Good company, but a lot of travel

Prefer Not to Say (Former Employee)
Las Vegas, NV

ProsMost of the employees that have been there 5+ years will help you out and are generally good people to work with. If you are single and don't mind traveling up to 6 weeks at a time, you get to see some amazing places, both in the U.S. and internationally. You can take advantage of whatever time off you have to explore the cities and immerse yourself in local culture.

ConsRequires more commitment to the company than some may be willing to give. As stated in the title, there is a LOT of travel for certain positions (installation/training/gaming shows), so be prepared to optimize your time when you are home. If you are in a relationship, it will take a very committed partner to understand this is your job. There is a certain amount of gossiping as well ranging from hopeful ("everyone could get bonuses") to negative ("we heard they're outsourcing everything to India").

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a break once in a while and hang out with the team. With a company this size, you are always going to have negative employees, but they are the exception, not the norm. You'd be surprised what you will learn and could boost morale in the office and the road.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
