Pros

Lots of opportunity for advancement, company prefers to promote from within. HR is a class act - everything there is run like clockwork, with lots of detail with regards to benefits, etc... 401K matches @ 4%, immediate vesting. Short and long term disability fully paid by company, as is $50K in life insurance. Even medical HMO is fully paid for employee only. Company has annual holiday party, annual picnic, regular staff briefings, and free lunch every month!

Cons

Medical for family coverage is quite expensive. No cost of living raises. No bonuses. Annual performance raises are paltry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Well run company!

    A job with great pay but loaded with people that don't know how to manage.

    Pros

    The pay and unlike most IT jobs, you work one steady shift. The company has great benefits for now.

    Cons

    Poor management and you don't get paid OT for extra time you spend on special projects. In addition, you never get compensated when you take on a responsibility outside of your job description.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Weed out the management in one of their locations and find someone more suited for the job. The manager is related to one of her employees and they are too cliquey. The manager also has no backbone and will not stand up and fight for things she knows is right.

    Pros

    The top reason to work for ITSolutions is the growth and career development opportunity. Management is willing to take some risk and give opportunity to employees who may not have all the requisite experience for a task or project. This risk gives employees an opportunity to grow and learn new skills without having to change companies. ITSolutions also offers a "community feel" with numerous employer sponsored events (annual picnic, local sports leagues, informal training/learning sessions). Additionally, the top-level senior management team talks to employees and congratulates them on their successes, both in and out of work. This shows middle and upper level managers are noticing and communicating the success of their team "up the ladder."

    Cons

    ITSolutions is still a small organization; however, not small enough to be considered a Small Business. They face challenged due to their size and competition from other companies in the same field. While communication frequently moves "up the ladder," it is inconsistent "down the ladder." The company newsletter and other status emails are infrequent and often paint an incomplete picture of current activities. The bonus system is not used uniformly across the company, so some teams are rewarded more than others based on their manager and visibility. Great strides have been made with the employee intranet; however, the documentation is sparce and frequently out of date.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication coming down the ladder, add benefits that matter to employees (transportation benefits), improve the bonus program by educating managers and encouraging managers to submit recommendations.
