    Pros

    Training is pretty good
    Work load is barable for the pay
    Really layed back when call volume is low.
    My manager and supervisor was very helpful when I had questions.
    The benefits are really good.
    Good position to get your feet wet in the IT field.
    Looks very good on a resume.

    Cons

    Was promised a raise that I never received after 6 months.
    30 minute lunches
    The pay is way too low for the amount of work done.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep this Helpdesk fully staffed as much as possible to keep the stress levels down of your employees. Give raises to those that earn it. Don't punish everyone because a few people because a few people are not meeting their performance metrics. Don't hire people to do IT work and then give them CSR pay.

    Pros

    Standard benefits/compensation for similialr companies. Good work environment with flexibility.

    Work is project based. If your direct supervisor is bad it can be difficult to get the support you need.

    Pros

    Fun environment, great people, never got the feeling that my opinions didn't matter despite the lack of tenure, Overall the best job I have ever had

    Cons

    Well there are the occasional longer than expected days but that is true of any job. Also there are the occasional GS-13s that kind of looked down their noses at the contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Limit the exposure of the newer employees to the government types unless they absolutely need to have it
