    I worked at CompuCom

    Pros

    Multiple locations with many clients to work with

    Cons

    Too much of a money grab from clients not shared with staff only with Senior Management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share more with the staff who do all the work.

    I have been working at CompuCom full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people at the work sites have a lot of knowledge. It is a good place to learn a lot.

    Cons

    This company rarely gives raises. I have been at Compucom for 4 years without one and everyone I have talked to has had the same experience. Most say that the only way to make more money is to get experience here then go somewhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop telling employees that the company is having a hard time, so no raises. Then a week later post the company profits for the last quarter as an outstanding quarter with profits up xx million.

    I have been working at CompuCom full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Clients offer opportunity to work in high tech environments

    Cons

    Corporate culture is dismal and completely detached from the reality of the associates. Doomed to fail unless radical course corrections are made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what your associates and first level managers say without dismissing them. They are what makes the company succeed.

    I have been working at CompuCom full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Compucom may be an okay place to start if you are just out of school... if you are desperate

    Cons

    Compucom has no room for growth, no pay raises in 5+ years. Management is abusive and / or incompetent. They always react putting out fires, never thinking ahead. Compensation is low end of the scale for the roles you are asked to perform. You can change roles but your title is always the same and, it is a "lateral move" with no changes in salary but always more work. I have not had a review in the 5+ years I have worked here. This place is a revolving door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please recognize good people, and reward them. Tell the truth, and be respectful of your employees, as you would have them be of you.

    I have been working at CompuCom full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Besides negotiating a great wage, what I can see from the company so far there are no Pros.

    Cons

    There is no communication in the company. When I was hired I had to consistently call to see if I was to get an offer or not. Should have walked away at that point.

    Current position, the manager does not like their job and staff do not respect them either. Management is out of the loop of what really happens, has no idea what really goes on.

    When in state of crisis there is no communication unless you track it down yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a communication specialist in the organization to get you setup so you know how to properly LISTEN and supply relevant information to your associates. Or any information for that matter.

    I worked at CompuCom

    Pros

    The only thing that was positive about compucom was the working staff. Not the management but the employees. They try every day to make a bad situation better without the help of the company

    Cons

    Very poor salary. management is out of touch with the employees and does not want to hear anything negative. Cannot see the big picture and will lose accounts.
    some things you buy at the dollarama store and you know it is only worth a buck so you are okay with that. Technology definitely should not be done by dollarama. There is a reason that the big ones are still around. IBM, HP because qualtiy processes will show themselves

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    quit worrying about you backsides and the account and give constructive advice,. Being a yes man does not make a good leader. You hire good people and then take there advice not manage them to death.

    I have been working at CompuCom

    Pros

    they do advise you often of new positions within the company of other projects. The do keep you informed of what is happening. The are good at praising you for your work

    Cons

    The compensation is very low. The contracts say that cannot leave them until contract runs out which is strange. Also the contracts state they will not pay any overtime but they will send out off hour jobs to do. They state they have flat management but use there SME staff as management without compensating them tor the extra work load.
    Constant and monthly reviews are a little annoying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not see why need to review performance monthly. It seems a little much.
