Great potential if new growth is well managed

Technical Support Engineer (Current Employee)
Denver, CO

Pros-excellent training and on-boarding
-flat management structure in support services
-very collaborative environment
-excellent feedback of employee value
-strong emphasis on satisfying customers with tools provided to do so

Cons-rewards (financial, benefits, etc) for good performance have been missing for some time (possibly on the horizon)
-limited senior resources
-limited personnel resources to deal with current call volume

Advice to Senior Management-look carefully at plans to account for immediate crisis before implementing them - short-term solutions are digging into the rank and file and seem to be increasing turnover when we most need to hold on to senior resources. bring in more support engineers to account for both turnover and increasing call volume as sales grow.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
