    I worked at PHT Corporation (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the staff are great people to work with especially the once in production.

    Cons

    Stay away from accounting department - although there are new management and new people in accounting so this may not apply anymore

    Pros

    Easy workload
    Overtime pay
    The job overall was very low stress. People were friendly and didn't really bother you if you wanted alone time.

    Cons

    Not much going on. Lots of dead time.
    Fairly boring office space
    Outdated software that needs to be used by the QA team.

    Advice to Management

    The management seemed fine. I was just an intern so I just dealt with lower level management. Maybe have more work oppurtunites for the interns.

    I have been working at PHT Corporation full-time

    Pros

    There is ample opportunity for both upward and horizontal mobility--it's a highly rewarding and motivating working environment.

    Internal organization is a bit messy.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at PHT Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Has a lot of potential but communication is lacking. Coworkers are very nice. Flexible schedule

    Cons

    There is no onboarding process so everyone is left to sink or swim. It was much better before it was bought by ERT. The focus is more on the money than the customers and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on professional development of your employees and hiring people that will complement your team

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at PHT Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible work day with ability to work from home as needed. Solid people.

    Cons

    Will promise movement to new challenging positions but it will not happen. Politics are rampant. Employees are becoming disengaged and no one is noticing.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the staff the market rate. You did a good job providing market increases last year but effectively cancelled it out this year with your poor promotion increases.

    I worked at PHT Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a fantastic company if you are fresh out of college or looking to break into the software industry. They teach you a lot about software development, from both the technology and business side - invaluable experience for anyone.

    Cons

    The low level employees are fantastic, but hardly recognized. This is a sales driven company, and some team leads/managers push this reality to a fanatical level - working overtime, free time, weekends, holidays. Expect (on average) 60 hr workweeks, to get your tasks done.

    Advice to Management

    Value all employees, regardless of hierarchy.

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Business going well, new product in market.

    Cons

    Some Engineering teams have poor management that put more focus on process that on product, other have some leads that are doing more damage than good. Some department overwhelmed with work, other not utilized to full potential.

    Advice to Management

    Better product requirements, reevaluate engineering team leads,

    Pros

    Work/life balance is fantastic and the senior management has gotten supremely better

    Cons

    Archaic systems still exist, although are being upgraded. Processes are still being improved.

    Advice to Management

    Keep emphasizing business systems to automate work and reduce errors.
