    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Monroeville, PA

    I worked at Compunetix full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opprotunity to work with different software groups and learn new skills. Usually free to work on whatever projects are most interesting within your group. If you take advantage of this opportunity, you can learn a lot and get a wide variety of experience.

    Cons

    Information not easily shared between departments. Hardware, software and test group typically operate as distinct units with minimal interaction. This often makes troubleshooting a frustrating experience, and encourages narrow domain knowledge.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Monroeville, PA

    I worked at Compunetix full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    If you want a stable job without innovation and want to be doing the same thing over and over everyday working on very old technology, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Ideas come from top down and cannot be modified. Get rid of IBM Clearcase and Clearquest, what is wrong with you. Waterfall methodology practiced here ONLY. Compensation and Benefits are lame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in top executives from different companies so they can introduce new ideas, concepts, and processes. Practice agile and do not be afraid of change. Listen to your team not just each other.

    I have been working at Compunetix full-time

    Pros

    Good people that genuinely care about their work and co-workers, flexible scheduling, decent benefits (but slowly being chipped away). Overtime is minimum.

    Cons

    Management stuck in the past. No real plan for the future, goes from crisis to crisis. Little to no interest in employee development or career goals, nowhere to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace management, listen to what people in the field and customers are saying.

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

    Pros

    Flexible time off. Free coffee. Ability to sell back extra paid time off hours.

    Cons

    No career progression. No future plan to bring back customers lost. No 401k???? Layoffs frequently. Facility is old and falling apart. No communication. No training. No respect as a human being. You will be treated poorly everyday your employment continues. This is not a company for long term growth. Lazy upper management. Customers are pulling out frequently and finding cost effective and professional solutions elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enroll in management training courses. Ask yourselves one question daily "Why are my employees so miserable? "
