    Pros

    Great chance to build new skills with very worthwhile assignments. Assignments given to interns were incredibly similar to those full-time employees were working on. Great culture, great people, great hours.

    Cons

    Too much downtime at times

    Pros

    The company has a lot of opportunities where a person can make positive change and is not afraid to ask questions. The company is also very supportive of career development and encourages movement within the company as long as you prove yourself worthy of it.

    Cons

    This it not a place for a person who is looking for a clear path or a routine when it comes to work. There generally aren't a lot of set protocols and procedures in place. You will have to be willing to pick up knowledge on the fly as you work day to day. You have to be proactive and know where to get the knowledge you need to get your job done.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more interaction between different departments and business units so that we learn best practices. Continue to develop work procedures to minimize the learning curve for new employees.

    Pros

    Had a great boss who was caring and generous (in software development dept.), the people at worker level are awesome here, good work environment, good career opportunities if you work hard.

    Cons

    Somewhat limited on raises (but not non-existent), have to work long hours (10 including lunch). The 'facilities' could use an upgrade.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more generous with employees and the return on investment will be great. (Senior management.) No advice needed for line-level management. They we all very professional and great to work with.

    Pros

    I worked at the Systemax Business Services in Budapest.

    Cons

    I liked my collegues. Usually you don't have to work long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Salaries are not really competitive, so they hire the young and unexperienced. The ones with better qualities quickly move on. The management have big plans but they can't solve basic problems.
