I have been working at CompuCom full-time (more than an year)

Pros

For any entry level engineer it's a great place to grind out some certifications. They pay for your first 2 attempts on any exam, meaning you can fail your first attempt at the CCNA and not be angry you're out $250 for the failure.

Get in, grind certs, get out is the best way to work at this company.

Cons

There really are quite a few. ZERO cost of living increases in pay for 4 years. (remember the recession was supposed to have ended in 2009? Not according to Compucom) The company had bonus' for management this year, but not a single dollar to normal employees. For a group of 50 they allotted $400 for our Christmas party. A seriously cheap company.

They only give you the holidays off on their schedule, not the company you contract at. So if your company takes off banking holidays, you get stuck taking PTO because they won't let you work that day.

They have the worst coverage of any heath care package I've seen. Dental has a max payout of $800 a year?!?! Better hope you never need to get so much as a single crown or more than 1/2 will come out of your pocket. Their health coverage in MN is pretty terrible too. ($315 per month for a family of 4, both adults in good health under the age of 35)

When getting hired get the opportunity to move up in writing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For being an IT company, it sure seems like you don't understand how important employee retention is. More than 50% of my team has turned over in 2 years, almost entirely because the rates being paid are well under industry standards. All that remains after that kind of employee churn are the people who aren't qualified enough to get a job elsewhere.

    Pros

    My resource manager on the compucom side was great, but a little passive, done close to nothing to make sure my contract gets extended. pay rate was good

    Cons

    fishy recruiting tactics - i was lied to my face about the contract duration

    I have been working at CompuCom full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I love my local team, I love my local manager. I love the company I'm assigned as a conractor.

    Cons

    You would think that after the 7, 8, 9 and 10 years with a company not given a single raise you would at least think they would have the courtesy to give a cost of living increase. This company and most other companies have such an upper hand over employees now. What comes around, goes around and I sure hope they recognize when Karma comes knocking on the “screw you door”.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to recognize Karma because she can be ugly at times when you treat people with no respect of their abilities to provide for their familes because the price of goods and services keep going up and not getting any help with any cost of living increases.
