    I worked at Gotham Technology Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Gotham Tech is a good place to start your IT career, but for the long run, you will be pigeon-holing yourself. You'll be knowledgeable with Citrix and Checkpoint security if that's your choice. You can work remotely a lot. Open to training employees.

    Cons

    Not a lot of job growth past Technical Architect. Management has a one-track mind on their Citrix and Security solutions, and not willing to foster open opportunities in other realms of IT. Also, there is a trust issue between Technical Architects and Systems Engineer. Micro-management and finger-pointing from Technical Architects come down on Systems Engineer when things don't go as planned nor one's control. There's a difference between reacting and responding to a situation.

    Also, it's not a good sign when you arrive onsite at your client's office, and they are complaining on how much they dislike your upper management's treatment and business towards them. Repeat business with top-tier clients? I think not when you keep nickel and dime-ing them. Change is very hard at Gotham.

    Advice to Management

    Out with the old and in with the new. Respond, don't react.

    Pros

    They have some nice connections

    Cons

    They have some nice connections, but are about to loose some big accounts
    They pay very low
    Once consultants/employees start at client site, they will never ever follow up or give you any information.

    Advice to Management

    Save you top few clients before it is too late

    Pros

    Gotham Technology Group is a great place to work for. It's definitely a great place to start your IT career as well or already at the senior level. They want you to grow as an individual and promote that... You have to want it though. Definitely a place where you need to be self motivated and determined.

    Cons

    The training structure could be better

    Pros

    It's a tough industry to be in, but the people here understand that. More importantly, they understand our personal needs and create and excellent family atmosphere. There is nothing they won't do to make sure we are happy with our career path and professional education. There is always an ear to listen and always someone to learn from.

    Cons

    No cons, just pros. It's a two way street, if something is wrong or you're unhappy; express yourself and positive results will follow.

    I have been working at Gotham Technology Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A great place to work with a strong feeling of camaraderie and teamwork delivering successful solutions for our clients. There is a natural teamwork atmosphere at Gotham, when opportunities present themselves, people are eager to put together the best solution. Communication through all departments are borderless. The doors are always open at the senior management level, all you need to do is knock. As the company grows and needs change, the company makes adjustments. Gotham is not afraid to try something new. A great balance of work and "play".

    Cons

    Management sometimes takes, what feels like a long time to make personnel adds, moves and changes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Every year Gotham gets stronger and stronger. Get a kegerator.
