    Not as good as it used to be...

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI have been with Compucom over 10 years. In the beginning, the environment was totally different than it is now, as I'm sure it is with a lot of companies. I was able to gain several skills through work experience and training.

    ConsNo raises for the past several years, increased workload.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMorale is probably at an all time low, just from what I've heard, and I've been here more than 10 years.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    What I started with here left the building

    Programming Analyst (Current Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    ProsMassive experience booster with respect to learning .NET technologies and getting used to a software development cycle. Given the pace at which things move in this place, you learn really fast. Succeed and fail fast, as it were.

    ConsThe biggest kill for me is the volatile hours. Given that during my time I've moved from an office setting to a strict work from home style, it feels almost implied that you have to be wired up and ready to go 24/7.

    That being said, having gone from seeing people and having a good level of camaraderie to being locked down in a house or coffee shop has really put a hamper on morale. This change happened with the change in upper management. It feel like we're all numbers now and it's quite depressing. I don't think I'd stick around much longer.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have some really good talent under your command. They are valuable people and work incredibly hard to deliver top notch results. Treat them like human beings with some dignity. Visit your regional offices, meet with them, shake their hand and offer them some lunch or something. Make it feel like home, because what I started with here from a mentorship and culture perspective is no longer here and it's a crying shame.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Ok place to work, I would work there again ...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) DFW, TX

    ProsPay was not too bad in my case.

    ConsBeing connected to individual contracts, leaves you exposed to changes in the relationships between companies and their contracts. Just the nature of the business really. Your a fully time contractor.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTheir is no sense of connection between company and employees. The only way I knew I worked for them was a pay check every two weeks. Some may like this ...

    Pretty good overall. I would work for them again.

    User Experience Specialist (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsHiring procedure fast and smooth. Reliable paycheck. Good communication with account manager and recruiter. Health insurance coverage better than some agencies.

    ConsThey would not cover my partner on the benefits without meeting several requirements that I have not had to meet at other companies. I don't know anything about the company values or leadership as a contractor.

    CompuCom Takes good Care of Employees

    Consulting Technical Specialist (Current Employee) Redmond, WA

    ProsBenefits and pay are generally best of market. Company has broad resources for employees. Recruiters do a good job of finding the right fit for the employee and the client both.

    ConsService level agreements are not always well defined. Reviews are informal and there is no set rate increases.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSalaries should be re-negotiated each fiscal year for long term assignments.
