    I have been working at World Wide Technology

    Pros

    Great people and culture.
    Strong work life/home life balance
    Opportunities for personal growth based on success of the company
    Great Benefits Package, health, dental and life

    Cons

    Focus on growth can mean decisions and strategy are very fluid. I have seen where individuals more accustomed to a traditional corporate structure struggle due to fluidity and evolving processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue leading by example and allowing the leadership underneath you to innovate. Focus on growing leaders internally, while recruiting leaders/talent from the market.

    Pros

    Competitive Benefits at low employee cost
    Lots of training and time given for it.
    Reasonable billable utilization goals
    Excellent Telecommute Policy-mobile workforce
    People know your name. Good medium sized company
    Good travel policy (per diem, book your own flights etc)
    Some choice in smart phone selection (ie. iPhone)
    Work hard, play hard culture, your manager can buy you lunch or have happy hours.
    Opportunities to work on basically everything that Cisco sells and lots of other vendors as well.
    People are nice and will go the extra mile if you are in a jam.
    Culture of customer satisfaction above all.

    Cons

    Tendency to overwork people, particularly frequent travelers or those working for major clients.
    Frequent reorganizations
    Mobile employees are sometimes left out when it comes to big events and can lack necessary face time with management to advance careers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find more ways to keep mobile employees engaged. Develop reasonable limits for frequent travelers and mobile workers to keep from burning out. Settle on a corporate structure. Make reviews twice a year instead of once.
