I worked at C.S.T. Consultants full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

A small percentage of employees are decent and competent. Good benefits and time off

Cons

Management is top heavy. There are more Directors, VP's, Sr. VP's than there are actual employees. People are promoted based on tenure, not on merit and capability. Lots of political stuff and culture is closed minded and staff primarily consists of people who have been there for 20+ years. Lots of pointless meetings for the sake of having meetings. In the time that I was there, I have seen multiple Managers and regular staff terminated. One day they are here. The next day they are gone. No reason given. Tenured staff are aware that the company does a "purge" of staff every November. This is the place you come to if you want your career to go no where, it you want to bang you head against the wall in frustration, and if you want to spend your days trying to get things done, but constantly being stymied. Thought the benefits and salary are above average, it doesn't make up for the fact that Directors and VP's have no direction and focus. And when things do not go as planned, they will throw you under the bus to take the blame. This is the type of place where. The culture is like high school, where Director level people will complain about you to your own Director if you say or do something they don't like. No one has the spine to call out the elephant in the room, in order to actually move ahead to get stuff done and favoritism is rampant. They all want to close their eyes and pretend they aren't part of the problem. Honestly, coming to work here was one of the biggest mistakes of my life

Advice to Management

for a company that is less than 100 people, you don't need 50 Directors and Senior Management. Get rid of the people who are just occupying a seat, and wake up. Address the problems you are already aware of and stop pretending it doesn't exist and that you aren't part of it
