I worked at The CENTECH GROUP full-time (More than a year)

Pros

You can carve your own path with the company. Autonomy for upward mobility exists and has family values. Competitive salaries and great benefits.
Bagels and Doughnuts on Fridays are a great perk.

Cons

Recently lost many government contracts. The strategy is undefined of how to grow this small to mid-sized company to one that is well known throughout the DoD community.
The interview process is laborious and can take several weeks.
Lacks a leadership and advisory board that takes employees input.
Located in an industry that is slowly dying.

Advice to Management

Clarify goals to employees. Create a Leadership Board that includes a VP of Business Development.

    I have been working at The CENTECH GROUP full-time

    Pros

    Unlike other companies I have worked for, this company genuinely cares about its people. For the size, I think the benefits and pay are quite good and there is always someone available to talk to about HR issues. Also, the company offers a lot of different bonus programs and holds special award dinners to reward employees, which is not exactly the norm in this industry. The last one was very nice with tons of client recognition awards. It felt good to know that (most) of our customers appreciate the hard work we put in.

    Cons

    The changes in the industry relating to government cutbacks are felt at CENTECH, too. The company does try its best to pay people's salaries at previous levels but that's simply not always possible when winning new business takes a lower and lower price. As a small company, I feel there is not much to do and I see the bigger companies dole out more aggressive pay cuts than smaller companies like CENTECH. Going to be a rough ride for a while!

    I worked at The CENTECH GROUP full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    At least they have ambition.

    Cons

    This company is completely in over their heads. The Centech Group is only concerned with turning the absolute maximum profit possible from their contracts. While this is to be expected in the defense contracting community, Centech takes it to a whole new level.

    They have little to no consideration of customer satisfaction. Keep in mind the customer (The Government) is the people you will need to face and work with every day. While the decisions are made far away by unknown faces, you will be left with the uncomfortable situations and inability to properly support the missions you care for most.

    If you're looking for a paycheck and care very little for the operations you support, the Centech is the place for you!
