    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Concurrent Technologies Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hiring is swift. The process is superficial like everything else at CTC. The pay could be considered ok for the 50% travel, and endless hours of work.

    Cons

    1. The warm welcome soon wears off.
    2. The job position you think you are hired to performed is constantly shifting beginning immediately.
    3. Junior hires direct overall work, which makes for friction with senior hires. This backward situation developed because of the need to fill in field data to a master computer database.
    4. Management has a "point-the-finger" and firing squad mentality.

    Advice to Management

    It would behoove you not to hire your pals, and to have an outside third party examination of your "highly ethical" business practices. However, all current and former CTC employees know the family is an ailing body that has not stomach for advice.

    I worked at Concurrent Technologies Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Great pay in a small town! Benefits are adequate but more of the cost is being pushed to the employees. Technical teams are client focused.

    Cons

    Constant reorganizations of management - paint and reshuffle the deck chairs as the ship is taking on water!
    Good ole boy network is alive and well!
    Little or no training budget - CTC University is a joke! Project and Program Managers are not trained or required to obtain training on how the government (specifically DOD) does business.
    HR is overstaffed and it is not advisable to disagree with them. You will pay a price!
    Executive management takes credit for work that they have little interaction with from bringing the work in to actually performing the work.
    Bonus program encourages cliches. "Friends" are put on proposal teams and recommended for bonuses while technically qualified people are asked for uncompensated input.
    Layoffs and furloughs are the norm. Most of the highly qualified people leave or a forced out when work is not available.
    Physical movement of people is disruptive and unnecessary. You are expected to change cubicles on a moments notice without any concern for the work you are performing or the actual costs incurred due to the move.
    You are lucky if you have firm work beyond 3 months.
    Nepotism is rampant, while not as bad as it used to be.
    Business Development Office hasn't brought in any new work and is a drain on corporate overhead dollars.
    Branding is a joke!

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers!
    Stop reorganizing!
