    I have been working at Contech Engineered Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They take great care of their employees and everyone is very helpful and friendly. I really like working here

    Cons

    Some of the managers are not very good. My personal manager is about the worst that I've ever worked for. I wish we had a better manager.

    Advice to Management

    Get insite from regular employees instead of just talking to managers. Many times the managers that aren't very popular with their department won't get real opinions

    Pros

    Hours- Free Coffee and Sodas

    Cons

    Really poor management non-appreciative. Boys Club, period.

    Advice to Management

    Training schedule needs to be implemented. Expecting a *Non-Error* performance after changing job description and software system is unrealistic. Software needs to be 100% before implementing a switch-over to new, not 70%. When management can't perform your job, they can't possibly understand daily functions that go with it and rate performance.

    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

    Good staff, Good Wages (although annual "merit" raises are a joke) and in a good location.

    Cons

    Some of the mid-level management leaves much to be desired. Not all, but some seem to only be concerned with themselves and not the team that makes them shine.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house w/ the management team. Too many mid-levels that are not interested in improving processes, or making Contech a pleasant working environment.


  9. "Great experience as an accounting intern"

    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.
