    Pros

    Personal Growth is in the culture. Lots of opportunity to go places. specialization occurs in segments. Good technology

    Cons

    Not a 9 to 5 job, working globally has it challenges, moving from one segment to another is not as easy as it should be, there are some silo's and the company has some duplicate of roles

    Pros

    Pretty decent hours. Communication pretty good no matter what level you are on. I feel like the pay is good for the work that we do. Great job if you love helping people and meeting new people everyday.

    Cons

    Dealing with difficult people. Having to meet expectations based on numbers. If the store is short, no need to look for any help because you won't get it. NO OVERTIME!!!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just look at the numbers and use that on how the store is doing. Make a visit every now and then so you can see the things we have to deal with on the daily basis and then you will know why we say and do some of the things that we do.

    Good opportunities, but most of the people work individually. They don't know how to work as a team.

    Pros

    Diverse and interesting. Job involved a lot of travel to neat places. Must have great intercommunication skills. Interacted with great people from around the world.

    Cons

    Can get laid off at any time. I never saw it coming. They had to make room for another higher level director. So even though you add a lot of value and do a great job you can get laid off at any time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should not lay off experienced employees. A lot of knowledge leaves the company.

    Pros

    I worked in a department that was very proactive and my fellow techs helped each other. Pay was good and benefits are adequate. Every day challenged your skills and knowledge. Never a dull moment.

    Cons

    Continuing R.I.F initiative to reduce budgets. Little chance for upward mobility.
