    Great opportunity but unfortunately wasn't the right fit at the right time for me personally

    I worked at Augmentity full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -lots of hard working, friendly, great people
    -very strong, knowledgeable solution architects
    -top level management has an excellent history of success in the industry
    -learned a lot of good things while I was there
    -location is excellent and office space is great for the company size

    Cons

    -challenging work environment which isn't a problem if you're a hard worker
    -lots of turnover and negativity lately but i think the company has the right people in place to turn this around

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing and the future is bright.
    If I could make one piece of constructive criticism, it would be to mentor people more. Selling IT is very hard and challenging.

    I worked at Augmentity full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Augmentity had the best sales director/manager I had ever worked for and the sales plan gave you the opportunity to make a lot of money

    Cons

    There were a couple of sales reps who thought that they were better than everyone else and they quit and took a lot of business with them. The new company, Lumenate, is horrible to work for...they are disorganized and uncommunicative. The Lumenate "executive" team is the worst group of resources I have ever had the displeasure to work for as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think it is too late for Lumenate in the Midwest and you should pull out. You now have a horrible reputation and no one wants to work for you. You should have kept the Sales Director in place and you would have had a great shot at accomplishing something.

    I worked at Augmentity full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Most of the engineers and sales people were very nice. I enjoyed helping them out and the interaction.

    Cons

    Too much turnover here and while I liked the people I worked with, not enough experience being hired on the sales side. Too many inside sales people and front office staff. Opportunities were a lot smaller in size than what I was used to being engaged with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire seasoned sales people to bring in larger opportunities.

    I worked at Augmentity full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I thought the company had a great team and everyone was talking about heading in the right direction. Even though some of the teams kept to themselves, there were people who wanted to help me succeed.

    Cons

    The first 3 months it looked as if everything was heading the right direction. The past 3 months, everything seemed to fall apart. Everyone in my sales team was let go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't think it was fair to not give us clear direction, then let everyone go when we didn't "meet" expectations.

    Pros

    It HAD really good people with a lot of potential and friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Crazy turnover.......The management doesn't give any information out to employees regarding anything. It seems they keep everything secret from them, only to find out things by other employees so it destroys morale. Most people have left or are leaving. All the other negative reviews are not lying to you...and I have no idea why the positive reviews even exist..... read the reviews carefully before deciding on anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of your upper level managers who are toxic to the company. They are doing a terrible job and have pushed morale to the lowest levels possible. Probably way to late now.

    Pros

    Team enabled leadership provides great communication for gaining net new business with support to back up the most technical installations. Experienced top line managers with customer focus in mind at all times. Driven for doing the right thing for their ever growing customer base.

    Cons

    Not much on this segment as management likes to involve the company on where we are at, where we are going and the metrics to make sure that happens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on hiring the very best team with positive attitudes by adding goal orientated producers.

    Pros

    A very open company, where you can reach out to anyone at any level at anytime.
    By far the best compensation structure I have ever seen in the industry.
    Massive potential and growth, because I see it every day.
    This is the best career and company I have ever worked for, especially in the IT industry.

    Cons

    It seems like a lot of these recent reviews are from disgruntled former employees who weren't exactly pulling their own weight.... I have nothing negative to say about this company, the leadership, or anything in general now... that the black cloud environment is gone. There was a lot of negativity, whining, and lack of work-ethic before. It seems like a whole new company once those factors removed themselves and/or were removed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. The ship is on the right course.

    I worked at Augmentity full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity - everyone has left so there is plenty of open territory to cover from a sales aspect. Large office space. Some sales/lead gen tools are provided. From my experience, they paid on time and were accurate more times than not.

    Cons

    Massive turnover. I agree that after seeing a few bad reviews, management/ownership has requested that current employers write something positive to counteract them. Unfortunately, only someone from outside the industry would consider employment here as the company name has become tarnished. Poor resources, high turnover, very little training, lack of proven leadership experience, poor thought leadership and a bad name in the industry have created a messy mix that will be hard to turn around under current direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am not a disgruntled former employee, as I left on my own when I saw the direction this organization was heading under poor guidance. However, they need to start treating employees better or massive turnover will continue. Employees should be viewed as they are a part of the big picture and more of a family then a pawn to selfish goals while executives are in secret closed door meetings with business consultants.

    I worked at Augmentity full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I could sell anything for storage and networking, but couldn't actually sell because lack of vendor support and no engineers to support the effort.

    Cons

    All the senior engineers have left and two more sales reps are on the fence. If you decide to make a sales try here, make sure you are capable and don't need engineering or vendor support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help out the sales guys. Hire and retain quality talent.
