    I have been working at Compulink Management Center full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I can't say there are rolling hills of green lawns because this is Long Beach. But it sunny bright and living near the coast is a plus. What is great about my job is the people I work with. The projects are very challenging. The deadlines are a bit tight but mostly there are just 40 hour work weeks.

    There is a lot of freedom and responsibility in the job. Everyone gets to participate in design reviews. It's a bit like working on school projects but pushed up a notch. As for my project. The coding is challenging, the project is meanful and i like how the product helps people. good for my karma.

    Cons

    My project seems a bit ambitious. We could add a bit more people but that may ruin the small group feel.

    Pros

    Freedom to interface with C-level contacts immediately. You get a baptism by fire with this company. Management in the sales departments are quality people.

    Cons

    Pay doesn't scale at the same pace as the uptick in responsibilities you take on. Free lunch is not very appetizing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the people with the right vision and drive take the reigns of the company. The management in the sales department will take the company to new heights. Not as keen on senior leadership in other areas of the business.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Long Beach, CA

    I worked at Compulink Management Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Free Lunch (If you can stomach it)
    -Great Health Benefits (Starting after 3 months "probation")
    -Some really nice people working there
    -Great place to start right out of college to gain experience for your resume

    Cons

    -Awful management
    -If you don't play the politics game you have no chance at success, which is irrelevant based on your performance
    -Silly rules like no paper cups, lunch must be taken from 12-1, etc.
    -No flexible hours, only 2 weeks of vacation per year
    -0 Employee perks or events
    -Treated like a child rather than an employee
    -No chance at advancement unless you are somehow related to the CEO of the company
    -Extremely high turnover (about 3-4 people per month quit/get fired in a company of about 200 people)
    -Compensation is quite low compared to similar job positions at similar companies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pointless to give them advice as they will never listen. Every time a consultant is hired to advise, they are fired a week later. This company is propped up by its re-sellers and their government clients renewing their licensing fees every year, it is on a downward spiral.

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Great people. The work is challenging. Lots of smart people.

    Cons

    Sometimes things move too fast. Flexible schedule but if you are a late worker, expect to be alone. You may need to bump your schedule earlier if you want to talk to coworkers.

    Pros

    Extremely easy job. A pretty good life - work balance because you will never have to work at home. You are able to travel if you would like.

    Cons

    Really high turnover rate. Low pay. Terrible commission structure that essentially is based off luck. They provide lunch everyday but it is extremely unhealthy and pretty disgusting food the majority of the time. No leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring on someone who has experience running a successful company.

    Pros

    The company is a family run company. The company gives new employees a lot of responsibility right away. Free lunches are provided by the company every day.

    Cons

    The relatives of the founder are free to berate employees during meetings for no real reason. This happens fairly regularly. There is no recourse when this happens. Management is indecisive and prone to making reactionary decisions.

    Pros

    Growth area and interesting sector, moreover the major clients are governments which are always growing

    Cons

    Competition with h1-b visa folk to keep wages low, have to fight for pay increases and once you have then you are at greater risk for termination, do have 401k match, but it seems like this is a way for the company to hide money from taxes, not many people last more than2 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support needs to report to sales always never development
