I worked at Think Tank NTG

Pros

-there is a strong commitment to training. ( if there is a certification that can be justified, you can probably take a class or get training materials).
-the staff are very friendly and plan after work events from time to time.
-there are some engineers that are very skilled in specific areas.
-lots of opportunities to grow your skills
-for a small company there were more opportunities to work with higher end equipment than I would have expected.

Cons

-There isn't a focus on responsibility or ownership of tasks.
-All company interviews sound good, but nobody takes them seriously.
-with engineers, there seemed to be more of a focus on certifications than talent.
-with sales, it seemed that there pay rate was set far too low to get anyone who was good. Of the ones that were good, they did not stick around long.
-mileage reimbursement had a cut off that did not make sense when some clients were halfway across the state and a single trip would get you about half way to the cut off.
-pay is low in comparison to similar positions elsewhere.
-the company focuses primarily on a niche market (novell/suse)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think Tank NTG is a good company to work for. The pay rate is just very low in comparison to similar positions in the IT industry.

    I have been working at Think Tank NTG full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Strong ethics, family friendly company. Make as much as you can sell. No ceiling compensation plan. You have to sell but 100K is very doable if you are any good at sales. Up to 3 weeks paid vacation and a 401K with match plan. Health care and special summer hours program.

    Cons

    Can be stressful when switching industries to technology field.
    Eat what you kill is for b2b pro's. This is not a cut your teeth in sales job.
