Pros

Large variety of projects, software, and hardware to work on at a variety of clients. Backups and Disaster Recovery are taken very seriously. Monday status meetings are a great place for information-sharing and employee recognition. "Client Liason" is an *invaluable* asset to the employees, management, and company as a whole. Can work from home sometimes, if you play your cards right (and are not a dummy.) If you make it through the extensive interview & background vetting--be proud--not everyone makes it!

Cons

Nauseatingly-detailed "timesheets" are required for any and all billable hours. Extensive minutia must be manually configured on workstations and servers--even though it should be deployed via Group Policy (but few of the employees & managers know how.) Work/Personal balance is touted, but long hours are required (which can be compounded by commuting from the customer's office.) Some managers are quite closed to new (i.e., your,) ideas for improvement.

Advice to Management

Check in with glassdoor every now and then, read the comments, and address some of the concerns at manager, employee, or company meetings.

    Pros

    You get a paycheck. Other than that... hmm.... can't really think of any other benefits. Nope, no other benefits.

    Cons

    Micromanagement. Micromanagement. Micromanagement. They pretty much treat all their employees with exception of the long-term ones like little kids. If you last a year in these conditions you're probably chuck norris...

    Advice to Management

    Don't crush creativity. If you want the same result 100% of the time, configure a machine to do it.

    Do what you say you are going to do. Communicate with the employees. Provide outside training other than just having the Engineers learn while working on the client's infrastructure.
