    I worked at CompuCom (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Co workers seem to be the only best part of the job

    Cons

    I spent 6 years working for CompuCom, management is bad they lie to you and you don't get paid enough for what you deal with. Was forced to take a pay 25% Pay cut
    Poor management. They don't support their employees very well. You have to learn it all on your own, then they blame you if it's not done correctly. Found it hard to not to work extra hours and I never got paid for the hrs I did overtime. I found the area of coverage to work overwhelming. They don't have enough techs to cover all the work they have to do efficiently. I rather flip burgers at McDonald than going back there again. sleazy Unprofessional management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dump the low end retail clients and pay the employees what they are work as professionals!

    Probably a good company, just not on the US bank contract!

    I worked at CompuCom

    Pros

    US bank project
    Great team members, an honest attempt at showing moral boost when things started out slowly.
    Good amount of knowledge on team, and at times team members stepped up to help work heavy work load.

    Cons

    Extreme lack of direction.
    Refusal to actually hear, and I stress again: "Hear" what the technicians need to make
    for a more conducive work environment. Processes are extremely hodge podged, and
    everything is a complete mess! Techs are expected to clean up mess, adhere to broken
    processes, and learn there way through a broken environment, in which we are mostly
    in the dark about. 1.5 help, and call coordination help is almost nonexistent do in part to
    not enough employees to handle techs on US bank project.

    Also forced to work under hostile conditions with US bank IT employees who are
    in the process of being laid off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop for a second, and ask yourselves: Why are we struggling to keep a tight lid on this project? Why is 95% of this contract an absolute nightmare, in which there is demand for overtime, and why everyone is complaining that there jobs are being made to be 10x harder then it needs to be?

    Stop micro managing, listen to your techs, and realize that the bottom line are the technicians who are actually out in the field, and dealing with end user's on this project daily. Just sitting there and developing more broken processes are not the answer. Listen, and listen well, or lose this contract.
