    Interesting

    Senior Network Engineer (Former Employee) Huntsville, AL

    ProsPersonnel at local site. The customer was great to work for, the IT-Chief possessed a CCNA, but knew very little about how the systems worked and gave the customer conflicting information concerning how the products actually operated and the way the customer was charged.

    ConsNo interaction with upper management. Management refused to take a proactive role to insure it's personnel were properly utilized, while protecting their supervisor who had emotional and medical difficulties.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind management staff that actually interacts with their support staff on a personable level.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Job not Career

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe atmosphere of working for this company is very professional and a textbook Corporate environment. Pay was equal to job description.

    ConsThe company is more interested in pennies than people. You are part of a greater machine bit that will cost you a sense of individuality and creativity that makes a good job a great career. Promotion and recognition are difficult to achieve.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember your employees may have been chosen to work for your company but YOU have to make them choose to STAY. There is more to a successful company than the profit margin, especially as the company can only really succeed if the employees are fully invested also.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
