Service First - or Department of Miscellaneous

Database Administrator (Former Employee)

I worked at Department of Commerce as a contractor for less than a year

Pros- wide variety of work servicing departments too small to have their own IT area
- direct contact with end users
- some in-house computer based training
- my recommendations for improvements were always listened to and mostly implemented

Cons- 3 rounds of staff cutbacks during an 8 month contract
- no chance to go permanent
- many staff were overworked
- many of the systems were poorly documented, (but thats also a chance for improvement)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
