    I have been working at Contech Engineered Solutions (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Empowerment, challenging projects, great team of people, genuine interest in people now that new Sr. Management has taken over and its a night and day difference that previous Sr. Management, becoming more flexible with schedules for those that have families, truly listen and want to know what the employees think. Like that career paths can be lateral and I can move into other groups for new opportunities

    Cons

    None at this time

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating and being transparent its a great change than before and we as employees enjoy it

    I have been working at Contech Engineered Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people have been great. I have been working here for 5 months and very helpful. Job is not too demanding, but is still challenging, which I enjoy.

    Cons

    It seems I can be a middle man sometimes. There is a lot of sending emails to other employees to get answers and then sending that back to the customer or precaster.

    Advice to Management

    At this time I there really is not any recommendations I would need to make. My boss has been great working with me and helping me get up to speed.

    Pros

    over all great place to work
    quality engineering teams
    quality asset management (personnel & product)
    honest leadership
    employees engaged with management making for a personal investment into the company

    Cons

    lack of divisional communication
    lack of divisional cooperation (decisions being made by one division that at face value are immediate, but affect other divisions without their direct input)
    organization of "behind the scenes" processes
    lack of "overall team building" to ensure that all employees know that they work for the same company

    Advice to Management

    more team building opportunities (during the day, and not evenings)
    department managers process training with other departments/divisions
    design & building exercises for all departments (design, fab to install). this would be practical applications with hands-on exercises and not merely a seminar format.

    Pros

    Great people, solid corporate reputation, great solutions. Industry Leader. Have to resources to push technologies forward, and in my experience always were ethical in day to day, testing, and promotion of results and performance. Leadership is looking forward beyond tomorrow an positioning company for long term success.

    Cons

    Corporate location can make it difficult to relocate the best young talent. As a result, HQ is predominantly seasoned Contech employees and "lifers." The young super stars are across the country, with potential limits to advancement due to geographic issues.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the millennial and the technology they have grown up around. Adapt to quick changes, and steer the narrative. Keep true to ethics, and maintain high standards.

    Pros

    Contech provided me with a great internship! While working in the Finance Department, I helped fulfill audit requests and close the fiscal year. The team was eager to work with me and answered all my questions. Furthermore, all the interns meet twice a month for luncheons with guest speakers. We even got to have lunch with the CEO and two Presidents, which was a great opportunity to hear from Contech's top management. It made me feel valued as someone very new to the company. I would recommend interning at Contech, and I would love to come back!

    Cons

    I would have liked more feedback about my performance.
