    Pros

    Good Pay, benefits and I am non-union. Healthcare is very affordable, good matching 401k.

    Exposure to big network environments is challenging.

    Cons

    Always a crunch to provide the most for the money. Customer expectations are set very high and you are not always in the best position to fulfill them. Customer can become very frustrated and not nice to deal with.

    There are many antiquated process and systems, makes it difficult to compete tasks that should be simple. Like ordering pens, cables, or get a phone hooked up.

    Constant org changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More technical people and less paper and process pusher. Empower employee's to help customers, don't make every process require VP approval. For example, I need VP approval for a 800 dollar expense report, or to get a cell phone replace. Just too much red tape, I hope it saves money.

    Pros

    Too much of work and very expectation
    Simple rule....work work work and work
    above that they dont appreciate the work u do

    Cons

    Avoid unless you dont have a third option
    high deliver pressure for atleast the contractors, as company has there view because they are paying.
    no work life balance
    working on the weekend without over pay is normal
    Every month u see faces changing there....very unstable company to be in
    Find better option where they value u r work
