    I worked at Comtec Europe full-time

    Pros

    Location is good
    Free fruit
    Good people
    Senior team is starting to show a real drive and commitment to developing a world class product
    Big market presence
    Well established
    Solid process and governance, which sets it apart from some other companies in the same industry
    Social Events

    Cons

    Based over two floors, and the office, in some parts looks a bit drab - however it depends on what you are used to, and all the kit is functional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One floor, new carpet, establish solid marketing strategy

    I have been working at Comtec Europe full-time

    Pros

    healthy balance of coworkers, free parking, fruit, some work can be fun, casual dress, square location is good

    Cons

    company direction follow a broken compass. hypocritically claim to be less reactive, yet this has brought us to where we are. lack of internal listening, need new kit, office needs a new can of paint, open an office, close an office, open an office close an office, but no warning for those affected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    there was a reason an interim CEO was brought in. all he has done was for naught. company unraveling at the seams, your best talent is leaving, or you are pitting us against our friends. SMT needs to be revamped and brought up to speed with the difficulties of the business. everyone is brawling with ideas, but none are listening. might not be a final solution.

    I have been working at Comtec Europe

    Pros

    Pay market rate, casual dress, free parking

    Cons

    3 different CEOs in 18 months, each one un-doing what went before and throwing staff into an ever increasing downward spiral of confusion. Almost yearly redundency runs (usually just before Christmas) significantly in 2008, 2010, 2011 sometimes involving up to 10% of staff going. Long hours working culture. Directors constantly changing (entire board replaced between mid 2010 and end 2011). In all, directionless, confused and poorly equipped to meet market challenges, a very frustrating place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Devise a market-driven customer-responsive strategy and stick to it!
