    I have been working at Architel full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is an extremely talented and intelligent group of people that work at Architel. Very friendly and professional group. They offer really awesome benefits like: personal trainer, free drinks (unlimited water/soft drinks), paid catered lunch for employees on Friday, free massages to employees, they celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and really honestly foster a family environment. The CEO, COO, and Management really care about employees. Everyone has their clients and co-workers best interest at heart. They provide ongoing training for employees. They an open door policy and I sincerely am thankful to work at such an amazing place with such wonderful people. If you sit down with them and concretely discuss your career path and what you would like to do do they will provide you with the tools and resources to help you get there either at our company or for future companies.

    Cons

    I sincerely can't think of one. Anytime something has bothered me I feel comfortable enough to address my manager or CEO or COO. Once they realize something is bothering an employee they will do whatever it takes to make the situation right or provide a better support system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue doing what you are doing. You have provided such a professional, hardworking, and family environment. If you keep growing and operating under this principal skys the limit to how successful we will continue being!

    I worked at Architel full-time

    Pros

    The people, The Management was good, The location is fantastic. Architel boasts some of the smartest NOC Engineers I have ever had the privilege of working with.

    Cons

    Tough industry requiring long hours and extreme patience with non technical clients. SMOKE FREE Environment. NO exceptions!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in your employees. Your location is great, your management is great, your technologies are great but your best people are quite underpaid. (That said.. there is a lot more to an opportunity than just $)

    I have been working at Architel

    Pros

    The company is growing rapidly and as a result there are lots of opportunities for advancement. The company's client's include some of the biggest and most respected companies in Dallas including Trammel Crow. These client's have some of the most cutting edge networks allowing for knowledge acquisition not available from smaller companies. In the past twelve months the company has doubled in size and moved from the Infomart to Campbell Center. The new gym and trainer is a great perk.

    Cons

    The company's fast growth is a little painful. Some members of the team who were perfect for the company just six months earlier don't seem to be able to keep up. Management often fails to realize when someone is over their head until it is too late. Had the company recognized certain team member's struggles and gave them additional training they could have been saved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on retaining your long time employees by giving them training BEFORE they fail.

    Pros

    Architel offers engineers a broad set of technologies to work with. Architel makes it easy to keep up with new technologies. The company offers 18 days of paid time off to new hires. The company provides free health insurance to employees. The company is located in the INFOMART and offers an onsite gym at no cost, a Starbucks, a bar and a cafeteria. Architel's software division, Big in Japan, also builds cool stuff and provides a potential area for professional growth for interested employees.

    Cons

    The company is small (under 50 employees) and thus the opportunities for advancement are limited. The company does not pay for family health insurance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow the business! Explain promotions and terminations.
