    I have been working at Emtec full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Emtec offers an incredible amount of growth opportunity and range of freedoms to expand your role and your knowledge as far as you desire to and are capable of. It is a company for self-motivated folks who have a real passion for what they do. There is minimal handholding and micromanaging, rather, they provide freedom to work a flexible schedule with results-oriented measurements of success.

    Cons

    There is a learning curve to operations that newcomers sometimes find to be a bit steep.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall great job, the environment and company philosophies are progressive and well-received. I would suggest considering updated benefits or policies that help retain our top quality folks.

    Pros

    Good company. Good culture. Payment also good.
    Good legal team.

    Cons

    Don't go to long term Because at any time they will sell. After 15 days they sent a mail you are under another employer. They are REAL BODY (person) SHOPPERS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take care to employee at shopping time.(buy, sell)

    I worked at Emtec full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked here as part of enterprise professional services team, doing pre-sales, building equipments for customer orders and IT professional services to multimillion dollar companies . Relax environment, good partnership with equipment manufacturers/vendors, provides regular training so the techs are always up to date with their certifications, learned a lot. Reasonable feeling of job security (this was during my tenure - before it got bought by westwood).

    Cons

    My manager would mostly go in a disappearing act, without us knowing where he is, I rarely talk to him, he rarely talk to his people. He even transferred me to another department without even telling me a word. So, then I quit... that's when I know he still exist since he wanted to talk to me.

    Westwood took over around 2006, a company that only specializes in IT equipment wholesale, (no retail background), doesn't know anything about professional services. The equipment sales continued, professional services and consulting started to collapsed.

    Limited incentive. No regular performance review. Even if you excel, you won't get rewarded or only few would notice, and won't care. That means, you need to really ask for something to get rewarded or compensated.

    Company is ok, nothing extraordinary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show care about your employees. Build a career path to them so they will stay.

    Pros

    Nice Management and they try hard to please employees. Overall an average experience. They do try, just lack personal touch employees today demand

    Cons

    Benefits, lack of direction in any of the business units. Makes decisions with little thought of employees. Do not invest in employee growth.

    I have been working at Emtec as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    realizing never to work for a place like that again! There really isn't anything at all good to say about this firm/farm.

    Cons

    Culture discriminatory practices.
    Don't care about anyone other than their own pockets
    Don't trust anything they "promise", not even in their agreements
    Don't dish out a dime in covering your travel expenses - you'll go broke before they reimburse you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of ALL the "leaders"

    I have been working at Emtec full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Extremely flexible, decent benefits, been with the company a short time and already advancing up. I could see myself with this company for quite some time.

    Cons

    At this point in time I cannot say anything bad. I have been with the company for a short period of time and have already seen a much better work environment than my previous employment.

    Do background checks and be loyal.
