    Current Employee - IT Manager in Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)

    I have been working at Birdstep Technology full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good location, decent coffee, "ok" salary

    Cons

    Interviewed for IT Manager / Director role -- wound up working as desktop support.

    Organization vision is muddy, organization itself is chaotic.

    Internal Product training is ill conceived and unprofessional.

    Getting anything of consequence done was a difficult task

    My direct manager was in another country and although he is an admirable and good person, it was difficult to connect with him due to the distance.

    Petty and political bickering at all levels

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Birdstep Technology in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    Interview was performed by outside contractors and was a long processes taking over a month.

    The people I interviewed ultimately were not those that I wound up working with and I did not meet my colleagues and manager until after being hired.

    The title "IT Manager" was the entirety of the job description, however what the organization needed was a desktop support worker.
