Core Java Developer, Consultant (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – November 18, 2018
My contact person is very responsive as is the human resource department. I work as a contractor for another company where the development position is very busy but very interesting. The team I have been placed on is exceptionally cooperative and the people are very pleasant to work with.
Other Work Experience (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – June 26, 2018
Coming into CEI I wanted a place that would let me grow, stretch my thought and ability, and be a value add and not just another number. The management team and my department have let me do that. I really think they have their employees in mind when they make decisions. Truly a fun and exciting environment daily.
Growth, advancement, laid-back dress code, Be apart of growing organization.
Technical Recruiter (Current Employee) – Plymouth Meeting, PA – April 12, 2017
There's the potential to earn a lot of commission but management and metrics put the odds against you. Benefits are lacking. CEO is extremely metrics driven and disconnected with the branch's status outside of the numbers. Lack of leadership and development leads to a very high turnover rate.
Use caution accepting a position with this company
Regional Resource Manager/IT Recruiter (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – January 7, 2013
Would not recommend working for this company. The "good" reviews you see on them are more then likely created by a select few individuals trying to pump up the company image. Management is inexperienced and will do anything or throw anyone "under the bus" to make themselves look good. The internal workings of the company show that they are a small company trying to bigger then they are way before they are ready to be. If they treat their employees better, they would get more productivity out of them. After several months of employment I came to realize they lied to me before I even had the position about their turn over rates.
As far as clients go, use caution when doing business with them, if they can squeeze and extra 15 cents out of a client, they will.
inexperienced management, small company trying to be bigger then they are.
Senior Key Accounts Manager (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – September 25, 2012
Small company with lots of turnover. Good place to get feet wet for sales in staffing but not a permanent home long term. Management loves to micromanage and over manage despite lack of management experience.
Little room for advancement, Indian-run company with an Indian attitude towards employees
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh PA – September 15, 2012
There is little continuity in employees - tremendous turnover for a company this size. Little concern for employee ambitions and job satisfaction - you're told your role and expected to not be involved with any other part of the organization. Sales people have little respect with senior management and most technical staff (seen as a dime a dozen). Benefits are middling at best - had to pay monthly premium for first time starting last year with fewer benefits - found out coverage is $340/mth, which tell you how cheap this company is. They refuse to match on the 401K. Let's just call it what it is - a company run by a couple of cheapsake owners, one of which believes that salespeople should not be paid their full commissions on their plan - their General Counsel, who signs off on all commissions, will do anything to not pay you. I would recommend joining this company only if you have NO OTHER DECENT OFFERS - you'll either be there after 6 months or fired.
inferior benefits, cheap commission plan, management obsessed with bench time for consultants, no investment in technnical practices, no paid professional development
