I worked at Gateway full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

great people to work with, good hours and pay. lots of opportunity to learn and grow your career. have to move out to move up though.

Cons

bad management desicions drove company into the ground. when i first started working there we would fix anything (help desk suuport for end users) ... by the time i left customers had to pay for everything even though they paid upfront for premium support

Advice to Management

go back to the companies roots if you want to survive

    I worked at Gateway full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Before it was purchased by Acer, Gateway held firm to a belief that its employees were the reason the company was great, and so they treated everyone very well. However, that was too good to last. During the transition to Acer, a lot of jobs were lost, the once great cow-spotted building now stands empty aside from some new tenants who rent parts of the building for other endeavors.

    Cons

    Layoffs, in the end. You never knew when the axe would fall. Management was overly concerned with quality, and unfortunately that drove price up and consumers weren't willing to pay for it.

    Advice to Management

    None of the management I worked under is there any longer...
