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

    Pros

    Decent pay. No micromanaging whatsoever. All the certifications you could ever want are paid for by the company. It seems they pay you all the certifications abs training you could ever want or need to thrive in the IT industry. Mileage pay is pretty decent. Not the best, but decent. Both my manager and my team lead are really cool funny guys that really show us that we as techs are appreciated.

    Cons

    Huge communication breakdown at times. Hard to find the right answers. Sometimes asking a question either gets you a vague one word answer or no answer at all.

    Not always guaranteed work for the day, though they promise 40 hours a week.

    Time keeping system sucks in a huge way.

    There are some idiots working for this company, both as management and as techs. Seriously, I'm not sure who hired these people, but they make the company look bad when five different techs work on a single ticket, only to have the sixth tech clean up the messes and actually fix the issue.

    They will literally hire anyone who can just about spell computer, regardless of skill. (Pro for some)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make information easier to find.

    Give bonuses based on performance, get rid of the idiots.

    Meet with your techs more often. Maybe once a month round table meetings over lunch or some central location where we can all get to know each other and share ideas.

    Wish I could have been moved to another contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a backup plan for all the new techs incase you lose the contract.
