    Pros

    As a former employee, a happy one, I can honestly state that I enjoyed my many years with the organization. The opportunities to essentially manage my own business taught me many valuable lessons that I can take anywhere throughout my business career. I was never held back from a compensation standpoint and hard work does indeed pay off.

    Cons

    As I read elsewhere on this site many former employees look to bash the organization. I see this as a testament to their regrets for leaving and/or their lack of success in their current career choices.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to treat the employees fairly and you will always have a first class operation.

    Pros

    Pay, once you're part of the network you can loaf along without pulling your weight.

    Cons

    Plenty of scumbags working there. Fish rots from the head and this fish is stinky.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue.

    Converge has huge growth opportunities, but is limited by its incentive structure for traders.

    Pros

    If you're a snake and you know how to steal deals from other traders, you'll do fine at converge. There are deals and there's a lot of product to be moved.

    Cons

    Problem is getting a piece of the action. This place is like so many other sales clubs - friends of the bosses do best.

    Advice to Management

    Pull in new outside consulting help to reformat the incentive model; traders need an incentive to work together on IT asset management. Without proper incentive structures, traders will continue to bicker over a limited supply of product instead of working together to maximize the sale price for each deal.

    Pros

    It is a good company with great leadership. There are a lot of great people and the company does a lot for its employees and allows everybody to strike a great work/life balance.

    Cons

    The culture can be tough if you don't have thick skin, but as long as you aren't sensitive it is a great place to work. One problem is that the organization is sometimes reluctant to get rid of some employees who don't do much of anything merely because they've been with the company forever. Although they are slowly getting rid of some of the dead wood it would be great if they got rid of some of the other useless people.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your instincts - you know the right thing to do.
