    Good place to work for the Area

    I have been working at CCI Systems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fairly low-stress environment, with the ability to set your pace for the day. Direct access to almost all levels of management, and you don't having someone looking over your shoulder all the time. Business casual environment with many friendly people. Benefits include Medical, dental/vision, fitness incentives.

    Cons

    Low pay if you don't have a family member in management, and some people are laid off as soon as work slows. Sometimes hard to know if you're doing a good job/meeting expectations. Raises are very low for most people but if you can ever manage to get past an entry level position (not likely) you can earn an adequate living for the area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less lay offs, perhaps by giving people work in another department if work slows.

    I have been working at CCI Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    No one watching over you. Very Little contact with upper management. A great place to use as a stepping stone.

    Cons

    Poor Benefits, No advancment, Never really knowing if your job is secure. If your not from Iron Mountain then your not in the loop, or your treated like a outsider. Cant trust anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a business model that makes money, 10% profit is not realistic..

    Pros

    None, everyone smiles at you but stabs you in the back as soon as you turn around.

    Cons

    The culture and work environment is nauseating. Low wages and very small increases. High turn around rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why bother no one's opinion counts.

    Pros

    Good team work, friendly work environment, flexible work time.

    Cons

    Not a big team, not too much technical support. Many problems need to figure by yourself.

    I worked at CCI Systems as an intern

    Pros

    Seems like there is a lot of room to move around in the company, so if you're still not sure what you want to do, or are a college student like myself, it's a great place to try something new.

    I had the opportunity to work with some really good web application developers. Teams are pretty tightly knit, with some freedom to move around on projects if you don't always like a certain one.

    Opportunities to work on large-scale corporate web applications using new technologies.

    Cons

    Not everyone is super-motivated. Minimal feedback was given, I felt like I had to shake it out of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more feedback! Especially to interns; I know everyone isnt' the same, but I felt like I had no idea whether I was doing a great job, or a horrible one.

    Good start right out of college, but don't expect to stay there longer than a few months.

    I worked at CCI Systems

    Pros

    Full time
    Good benefits
    Really were trying to get employees to make healthier choices
    Great if you need experience or something to pay bills for a little while

    Cons

    You are simply a worker, if the work slows, you go
    Lack of communication between managers and subcontractors, leaving the future uncertain
    They really aren't willing to allow flexibility, either you're there 40 hours a week when they want, otherwise you're seen as even more expendable.
    There does seem to be favoritism, along with drama

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really do agree with the other review-keep in contact with the reliable workers after they're laid off, or offer them something part time just to keep them around.

    I wasted the best years of my life to be dumped as I got older.
