    Pros

    The people in the Phoenix off are great, the atmosphere is a fun relax place to get work done. They do great work for the community and you have every chance to work on any project that comes up, It's a Team environment and I will miss them as my project completed and the work is done.

    Cons

    Every Company has a few bad apples like Southwest Airlines, they are a great company, just because you have 1 bad experience with a flight or flight crew, doesn't make the company bad. This has been identified and the company is working to make it better.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent, this is a small family (Company) people (Employee's) like to hear what's going on (Good or Bad)

    Pros

    Great mix of skilled people with wonderful personalities. I enjoy coming to work every day. Everyone is treated equally, whether they are jr. staff or executive management. Even the CEO sits in a cube with the rest of us. We have fun, and we work hard. But the importance for time off is not lost- and it is given to us to ensure we have time with family, rest, and rejuvenate. The level of collaboration just can't be beat. Its like no other place I've worked at before.

    Cons

    Travel can get heavy at times. This is to be expected when you lead the life of a successful professional. Executive leadership tries to temper this whenever they can- and they are good at giving some extra time off. Training needs attention- there is a lack of support for professional training.

    Advice to Management

    Consider adding a training budget for every employee and require that they complete XX hours of professional training every year.

    This place is a total joke. Look at the other reviews. Potential employees or clients beware.

    Pros

    The break room has free soda. Many new employees due to such high turnover. A perfect example of how not to run a business. Or, how to earn money for a race car team.

    Cons

    There is extremely low morale due to the dishonest management practices. Both employees and clients are lied to daily.

    Advice to Management

    I cannot believe this place is still around. This company is a nightmare and you should be ashamed of calling yourselves professionals.

    Pros

    Health Benefits good. Some talent people on projects.

    Cons

    Project Managers unorganized, poor client requirements gathering. no project planning or time lines. No real understanding of software development or project controls. Managers manages by choas methodology. Nobody gets hired to be kept long term. Very high turn over. More like a body shop with a nice facade. Management does not learn from mistakes or care to listen to engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen, learn and seek feedback from developers and architects. Hire real project managers. Keep good people. Offer training.

    Pros

    The company culture is team-based and open-door. Very helpful and caring staff who are willing to get you what you need to do your job. People appear to be mostly happy working here. Personal contributions are positively noted and appreciation is evident.

    Cons

    IT can be a hard industry, and if you are on the service side there can be a lot of pressure to meet deadlines and work unplanned hours. IT is not known for providing a 9-5 work day, but this company tries very hard to provide a good work-life balance to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!!

    Pros

    BestIT tends to work more like an architecture firm, there is no sales department and everyone that a customer might speak with has a lot of value to bring to the table.

    Cons

    Would like to see more team building events to bring the company even closer together.

    Advice to Management

    The more management can share its vision the better. Everyone really respects and enjoys the management. It would be good to hear from them more often.
