Army Energy Project Manager (present) (Current Employee), Arlington, VAMay 17, 2014
Pros: the company is a great size - large enough for variety and great training opportunities, small enough that you get to know a lot of the leadership personally
Cons: lack of job security
On client site, so not as tuned in with company culture any longer. Learning a great deal about project management at this company.

Working there was ok, but management is not focused on customers
Staff Software Developer (Former Employee), Johnstown, PAMarch 10, 2014
Pros: good pay and benefits
Cons: work was pointless, never put into production by the government
The goal of Concurrent Technologies corporation, or so I would gather from having worked there for 10 years, is to get as much money from the government as possible while doing as little work as possible. If you have the benefit of being able to work on internal projects on overhead, you don't have to deal with that directly; however, I don't think – more... that this is a great place for people to start a career anymore. The government never actually puts anything they made into production. Or at least very rarely. – less

A great place to learn OSHA VPP
Senior Occupational Safety & Health Specialist (Former Employee), Arlington, VAApril 19, 2013
Pros: good product.
Cons: inflexible
I enjoyed learning and supporting my Navy customers. The business model was somewhat uni-dimentional and inflexible, in that it would not accommodate all customers. The cost accounting process was very confusing and I believe led to many inefficiencies in the accounting system.

Difficult to get anything done from satellite offices
System Analyst (Current Employee), Arlington, VADecember 25, 2012
Pros: raffles for game tickets, freedom to work on your own in satellite offices
Cons: management, advancement opportunities, favoritism
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 – more... take on new tasks, it gets stuck "in the chain" for months on end. Management in the satellite offices is not productive, either. – less

Poor management, employees are NOT valued
Information Technology (Former Employee), JohnstownDecember 5, 2012
Pros: excellent benefits
Cons: poor management
Upper management holds no respect for their employees. Employees loyal to the company for over 10 years are summarily dismissed with no warning or treated with any modicum of consideration. In 2012 this has become a frequent occurrence. No jobs are secure. The company is under duress. Its future is questionable, especially considering the recent government – more... cutbacks. – less

Good pay, good flexibility, struggling company
Former Employee (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALSeptember 19, 2012
Pros: great flexibility, good program team, smart people
Cons: not much useful corporate support or guidance.
Enjoyed the work I was doing and the team I worked with. Benefits and ability to manage my program were great. A lot of brilliant employees and hard workers. I learned much and felt rewarded. Had it not been for severe DoD budget cuts I'd still be with the company. However, there was a large disconnect between what the CEO said publically and what the – more... leadership below him acted on. The company routinely oversold its capabilities and took a shotgun approach to contracts. Overhead costs due to operations at corporate HQ were very high and made contract competition very tough. A lot of the leadership culture ingrained with easy government money and not used to hard competition. Very little constructive guidance from corporate leadership other than a constant push to make money. The how was left out in any guidance and any failure was never allowed to reflect upwards. This company is going to have a tough time unless it relooks its director and VP level duties, overhead costs, and core competencies. – less

Great place to work
Quality Assurance Auditor (Current Employee), Johnstown, PAJune 28, 2012
Pros: great management!
Cons: long periods away from home, hostile environment
A typical day at work normally a 8 - 6pm job with conditions being austire since its in Afghanistan. Constant surveillance of NATO contractors ensuring Statement of Work compliance.
Management is top notch, co-workers are diverse of backgrounds.
Hardest part of the job is being deployed, and long periods from home in a hostile environment.
Best part – more... of the job is being a force muliplier for NATO to ensure contract compliance, creating a change culture to ensure a quality service that is being paid for NATO is what is being delivered. – less

Great Company not so great managment
RIPPLE Transition Analyst (Former Employee), Camp Pendleton, CAJune 27, 2012
I was hired as a temp, I worked diligently to impress the management. Local management was great but reach back support to the east coast was less then compitent. Regardless after 6 months of hard work I was only offfered the opportunity to move to another state to work on a temp status. I respectfully declined and submitted my 2 weeks notice.

Perfect example of the old-boy network
Staff (Former Employee), Johnstown, PADecember 13, 2011
Pros: pretty nice people, up to a point
Cons: management can't get out of its own way, a culture where rumors rule, over-reliance on one-year contracts
I wouldn't recommend CTC to a dog I didn't like. Over-reliance on one-year contracts leads to high staff turnover and limited advancement. Slow management that is unresponsive to staff needs. Good benefits, though.
