Pros

Extraordinary amount of talented, hard working and competent people below the management levels. Varied, complex product line keeps you continually learning. Decent amount of latitude to make critical business decisions in your territory.

Cons

This organization is becoming increasingly top heavy. More management and more layoffs at the support level. Directives are becoming increasingly out of touch with realities of the market. Corporate culture is being driven further and further to metric-based micromanagement. Leadership is becoming increasingly untrusting of its employees and its customer base.

Advice to Management

More indians and less chiefs. Learn to trust and respect the two most important aspects of your company - your people and your customers. Your people are more talented than you think and your customers are more trustworthy than you suspect. Just because your financiers are telling you that you are managing the company right doesn't mean you're doing the right thing to make your company stronger in the long term. Ignoring the concerns of your employees and imposing an adversarial corporate culture will backfire in the long run.

    I have been working at Contech Engineered Solutions full-time

    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.
