I have been working at Emtec full-time

Pros

Work/life balance has been great so far. Even when the pace picks up during projects, there is flexibility in how your work is completed, as long as its timely and high quality. Outstanding co-workers. Training has gotten better compared to the past (from what I hear): my training consisted of meeting with members of the management team and senior consultants, along with self-study tools.

Cons

A merger/acquisition was wrapping up when I started, and Emtec has had mutliple MA's in the past couple years. The effect is that sometimes the company doesn't seem fully unified, but management has gotten better about projecting a cohesive vision and strategy. The MA's have also caused turnover, but the dust is starting to settle.

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

    Pros

    very flexible, work laptop, work phone.
    the choice of working from home or from the office, bosses are laid back you are left to do what ever you want with your time during bench time.

    Cons

    low pay, company is segregated, benefits are a joke. No training, No opportunities for career advancement, work becomes a routine like a corporate job where you do the same thing every project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to consultant's feed back, look for areas to grow the practices to offer new services.

    I worked at Emtec full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    At the time I worked there, it was called Westwood Computer Corporation. Left in 2002. Good salary, work was enjoyable.

    Cons

    Little money for training of IT staff, no company car available, no clear instructions on how to do things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Organize and have a plans and procedures for working with clients. Various IT staff would just go into a site and start installing hardware without a clearly defined plan if things didn't work right (such as telecom or wiring company not showing up and completing pre-installation work when promised).
