Learning Opportunity for someone out of College

Help Desk Analyst (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Eze Castle Integration full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat company and atmosphere. Everyone is technically ambitious, friendly and practical. They take management and clients very seriously (and they should). But you can expect to get your hands wet in a variety of technologies and grow rapidly. They promote from within, so a good place to stay.

ConsPay is not up to the market level - Sys Eng 75-80k. Help Desk - 45-55k.

Advice to Senior Managementlet your employees voice themselves without hesitation - otherwise you guys are doing a fantastic job.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Engineer (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Eze Castle Integration full-time for more than 3 years

Team structure is working really well.
Excellent training program! I've been able to get my Cisco certs as well as Netapp certs via Eze.

ConsDifficult clients with no patience...

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it going, the past few years have been a lot of fun for me and I appreciate the opportunities of growth and ability to get promoted by working hard!

Great place to start your IT Career

Engineer (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Eze Castle Integration full-time for more than a year

ProsYou will learn how to implement technology effectively. Departments are cohesive with a young atmosphere. You will rack-up on overtime as a low-level technician.

ConsThe organization is set in it's way and managers (in mid 40's around since beginning) doesn't want your opinion. Organization has growing pains with frequent growth spurts and layoff cycles.

Advice to Senior ManagementYour home-grown talent is great at implementing technology. However they cant help improve inefficiencies. Let your great talent have some input into operations. Work on operations as much as you do on your PR.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great learning and career growth

Help Desk Analyst (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Eze Castle Integration full-time for more than a year

ProsI started at Eze on their Help Desk program and have been very fortunate to get 2 promotions in the past 13 months. They have a great Learning and Development program and if you hit certain criteria you get a promotion to the next level on the helpdesk. It's been an awesome reward for working hard.

ConsThe clients! The company services primarily hedge funds, most of the clients are extremely demanding and have no patience to work with you on the phone....

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up!!! The game nights and beer Thursday's are awesome perks!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Has been cutting back in Benefits

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Eze Castle Integration

ProsYou can advance rapidly, but noti necessarlity in compensation

ConsCompany used to have an excellent medical plan and 401k. But in 2013 the medical was cut back to a below average plan as compared to company peers. The 401k has been cut back every year for the past 3 years.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive the emplyees some visibility into how deep the benefits will be cut. Quite a ew coworkers are now lookign at other positions.

ConsLack of team cohesiveness for such a small group
Not much room for growth with the small team size.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Upbeat and great

Systems Engineer (Field) (Former Employee)

ProsDemo lab to help learn new technology and concepts, various client sizes, different solution per client, Eze Wiki really does help with their standards if you're just starting out

ConsPay is a little low compared to others, not as much travel as you would like

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up, keep the company growing and the employee culture alive!
