    Can't think of anything bad :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I worked at eGlobalTech full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay was good because I was able to negotiate a good salary when I first started and got a promotion after my first year. At the beginning of 2016 PTO was changed to 4 weeks which is great. The Pro's will always depend on the relationships one forms with management, co-workers, and client. I know people reading these reviews want to see positives as well as negatives from the people who have worked/ is working at the company, but honestly, the biggest pro for me was my co-workers and I will miss them a lot.

    Cons

    The medical benefits are not bad but not great. The company has recently graduated from a Small Business to Medium size business and it appears that this transition is one that management is struggling with. There's a VP layer that has been added to management too quickly within the past year and is not working close with Program Managers to understand what's going on with the contracts/clients.

    Lack of placement of already hired field workers to other contracts once their projects are completed resulting in layoffs especially if people have been at the company for almost three years. This is the result of not wanting people on the bench for no more than 2 weeks even though I know of a few situations where people have been placed on the bench for 3+ months (although one of them quit since he/she got uncomfortable looks while waiting on their clearance to start on another client site).

    If employees want to have work opportunities with another agencies/contract there's minimal direction as to the steps needed to make such move and some Program Managers are not willing nor care to help the employees to grow in their careers.

    Last but not least one of my cons/pet peeves was the lack of follow-up on employees clearances. Employees had to follow-up more than needed to ensure they were able to start work or have their access started at the client site they are working.

    Advice to Management

    Priority for placement in another contract should be given to those individuals who have proven to be productive and good workers. Be mindful of the Program Manager and the relationships they and the field workers have with the clients. Before jumping into trying to win work management should get feedback from the employees at the client sites where work is going to be bid to understand what's going on and if bidding for that work is an appropriate move. Also, if employees are getting Exceeds or Meets in their performances and not getting a promotion a bonus is always appreciated for moral boost and loyalty enhancement. When I reference the bonus part this does not equate and do not attempt to equate Hi-5 Award as I do not feel this provide a moral boost or confidence on employees performance if manager can not give them to employees as often as they would like.

    Pros

    - Fantastic Cyber Program Managers
    - Owner is a woman with a history in the contracting space-- she is very smart

    Cons

    - overhead; Recruiting Team is dysfunctional. There is a Manager who does nothing yet a recruiter who basically runs the whole show.

    Pros

    Hire quickly. Good salary. Work for government agencies.

    Cons

    HR is unprofessional. The benefits person doesn't like to answer questions and is always angry. One of the Program Managers even told me she has a reputation for being difficult and does not like to questioned. Not sure why she is still there, considering several employees have had a negative experience with her performance. She had an error in her onboarding presentation and instead of just admitting the information was wrong, she argued that all of the new employees were wrong - we didn't see that data listed. Crazy!

    Seems like a brand new company with no standardized processes. No formal paperwork when you're let go, no severance, no checklist to ensure they have company equipment - so unorganized. Some of the Intranet documents are outdated. I referenced one to the HR benefits lady, she pretty much yelled via email to me & my Program Manager about the policy not being correct and in need of updates. I've never seen anything like it - she berated a manager in front of her subordinate and she's still an employee there.

    Managers lack people management skills, they don't have your back. Will throw you under the bus to save themselves, even when you follow their instructions. There was no way to review their performance, so they continue to be unethical.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the HR people and hire people with more experience in standard HR procedures. Hire managers with management experience, not "yes men" for the client. If you are loyal to employees, not firing them when there is no contract, they will be loyal to eGT and the company will grow.

    Pros

    Small company, nice office, located near metro. Its a bandaid job or intermediate step.

    Cons

    Owners often give conflicting direction behind each others back and are reactionary. Very fluid SOPs so much that standardization is not possible. You are an insider who has worked here years, or you are not.

    Pros

    Good pay, nice team, management responsive to employee concerns; benefits are good and work life balance is better than expected.

    Cons

    The management can be a little bit more organized in terms of contracting and let the employees know in advance if there is a risk of losing the contract so that employees can prepare.
