I worked at CompuCom full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Very good documentation for migration or deployment steps, every step is documented and stored in intranet sites. Multiple copies of Peoplesoft or DBA update steps.

Cons

DBA's are scattered across the globe, both US and off shore teams can be difficult to contact when an on call issue comes up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Very good training programs for DBA's and a lot of help for On Call DBA teams.

    Great place to start as a beginner in a certain field of technology - great place to learn
    Specialists all over the world so there is always someone to help
    Collaboration across different groups in the company

    Cons

    Experience at Customer Site can be good or bad based on how good your Program Manager is - management is so-so
    Company will not pay to train you - they throw you right into the fire
    Compensation not competitive - below market rate
    Few paid holidays

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve compensation package
    Offer more training to employee

    I have been working at CompuCom full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent atmosphere, made a lot of friends here

    Cons

    Still making $17.50/hour as an L2 desktop support analyst after 5 years - it seems to be an unwritten company policy not to give raises to techs, while hiring multiple unqalified "project managers" for twice as much as they pay us due to their friendship with or relation to one of the managers here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the nepotism/cronyism. Pay your techs in line with what your competitors are paying. Stop using the economy as an excuse, big businesses are overflowing with profits these days. Don't claim you don't have money in the budget for raises every year - you would if you'd stop hiring 27 project managers at a time who don't do any work & blame us for everything that doesn't get done. A competent business would find a way to keep their employees happy.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
