    I worked at Innovative Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Paychecks didn't bounce. The pay was low/average, verbal incentive plan, and there were some benefits. Workspace was clean and outfitted with standard office equipment. Shared kitchen.

    Cons

    Management lies to employees about performance expectations and goals then lays off salespeople just when they need to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Happy to learn revenues have dropped from $60M when I was there to $3M in 2016. Serves the CEO right. He has no idea how to hire and manage a team that will grow the company. This company is on the skids and won't be around much longer.

    Pros

    Great Company to work for very organized, the building has great history.

    Cons

    The commute into work is little stressful, clearance process is lengthy.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to give an employee a longer time for clearance process, also
    give employees vouchers for transportation.

    I worked at Innovative Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits and health insurance were pretty good.

    Cons

    Dishonest managers, they were never honest with us especially during the time when contracts or re-competes were happening. No raises! They did buys us lunch from time to time, which was nice. A good tactic to get us to shut up about things.

    Advice to Management

    WAKE UP!!!!!! Stop treating your employees like 2nd class citizens. If you want good employees...A...PAY THEM!!! You get what you pay for here. B...talk to them and let them know they are appreciated!! C...Offer raise and bonus for good work! For those who go above and beyond.
    Pretty simple folks, not brain surgery! Treat your people well and they will give you 110% GUARANTEED!!

    Pros

    Small business with big business philosophy. Good opportunity for AV/Broadcasting Engineers.

    Cons

    Performance Appraisals do not include bonus or pay raise and have not for going on 3 years. Reward to those who put in the extra time and clear commitment to the company are scarce.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those at HQ who put in the extra time and clear commitment to the customer and company not just to those at the remote sites.

    I worked at Innovative Technologies full-time

    Pros

    It was a convenient location for me in Chantilly, VA

    Cons

    Managers were give little or no authority to supervise and operate their own departments, so micro-management was the norm there, rather than just occasional. All decision making was strictly ruled by the bottom line, with little concern for the morale of the employees as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    Take another look at truly delegating decision making to the professionals with manager titles. Employees and morale are suffering.

    Pros

    The had some real nice insurance. It really came in handy when I had my surgery. They gave me partial dissability. i only had to pay $50.00 for my surgery toward insurance.

    Cons

    They were not honest with us during the negotiation process. They kept telling us that everything was fine, but it was not fine and they lost the contract.

    Advice to Management

    BE HONEST with your staff!!!!

    I worked at Innovative Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Everyone gets personal offices or cubicles.
    Free standard beverages like coffee or tea.
    401K.
    Office is located right off of Route 50 but continual road construction makes it difficult in AM/PM traffic.
    Close to Target and Auto Dealerships (only good thing about that location).

    Cons

    Lack of opportunities for advancement. Promotional opportunities is almost non-existent.
    Have to drive through horrible traffic to restaurants near Route 28.
    High management and staff turnover.
    Layoffs more frequent now.
    401K match is yours after an incredibly long 6 years.
    Work isn't challenging at all.
    Health insurance is expensive.
    Management communication to lower staff is non-existent to poor.

    Advice to Management

    Why say anything to Management when they are continually leaving company and management never really listens or takes to heart what staff has to say. It is really "Its my way or its the highway" type of attitude within the company.

    Lose the plaques around the company. It looks ridiculous and very paternalistic.

    Upgrade the company website as it is so old and boring.

    Get a new modern logo and the colors are so old and tired looking.
