    I worked at Forsythe Technology full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Teamwork was the strongest core value at this company. Compensation was fair and often higher for comparable positions in this region. Ample opportunities to access internal training resources as well as external training options. Leadership provided clear cascaded goal setting and very open with it's employees about quarterly financial results. Greatest pro is that this is an ESOP company.

    Cons

    The entire compay (particularly IT and Sales teams) work long hours especially during peak times of year and holidays. For seven years, I worked every New Years Eve with no consideration to work/life balance. Additionally as a Manager I was underutilized by my Director. Culture is top down communication style. More skip levels and team feeback would be helpful to improve overall culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on upgrading and integrating stronger HR policies and practices to improve the overall culture (including people of color and women in upper management and acceptance of diversity). Your competitors are much further ahead on establishing these policies while protecting their employees. It was my experience that slow progress was being made while I worked there, but faster and firmer efforts must be made if you are to keep up in this industry and your competitiors. Also focus on work-life balance. A happy workforce is willing to go the extra mile for you.
