    I worked at Black Box

    Pros

    Competitive environment, fair management, and having the ability to keep up with the competition leads to a good place to work. Opportunities for advancement may increase once the economy rebounds and more companies increase CAPEX and OPEX for IT and Telephony equipment.

    Cons

    In the current landscape, there may not be too many opportunities to advance your career because of the business space that Black Box is in...the Telecom/IT industry has taken a big hit, but it is now starting to come around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You must keep in mind that this company is built around great people and that the mission to reduce cost is not always realized by cutting head count. It may be the easiest and quickest way, but not the best way...

    I worked at Black Box

    Pros

    Support for professional development. Cooperative branch offices that enable nationwide and international customer support. Financial capability to fund any profitable project.

    Cons

    For all of the talk about collaboration and resources available from Regional and HQ, requests for help often go unanswered. No one has seen a raise in five years. A recent pro-union vote has institutionalised a long standing breakdown between installers/technicians and management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We had a good long run, most of which was great fun. I wish you all the best in these difficult times.
