    I have been working at CCI Systems

    Pros

    Laid back, flexible hours, good people, room for advancement. Very knowledgeable people to learn from. Able to work at your own pace.

    Cons

    Lack of feedback. Sometimes poor communication from upper management.. lack of organization. The building needs to be renovated badly. Poor office layout...a bit dirty as well.

    I worked at CCI Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    CCI has earned a strong reputation as a Cisco systems integrator of IP and Optical networking products, video headend systems and RF plant systems for cable TV operators. The company's Networks (equipment integration) division has a long relationship with Cisco and a high level of in house technical expertise. CCI has also developed an excellent though fledgeling managed services center located in Iron Mountain.

    The benefits package offered by CCI are not bad for a company of this size. The medical package is very good, they match 401k, and, after a wait period, employees become vested in the company's ESOP program.

    Cons

    Bonus and commission systems sound great up front but in reality they don't pay that well. Sales people from outside of Iron Mountain rarely stay with the company for 5 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider working on career management of those outside of Iron Mountain.

    I have been working at CCI Systems full-time (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..

    I have been working at CCI Systems full-time (less than an 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.

    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.
