- Strategos Consulting LLC20.Jul 2017
Overall not that bad. The company is devoted to clients, but doesn't inspire creativity from it's Training Department employees or 1099 contractors.
Support from management
Leadership does not set realistic goals because the goals are offten changed and micromanaged. Employees are rarely given the chance to express ideas in the decision making process. All of the decisions are made by Upper Executive Leadership.
Yes, full-time, part-time and 1099 contractors work well together. Upper Executive Leadership does not communicate or work well with Training Department employees.
Freedom to work independently
No, not entirely you are allowed to start, complete or maintain projects, but you will be constantly micromanaged by Company's Upper Executive Leadership.
No, lack of regular communication from the top level down. There is a constant feeling of secrecy or limited privileged only information to key personnel.
I honestly don't know.
Attitude towards older colleagues
No one older than what I assumed to be age 50 worked in the Training Department.
The only additional training I received was directly related to contract requirements. No good opportunities, bonuses or pay raises.
Overall compensation for your work
No, as mentioned previously I never received any bonuses or salary pay raises.
Office / Work Environment
Comfortable working environment, but limited on technology (decent computers, printers, storage devices etc..).
There was a container for recycling paper, but I believe that the program belonged to the other company that shared the office suite with Strategos.
The company says that it values work-life balance, but if you are a full-time employee you will definitely work overtime and not get compensated for it.
In the beginning yes I was very proud to work for Strategos. After some time had gone by and I noticed how fellow full-time and part-time employees were under payed and never received any raises or bonuses. 1099 contractors were lowballed on working hours, and not asked to come back to work for the company on new contracts even though they were fully qualified and capable to do the job.
No stability, mostly temporary 1099 contract work. This company is known for laying off personnel.
Yes, the whole building is handicap accessible
I assume the building is safe. I never received any building safety training.
Yes, most of the work is very challenging. I experienced job satisfaction many times while work there.
Inclusive / Diverse
No, only Upper Executive Leadership ideas are accepted.
Suggestions for improvement
- Classes or courses in communication, company budgeting and business ethics.
What I like about the company
Challenging work and great job satisfaction.
What I dislike about the company
How employees are under valued, not compensated/rewarded for hard work and micromanaged.
