    Pros

    Great for hands on in just about every area of IT support. Very rewarding to help those who are helping others.

    The salary is low in comparison to the workload/expectations. Job description/primary duties can change at the drop of a dime.

    Advice to Management

    They should put their employees above their personal/career goals. Keep in mind you are managing People not thinhgs nor revenue.
