    Pros

    Employees have access to continuing education opportunities, teamwork is encouraged and management participates actively in the day to day interaction with customers. The company is growing which provides career opportunities. Some fun perks are home internet is subsidized, mileage is paid for and they provide company shirts/laundry service.

    Cons

    There is a certain amount of "chaos" that comes from supporting multiple clients at the same time. We run a service desk and the incoming calls are generally people frustrated with something not working correctly. The work can be stressful at times and evening/weekend projects happen on a regular basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue focusing on growth and career opportunities.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Versent in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    Completed a basic phone interview about a my skills and a description of the job and was asked in for a face to face interview. Went in and interviewed with one of the partners and covered basic interview questions and very little technical discussion. Was called back to have an interview with a lead tech, was asked about basic troubleshooting ideas, network basics, how to clean a computer that has a virus on it. Basic stuff like that. Was very unimpressed with their facitility and they emphasized that it was temporary and would be moving eventually.

    Interview Questions
    • A detiailed question about Cisco IOS commands and terminology   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate a guranteed pay raise of 5% after 6 months. I would ask for a guranteed raise at some certain point, otherwise you will not get a raise while you work there.
