    I worked at Computer Design and Integration full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    very family oriented, one of the best places I have ever worked. great salary. Great owners, in fact they take the company on a paid holiday to the tropics every year!

    Cons

    I really don't have anything bad to say. I had to move away due to family reasons or I would have stayed

    Pros

    Big high dollar Cisco sales focus. Big money and opportunity for sales reps. Little trickle down to service engineers. Fancy annual company trip. Very high quality and smart technical experts.

    Cons

    Weak management. Deceptive sales. Lots of over promise/under deliver.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on quality of service instead of scams and manipulated statistics.

    I have been working at Computer Design and Integration full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good teamwork with local coworkers, excellent pay, ability to work from home whenever needed.

    Cons

    - Poor medical benefits
    - Little to no communication outside main location
    - Management lacks focus and direction and has no idea who reports to them
    - Dispatch schedules onsite support with the client without putting it on the dispatch calendar then blames the field engineer when the client gets upset
    - Certifications and degrees required to keep jobs but no financial aid from CDI; employees unable to afford the education are let go
    - Management keeps changing job descriptions and company procedures without documenting them then punish the employee

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to start communicating with employees at all CDI locations. Right now they favor those at their main location and leave everyone else in the dark. They also need to stop treating dispatch and field engineers like slaves. These two departments are the backbone of the company's mission, and the blame game that management is currently playing is creating a hostile work environment and ruining the company's image. Get your act together and start leading properly before you destroy what could be a great company.

    My experience at CDI was great, because the company has an excellent training program and a great company culture.

    Pros

    CDI did not micro manage its sale associates. Management was always willing to teach and give advice whenever needed. The bonus and commission structure was very rewarding.

    Cons

    The Cons were few if any. Sometimes the new outside sales reps were not as organized as they should have been.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management would be to have more meetings with sales staff throughout the month.

    I have been working at Computer Design and Integration full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - Opportunity to stay current with emerging technology
    - Great group of people to work with.
    - Growing company, growing opportunities
    - Hard Work is rewarded

    Cons

    - Health Benefits not the greatest, but OK
    - With growth comes pain. If your willing to deal with it (then its not a con), if it gets exhausting most tend to leave and find their happy place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Share a bit more of the future plan and career pathes
    - Most rather have them know the brutal truth, then be shielded from it or deflected from it

    Great place to build a career, not just a job

    Pros

    Advancement encouraged, hard work rewarded, GREAT balance between work and family, compensation is better than the competition, and a very talented technical staff

    Cons

    Information from the "top" is limited as it's a privately owned company, continued success & growth has created the need for new talent which hasn't been filled quickly enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I appreciate the opportunities that have always been presented to me at CDI LLC. Management really creates the feeling that we're all part of their family and rewards those who go the extra mile.

    I worked at Computer Design and Integration

    Pros

    Technology is top notch
    Peers are great to work with
    Middle management really goes out of their way
    Some of the best clients I ever worked with
    Always a chance to learn something new.

    Cons

    No upper management involvement
    Double standards
    Do as I say, not as I do attitude
    No care for their employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't think the left hand knows what the right hand is doing here. With the purchase of managed services, there is not enough heart about all the employees. You need to care about everyone, not just your original ones.
