    I have been working at BestIT full-time (less than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!!

    Pros

    There is absolutely nothing positive to say.

    Cons

    Owners are a nightmare. No leadership. They don't trust anyone. They treat staff poorly. They lie to clients. I can't believe they are in business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do everyone a favor and shut it down

    Former Employee - IT Auditor in Phoenix, AZ
    Former Employee - IT Auditor in Phoenix, AZ

    I worked at BestIT full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    - Still some solid people working there.
    - Small close nit environment.
    - Free snacks/drinks
    - Benefits were decent

    Cons

    - Turnover! This place turns through people like I change my socks!
    - False promises are made all of the time.
    - Employees are not valued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new owners! This place had potential but was cursed with people running the company that have no business working in the MSP place.

    Pros

    nothing is good about working here

    Cons

    everything is awful. it's a nightmare. I would not recommend this place to my worst enemy.
    Neither owner has a clue what they are doing and knows nothing about managing people or performing consulting work.

    Clients BEWARE. these guys will take your money and give you junk in return... if anything at all!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're idiots. the only reason you get any stars is because this system requires a minimum of one. you don't deserve any!

    Pros

    I really can't think of anything i can say would be a pro at this company. The snack bar maybe?

    Cons

    Just as the title suggests. It's an unstable work environment, high turn around, employees constantly stressed out, micro-management from hell. There's no culture, most ideas or initiatives are shot down. If you're cool with wondering if you'll have a job tomorrow.... every single day, this is the place for you.

    I have been working at BestIT full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at BestIT as a contractor

    Pros

    There are none, the work is not fulfilling and morale is low.

    Cons

    They have no idea how to manage software developers or software projects. They consistently lie to the clients telling them pieces of functionality are done and then hound the developers to get them done faster because they've already represented them as done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do some introspective work and realize how you are treating your employees. Your turnover rates are high for a reason.

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

    Pros

    On some weeks fruit would be delivered to the break room. There were also some snacks and every once in a while lunch would be purchased. You may be lucky to work with a talented person or two before they inevitably leave or get fired abruptly. Oh, and race cars.

    Cons

    The only people that seem to stay for any length of time are either too inexperienced to have the same job elsewhere or are essentially stuck because of immigration status. The company basically stays afloat because of one contract while the rest of the customers are second tier and constantly have issues because there aren't resources to handle them. The sales team is constantly over promising while searching for "whale" contracts that the business is totally unprepared to handle.

    Aside from the ethical issues with the business, employee morale is low, facilities are inadequate, there are minimal benefits, and the company website is embarrassing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From top to bottom there is no accountability or integrity. Eventually the place will burn enough bridges to disappear. Hopefully everyone else be smart enough to move on beforehand.

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

    Pros

    There was NOTHING positive or good about working here! Management (or micro-management) takes a dim view of the employees and feels that they "are like children and have to be treated that way".

    Cons

    No Training, no real organization structure, no business plan, no strategy, no business models.

    Complete Chaos!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You don't have a clue what you are doing. Stick to racing.
