Support from management

Management elements were semi-dysfunctional in supporting high achievers in difficult situations, tending to rely too heavily on bureaucratic administrators insulated from profit/loss situations.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Observed at least one instance, maybe two where successful senior managers were let go for nebulous reasons. The resulting vacuums were not effectively mitigated.

Career Development

OJT development and growth is all that is provided in reality.

Overall compensation for your work

Pay was good and bonuses can be good but seemed to be erratically parceled out with no feed back.

Company Image

Has a good image with many customers - based on results.

Job Security

Job security is typical for a firm largely dependent upon government contracts. Portage tries hard to retain its employees when times are tough.

Workplace Safety

Safety rules at Portage

Suggestions for improvement

  • Reward productive employees with a financial stake in the company. This had been announced but never occurred.

What I like about the company

Portage had a very good business development focus which produced great opportunity for staff willing to work away from the home office. Being a small business, it was relatively easy to get ownership involvement and support for necessary decisions and actions.

What I dislike about the company

Portage was too risk averse, tending to rely too heavily on maintaining bureaucratic status-quo rather than supporting innovation.
