    Pros

    Great place to start your career in enterprise networking. Very knowledgeable staff and willing to teach newbies. Great management team that always looks out for their employees, as long as they are willing to put in the work.

    Cons

    No real upward mobility. Easy to start stagnating if you're not motivated or ambitious.

    Pros

    For a large company regulated company, they get how to do business. They treat their employees with respect and compensate them above the market rate.

    Cons

    They are limited in network product offerings as North America is not built out at this time.

    Advice to Management

    They do not have the sales resources to bring in the many opportunities in certain areas of the country.

    Pros

    Autonomy, Remote working, Client Driven, Account Driven

    Cons

    No professional growth progression. You're tasked to a client from anywhere up to a few weeks to a few years at one particular client. I only stepped into the office twice in my 5+ years of working with them -- once when they interviewed me, and once to sign on. Definitely a hardware telecomms shop that once tried to branch out into the custom software and services world but failed due to management and domain knowledge. They ended up acquiring other companies which succeeded in this market, but those single-site companies had no idea on how to work when resources are distributed globally.

    Advice to Management

    Start focusing more on your resource's need to prevent turn over and stagnation. Top resources will want continual career growth.
