    Pros

    SGS Testcom manages the applications and the systems that manage the state vehicle smog program. They manage the system the best that they can based on funding and staff talent. There are a few talented people below the manager rank that are adding value to this project.

    Cons

    The working environment is deplorable, old out of date buildings with poor facilities (see other reviews). Computer systems and databases are on the verge of serious failure due to poor management. The headquarters in Balston Spa NY, contains the executive staff. The executives treat their managers poorly, not providing raises to reward good performance in 2 years. Relationships with the State of California (the customer) are often poor.

    Advice to Management

    Management in Balston Spa needs to be put on notice for poorly managing this program causing significant financial loss for the parent company, SGS. Poor hiring decisions of Development, Operations and Program Managers has plague the success of the business.

    Pros

    freedom with your schedule to a limit. you can start ya day late or very early and when your done with your assignments for that day then you are done for the day.. the pay was salaried so you was given 40 hr weeks even if you didnt work the whole 40

    Cons

    management does not manage well at all... there is no support against arbitrations from your management. they dont compensate to equal your expenses. they dont assist in training that can benefit their employees. they have a high turn around rate.

    Advice to Management

    i really dont have any advice to give to this company because management does not listen and they dont think very highly of their employess anyway
