    Pros

    Core BTS has a good portfolio to offer its clients, has talented engineering staff and for the most part, dedicated employees that want to see the company succeed. Work/life balance can be good if you take control of it. High Partner levels with EMC, Cisco, VMware, Microsoft and Citrix. Majority of staff are willing to help fellow teammates succeed and ensure customer satisfaction.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the culture and Executive Leadership don't deliver the requirements needed to be successful in a competitive market that requires customer attention/loyalty, strong management vision from the top and a solid basis of business professionalism to create and maintain a good reputation in the market and with its employees. No corporate vision and lack of accountability hampers the organization to grow and be the VAR it could be.

    Advice to Management

    VGPA. Need a Vision, need to document the Goals to support the vision, need to develop a Plan to achieve those goals, need to put all into Action. Review all levels of management and determine if the best/most talented people are in the roles to move the company forward. Look beyond the spreadsheet in making business decisions

  3. Management has no clue

    Pros

    Decent benefits, OK pay compared to peers. Some of the people are really good. Work-life balance is good and office hours are often flexible depending on your work schedule.

    Cons

    There is no culture here. The company is just looking to sell so cheapness is the way of life. Unfortunate that some of the really talented are coaxed into staying on with a dead horse.

    Advice to Management

    Please sell the company already and spare the employees from anymore knee-jerk decisions. They deserve better than you.

    Pros

    A very fast pace atmosphere, where you can thrive if you are not afraid to put in an honest day's work. The company made significant investments in sales training and in bringing quality people to the org. You have to WORK here and if you are hoping to sit in your pajamas all day on a WEBEX or fly around with no responsibilities and not produce anything but expense bills, then you aren't long for this company. If you want to be part of something and you are willing to do the work, then this is the place!

    Cons

    The challenges here are always resources, we are rapidly growing and will always stretch our resources. We don't cater to "prima donnas" and we don't bring in "hired guns" so our hiring process takes longer than most.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on development of your existing people! Continue to look for acquisitions with like-minded hard working technology firms, STAY THE COURSE and make the investments.

    Pros

    Lots of locations and strong Cisco partnership...lots of technology in the labs.

    Cons

    Management has absolutely no knowledge of what it takes to run a VAR post 2001...this is an unsustainable business model.

    Advice to Management

    Cut your overhead and get focused on the 2-3 things you do well.
