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

Pros

Always left the office on time.

Cons

Culture where some of the PMs crave attention and adoration from corporate like children wanting attention and adoration from an absentee parent. It led to some real bad behavior during the course of the contract.

Onsite management feared the customer. It was hard to believe at first. Then became amusing. Then it just became sad.

Lots of time being asked basic questions about the project and domain knowledge from PMs while the same PMs soaked up the spotlight from the client and corporate.

Our one professional manager gave way to others that lacked fundamental yet critical client management and selling skills that short changed the company, team, projects, and most importantly the customer.

Outside of lip service, they aren’t a very customer focused company.

Communications actually got worse as federalization and attrition shrunk the team.

While a company may “graduate” from the 8a program, they never really leave the program and Centech still carries a lot of the old 8a entitlement and baggage compounded with some managers who lack key strategic skills such as proposal writing and client management.

Advice to Management

Revisit the role of PM and why they act like children craving attention and adoration from corporate.

Learn to distinguish between schmoozing and real skills when choosing Project Managers.

Those who don’t learn from their PM hiring mistakes are doomed to repeat them.

If you insist on choosing PMs the same way, at least, establish a mentoring program in basic domain knowledge and skills for them.

Stress the importance of communications to your managers especially when those managers lack technical and business experience which the staff already has.
