Senior Software Engineer / Project Manager (Former Employee) – Dulles, VA – November 10, 2015
PictureVision was an awesome company - good benefits, excellent off-sites, all the fun of a "dot-comm" backed by the capital of a big company. After totally consumed, and like any very big company - acceptable and yet competitive benefits. Worked for different business units and different manager types ranging from micro-managers, to hands-off, to moderately engaged. Like most, I didn't leave the company, I left the managers for a better opportunity.
Service Desk Analyst (Current Employee) – Painted Post, NY – January 6, 2017
In the Corning, NY location CTG does very little once you have signed on. Been working through CTG for over 4 years for a Fortune 500 company in the area and there has been no salary increase or performance reviews. Have continually contacted them about other positions advertised and then never hear a word back from them. Once you sign on you can not go to another agency(to work for the same company) for 6 months after you have terminated your contract with them. There is no lateral or job advancements with them. Basically you are stuck. Also. there healthcare benefits are very expensive.
Great company to work for although needs to work on expanding
Technical Project Manager (Current Employee) – Poughkeepsie, NY – December 15, 2016
CTG is a contractor so depending where you get contracted out to determines how your day is. Contractors working at IBM do not get treated equally as full-time employees when it comes to fun events, flu vaccinations, community events, etc. CTG should push harder to make the contractors feel like part of the family.

CTG cares about its employers. Since we worked as IT contractors, our meetings with the Account Manager is very limited, but during those meetings, they see to it that all our questions and issues are answered.
Great management and peers, approachable and friendly
Field Services Manager - Administrator (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – November 17, 2016
No day was ever typical and that is what made this position so much fun. One day could be working with clients and employees, another day could be putting out "fires." I think the most fun was learning and growing everyday. As the position changed, I had many learning opportunities which I took advantage of. Moving into the Field Services Management position required HR, management and recruiting classes. My boss was great as well as upper management! Very approachable. Co-workers were awesome! Fun to work with and so helpful. The hardest part of the job was the constant switching of gears, so to speak, to provide the appropriate client and employee support. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to help so many others.
Tier 1 AIX System Administrator (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – October 28, 2016
While CTG, Inc. is a temporary employment agency, with its major client being IBM. The management of CTG does it best to work with the employee to see that all the employee's needs are accomplish. But as with any temporary employment agency it is at the direction of the major client. In this case IBM has made the choice to move off shore to seek employees.
CTG, Inc provided Technology Support services to IBM and worked as a Tier 1 System Administrator.
Working with IBM client around the world offer me the opportunity to enact with professional IT Administrator
Typical day at work consist of operating a forklift moving Lenovo computer inventory to designated shipping areas as well as counting distribution of inventory to create bulk orders for shipping to large retail corporations. I gained knowledge on computer logistics and shipping receiving and packing out orders. Had a good relationship with management as well as co-workers. We all worked as a team to ensure job and task were done effectively and efficiently. Most enjoyable part of the job was gaining experience in all areas of forklifting as well as receiving training.
Programmer Analyst (Current Employee) – Bentonville, AR – August 6, 2016
Since CTG don't have direct jobs, as a contractor I'm working at Toshiba GCS, bentonville. Since work life balance is good with Toshiba, there is no issue in that part. The recruiters are horrible at least whom i had interacted with. Because of them i face and still facing an issue with very less billing. Just because toshiba is a good client, I'm continuing here. They wont offer any benefits if you opt as a hourly based employee. Overall even though not happy with ctg, just going because toshiba is a good client to work with where the learning curve is good and getting good exposure.
Since they have only IBM and Toshiba are the clients at Bentonville area, most of the time your contracts would go as long term
Medical benefits are terrible. Pay is normal ..not so good.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Morrisville, NC – August 1, 2016
i thought working with this company was going to be great. I even turned down major companies with better pay just because I liked the work environment & the vibe from coworkers. I was warned by family members & previous employees not to take this position because they had a bad turn over rate. Of course I didn't listen & it got thrown in my face not even an complete 3 weeks into being there. Which let me know as a company they don't look out for their employees & when I asked questions in regards to my lay off....I was told that I don't want to go digging into it. Though legally I believe that when someone is laid off or fired they have the right to ask why & actually be given the reasoning. This is the type of company (especially who they are are exclusively contacted for) that you would need to watch your back.
