    I have been working at STL Technology Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been with STL for a little over a year and while there have been many changes, the team has improved significantly. Overall leadership has addressed several critically important areas and the company is growing again. Tools and technology has created accountability for all levels within the company and now employees have the autonomy to focus on achieving results for our customers.

    Cons

    Need a better defined 401K match and / or a retirement contribution plan, as a part of total compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to empower employees, by creating process and structure that allow employees to thrive. And of course everyone wants to increase their earnings potential.

    Great people to work with and to work for.

    Pros

    Good way to gain personal experience, Management does not constantly hover over you, Learned a lot about the in's and out's of business while I was there

    Cons

    Poor management, EXTREMELY high turnover rate, Not very well organized, Executives/managers are dishonest with employees (and customers) in many respects

    Advice to Management

    Provide better and more up-to-date training. Have more respect for employees and clients. Focus more on how to do business well/provide exceptional service rather than how to make the most money off of clients and employees.

    I worked at STL Technology Partners as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    compensation was fair, good communication, listened to feedback, quick response when there were issues, developed and fostered good relationship with corporate clients, recruiters and HR staff were friendly, there were good strides to make connections with others working in the community for STL

    Cons

    reserved in approached to discuss concerns with corporate client, took a wait and see, no news is good news, over promised and under delivered on assignment, took a short term contract under the idea that it would convert to a fulll time offer after the end of the short term , afterr that point did not expect another short term contract

    Advice to Management

    open and honest communication with assigned associates and with the corporate client always is the best solution.

    Pros

    - The company leaves you alone while you work on site at the client. Other contracting firms have a tendency to check up on you often but STL leaves you alone as long as everything is operating smoothly.

    - Good Benefits for a consulting firm

    Cons

    - Only 7 days off for your first year.
    - Lack of feedback/ low growth potential

    I worked at STL Technology Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's not very often you get a first hand view of how to not run a business. I got to have that experience working at STL Technology Partners. The owners "The Norman Family" has their staff of indentured servants that have been on the payroll for years and do a great job of attending endless meetings. If you have little talent or skills apply here... there's a good chance you can have secure employment just by "being a part of the family".

    Cons

    If you have any talent, drive, or want to get paid a commission on anything you sell this is not a place to work. The entire company is based of living off of State Farm revenue and trying to keep the owners fragile ego healthy. There is a very low ceiling and there are no mentors to teach anything besides how to brown nose.

    Advice to Management

    Tim... The sky may be the limit but your nose in buried in Ed Rusts backside.


  7. "Professional Process"
