I worked at Computer Merchant

Pros

the office is nice and the goings-on provide for tremendous banter amongst colleagues which harden personal relationships. some great lunch spots in the area. you can make a pretty stupid amount of money here, or could have between 1997 and 2008. everyone who did left already. the office is really impressive at first glance though. company parties are very, very drunken.

Cons

50 hours a week minimum (on salary). Hierarchy in every department determines who become the "haves" and correspondingly the "have nots." the injustice divides departments and breeds distrust. managers have to deny that such a disparity exists and their denial is painfully transparent. i'd rather die than wear a halloween costume to work ever again. Spent a lot of time recruiting for positions at companies i am quite sure had no idea who TCML was.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have the CEO retire. there are suspicions of dementia. you have 100k talent catering to the bizarre ideas of an old cranky man.

    Some rethinking needed at the Merchant - it's going off-course.

    Pros

    I.T. job diversity is very good at Computer Merchant. They usually have quite a few good job selections all across the U.S.; so if you want to work in a particualr location for awhile, they can help with that opportunity.

    Cons

    Little management action on accounts. Most people are left to fend for themselves when on location. If issues do arise, some PM's and above just skate the issues and won't intercede on the contractors behalf to help alleviate any areas of concern. Some just want you to do the job being asked with no questions involved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more proactive with all your contractors out in the field - they are your life blood and paycheck. Let them sink and you will too.
