    I worked at KTA Group full-time

    Pros

    Good location, nice office, good policy for keeping hardware/software up-to-date.

    Cons

    Dishonest ownership. Good at winning work but not managing work. Many excellent engineers and some good managers left the firm, and very junior engineers were assigned project management of significant complex projects despite not having any PM experience or even adequate knowledge of their own discipline. A very small percentage of the ownership of this "engineering" firm are licensed engineers - or even degreed engineers.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Salary on average good was good. Projects and assignments were always interesting. The company creates unique content for educational programs.

    Cons

    Atmosphere was depressive because of lack of direction and poor management. Promises were made but the follow through never happened. Owner would occasionally explode on employees.

    Advice to Management

    Reorganize

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at KTA Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nice office space, decent computer equipment. Good software but no support. Pay was in line with average. Benefits also in line with average, 401K, health, dental, vision.

    Cons

    People are just a commodity to be used and discarded as it suits the management. Training was promised but it never happened. This company is top-heavy with management. Salary positions are expected to work over 40 hours every week with out compensation of any type, including bonuses

    Advice to Management

    Owner out of touch with workforce, interacts only with upper management.
