. Easy to get overloaded by work and have to work longer hours.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunity for upward mobility.
