Alright first job

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It's an ok place to start but don't expect to get anywhere. There is no training, no standards, poor communication and too many egos competing. Perfect place for complacency and mediocrity.

The Workplace is great. Corporate is...... can't believe they haven't gone belly up

I work at a remote location. The people there are great. Can't say enough nice stuff about them. The corporate though is so incompetent, with such overbearing attitudes and such a complete lack of concern or considerations for their employees and poor business practices that make absolutely NO sense, that it's a wonder the company has managed to survive as long as they have.

Pros

flex time. Great on site management and coworkers

Cons

Corporate. Has to be one of the worst companies to work for EVER

Working at Proactive felt like family

We were a very small based company with only 25 employees, I was only 1 of the females in this group and it felt like I had a swarm of big brothers watching over me. Yes we worked hard and always tended to our tasks and responsibilities but we also had such great times together as a team. We watched out fir one another celebrated each other personal events. When I walked into that office I felt home

Great place to advance your IT skills

We start the day and answer calls form users that are having issues with classroom computers and AV equipment. There are 750 classrooms that we support around base. The people are easy to get along and work with and there is always something new to learn every day. I have learned about active directory and SCCM. The range of equipment that we work on is vast and are always encountering new challenges to sharpen your IT troubleshooting skills.

Pros

great place to learn and advance your skills

Cons

contract

Great Part Time Job

I really love working this part time job. Management is wonderful and staff/team members are great to have as co workers. The work is very easy and providing customer service is second nature.

Your experience matters.

Help out others considering your employer. Rate your employer.

Great place to work.

Felt great when I would write scenarios that would meet the Marines requirement for there training. Whatever it would take to at least make a small difference in more Marines coming home safe from war because they had a great training. The only con of the work is the schedule. The schedule is constantly changing. So its hard to make plans around your personal life.

Cut throat business approach. Incompetent management.

Was "laid off" because the company felt it was more important to downsize its employees to become more competitive for the upcoming contract rebid. No thank you for your years of dedicated service, no severance pay, just "leave now and don't come back here" was all I received from the Program Manager. This company does not care about it's employees AT ALL. You are expendable so long as they can outbid their competitors for government contracts. The irony, a new employee was brought on 1-week before I was "laid off." Of course, he is making $3 less than everyone else. You can figure that move out for yourself. Pay is low and inconsistent. There are $1-3 pay differences between employees with the same job title and experience level. Makes no sense. Hard-work and integrity will get you nowhere. No pay raises, no opportunity for advancement. Site manager is about as incompetent and lazy as I've ever experienced. He knows very little about the actual work that is done, nor does he care to learn. He was rarely at work and when he was, he was either working on his car or watching youtube and facebook in his office. Still unsure what his actually responsibilities were as I never seen him do any of the work he was paid to do. Same can be said about other employees. Several rarely came to work and when they did working on their cars was the priority. Working on personal projects was the most common occurrence. Complaining about it isolated you from the "herd" and accomplished nothing since management was part of the problem. Integrity is in short supply.  - 

Pros

None

Cons

Low pay, incompetent management, no honor or integrity from all levels of management

The concerns expressed above did occur and management was notified. If you read more closely, management is part of the problem. It's very unlikely that the Site Lead would push employee concerns up the chain of command when he is the very source of the problem. The reality is that I did complain and those complaints did nothing but get me cherry picked to be eliminated so I wouldn't cause anymore problems for those individuals, i.e the Site Lead, that were the source of my complaints. Another unfortunate reality is that the Program Manager was manipulated by a half wit, i.e. the Site Lead, because he was unconcerned with what was really happening and more concerned with the bottom line. And, I suspect you know this to be true, which is likely a contributing factor to why ProActive lost the contract anyway.Word to the wise, if you're educated, possess strong work ethic and integrity, take your skills elsewhere and don't bother waste years of your life working for company like ProActive Technologies, LLC.

When government contracts are competed or sole source award, they have contract period terms (durations of time). In the current economy of DOD related activities, government contractors like any other business must be competitive and devise their staffing and other strategies to be successful competitors. Costs are a significant part of contract award decisions by the government, therefore, the company must evaluate all aspects of their business proposal for new or rebid contracts. Even with costs or staffing reductions, companies may not be successful in their bid for new or existing contracts. This process is not limited to ProActive, but any business. If the statement regarding management and peers occurredl, It is unfortunate that concerns expressed above were not brought to management' attention to investigate and take appropriate action.

Un safe working environment

When I started at Proactive Technologies 5 years ago, was a family oriented, friendly and save work environment. Within the last year Proactive Technologies became a very hostile and unsafe working environment in which management treat non management employees with no respect. Management use verbal abuse and intimidation directed to non management employees. For the last year I was in fear for my safety at Proactive Technologies. The hardest part of the Job there was not knowing who and at what level of argument and intimidation I was going to encounter on that day. I was praying GOD on my way to work for not to have anyone to pick on me and to have a good day. Not always worked.

Pros

N/a

Cons

Work long Hours with no extra pay and be expected to do so.

Unfortunately, this statement is only part and not the whole of the circumstances which the individual articulates their statement. The company has been and is very considerate of their employees but must manage performance to meet or exceed customers expectations. When an employee' performance is below expectations, performance management initiatives must be implemented to help the employee to recognize and correct such deficiencies to an acceptable level of performance. This objective is not always achieved as desired, which results in the employee separation from the company voluntarily or involuntarily.
