I worked at C.S.T. Consultants full-time

Pros

Company benefits were good, many of the people in the company were nice. Would recommend the company itself but not specific departments unless some concerns would be addressed.

Cons

The hiring manager did not understand what people with my title do. The job description for the data analyst role was completely different than the actual role itself, spent most of the time working on redundant powerpoints and excel sheets that are more suited for an administrator. This individual was constantly angry and does not know how to communicate or empower subordinates. After a few instances of abusive behavior from this supervisor, human resources was spoken to and they did not do anything in regards to these issues, especially after other employees had walked out of the job. Overall, not bad people on a personal level but respectively the department I had worked for should understand what someone does before hiring and human resources should pick up on patterns of poor behavior and high turnover.

Advice to Management

Understand the needs and requirements of your departments, and understand what the title of a role does at other companies, do not pretend to be an analytically driven department when not understanding different forms of analytics. Human resources should pick up on cues as well from employees after seeing issues within a department.
