    Overall company is great, but Technical Support you get no training, no help and they work you like a dog.

    Pros

    Benefits like insurance and PTO are good. I was lucky to get a good work shift 7 - 4.

    Cons

    Thrown in to the job, no training, no help when you are on the phone with customer. Was told 30 cases a week was satisfactory then they expect 40 then 50...management never satisfied. No matter how many calls you take, while some are not doing as much. Support is not where you want to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even though you will be told in the interview you will get training, don't trust them. Since a few are leaving, Management might be getting the hint, but no training once past the initial phase will happen...no kidding.

    Pros

    Very good geek culture, and lots of great people to work with. This company will go places. Lots of opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    Very top-heavy management, and a lot of the rank and file don't think too highly of some of the VP and SVP's. When you get there, find a protector. The marketing dept experienced almost a complete turnover in 2011, this coupled with the growing pains is going to make 2012 a bumpy year, I think. They are trying to expand beyond their traditional products via acquisitions and new types of products. There will be more shakeups before they're on steady ground again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to quit the politics and power struggles, it's not doing anyone any good. Be a leader, set an example.
