Difficult to get anything done from satellite offices
System Analyst (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – December 25, 2012
Unless you are working for the specific Johnstown Office, it is very difficult to get promoted, speak to upper level management, and to relay information to the appropriate people. They say they strive for an environment where people can get job advancement, but when you ask for training, it gets cancelled without you being told, and when you ask to take on new tasks, it gets stuck "in the chain" for months on end. Management in the satellite offices is not productive, either.
raffles for game tickets, freedom to work on your own in satellite offices

This was the best of work environments. Creativity was encouraged and recognized. Work was done in a nearly autonomous environment. Projects varied but quality always trumped speed. This focus on quality eventually lead to the eradication of the job as they could no longer compete with cheap competitors.
Great team focused on quality and work-home balance

Was an outstanding company to work for. People fantastic and willing to train you. Able to expand your horizons. I was able to grow with the company. Unfortunately they started losing contracts and down sizing.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Johnstown, PA – March 31, 2017
A negative, unsupportive work environment led by self-serving senior and executive management who are oblivious or unconcerned about declining incoming contracts, which have caused a significant decline in the workforce. A corporate monarchy at its best!
All levels of management and Human Resources Department

Enjoyed the variety of projects at CTC and the people. Company provided flexible work schedule if needed. Recent months have been hard on company and company morale. Hopefully additional contracts will be won to keep personnel employed.

I have had (and continue to have) excellent opportunities at Concurrent Technologies Corporation. I am constantly learning new skills and growing in my field. My co-workers are exceptional and the work is always interesting.

CTC has been a great place to work. It has provided opportunities for professional growth, the chance to work with some wonderfully gifted and talented people, and a flexible work environment.
The best part of my time working for CTC has been the people I've gotten to work with on both the CTC and client side. I have made connections that will remain long after my employment ends.
The hardest part of working for any Government contractor is the contract process and having to wonder every year if your job is secure. Will your company be successful? If your company is not successful, will they have a place for you on a different contract? I think CTC is relatively proactive in providing contract updates. However, there isn't much insight on plans if the rebid is not successful. Of course, being dependent on those contracts I would appreciate all of the visibility I can get.
Flexibility, competitive salary, diverse work force
Manager (Current Employee) – Johnstown, PA – September 26, 2016
CTC is a great place to work. I’ve worked at CTC for the last 10 years. CTC has provided me with a great opportunity to advance my career and expand my technical knowledge. I like the people that I work with and I like the atmosphere. I like living in Johnstown and there is no other place in Johnstown that I would rather work.
Good pay, flexible schedule, good benefits, great people to work with.
Can't complain, I guess the benefits could be a little better

Although it was sometimes a very fast pace busy job, I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. I miss trying to get seven people from different states to the same place at the same time. The only thing I don't miss are the meeting minutes.
Analyst (Former Employee) – Johnstown, PA – June 19, 2015
When the man who started the company quits in frustration, you know it's not a good place to be. Started out of college after serving in the military. Great work environment, small, could bring your dog to work. Benefits were fantastic, but retirement matching slowly went downhill. Traveled a lot to different military sites, but once that contract was up, you were floundering and begging anyone to give you work. Co-workers some of the most brilliant people I've ever known. Learned so much from them. But management would not utilize them in their areas of expertise. They would go out and hire more people. Made up resumes of non-existent employees to get contracts they had no idea how to do. Kept contracts going by using "Added Value" method, but nothing was added. Very little product delivered. Good for new graduates to learn the ropes and gain good experience from some fantastic people, after that, LEAVE!!! Not one single person I knew when I was there lasted more than 5 years with the company. Very sad situation.
Excellent benefits, brilliant, nice people, great atmosphere
Did not utilize staff already on-hand for new contracts, overhead for contracts to upper management WAY too high, always searching for billable hours, consistantly did not deliver correct product to DoD, constantly reorganized
Training Specialist (Contractor) (Former Employee) – Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri – May 1, 2015
A typical day at work was been greeted by everyone in the morning and evening. What I learned with this company is to develop good quality training to prepare Soldiers in war and peacetime situation. Management had great communication with their workers and gave incentives for a job well done. My co-workers treated me like family and if I have any questions, they were more than happy to help. The hardest part of the job was nothing, every task was planned out ahead of time. The most enjoyable part of the job was a stress free environment.
