    I have been working at Getronics as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Loved working to the Biotech company, really worked hard at being leading/bleeding edge of the technology. The people I was supporting was also enjoyable

    Cons

    Management was not supportive of training or providing timely reviews, It took me 3 years and much begging to get review that was unfair and when I challenged it, the management at the time, changed the value/rating that I was effectively rejecting, but lowered another Value on the same review so I would not be eligible for a bigger raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your staff that are working for you with respect, and provide paths for them to grow. they represent the company.

    Pros

    Local personnel and management were great to work with and values their employees.
    Okay benefits and excellent training opportunities internal and external.

    Cons

    Upper management didn't care about growing the operations just cut, cut, cut.
    They also made sales renew contacts at any cost just to keep the business.

    I worked at Getronics

    Pros

    At one time they were a worldwide IT consulting and services powerhouse.

    Cons

    Poor management practices led company to sell off its american division. Probably a good thing for the american employees of Getronics - those that did not get laid off that is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in employee compensation and retention programs.

    Pros

    Good place to start. They give you a solid foundation to learn from.

    Cons

    Not very many growth opportunities. Pay is low range for the job that is done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement raises after a review and make sure you are paying at least mid range for each position.

    Getronics/CompuCom pays minimal amount for out of scope duties, no opportunities for professional/career growth.

    Pros

    Benefits are the only thing that is good to look forward too.

    Cons

    No pay increase or compenstation for increased job duties and tasks. No proper training for these increased job duties. No performace reviews are conducted by management. Management all works mostly remotely and have limited face to face interaction with employees. No opportunity for professional or career growth with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give proper training for tasks that are given to employees especially when they expect only the highest level of support. Not only do the employees need the appropiate training for these duties, management should at least evaluate employees performance and provide compensation for increased job rolls.

    Pros

    The company does alow managers to be somewhat flexible interms of working hours and working from home to compleate projects and tasks.

    Cons

    No visonary Leadership in the company as evidenced by the constant downsizing and shift in buisness priorities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think it has been given as they have been sold off to another company and as a result the north american buisness was sold to a competetator.

    Getronics - A Bad Place To Begin An IT Career

    Former Employee - Network Analyst I in Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Network Analyst I in Houston, TX

    I worked at Getronics

    Pros

    Getronics can be an incredible opportunity to break into Information Technology at ALL levels. Access to a wealth of technology and educational opportunities. The company is an established figure in the IT Outsource community.

    Cons

    Advancement structure was poor at best - work output and personal/professional development rarely a factor in receiving advancement opportunities. Management interaction with employess was generally demoralizing. Very little disregard for employees' families, especially in times of loss of loved ones or tragedies. Essentially employees were treated like a face in the crowd. Payscales not competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to employees that are offering solutions to problems. "Promote from within" should be a practice and not a idea. Competitive salaries will drive your employees. For a company whose product is to provide IT solutions to customers worldwide, it should be clear that communication within the company should be open and Senior Management should be "In Touch" with it's most valuable asset - it's employees. Without the right employees, you do not have the right solutions to offer customers. Based on the experience I had within Getronics, I could never recommend them as a good choice for employment or as a solution to prospective customer.

    Pros

    Loads of possibilities
    Accessible higher management

    Cons

    Growing in the company is slow because of endless rules and limitations.
    This made me decide to leave the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If other people tell you to let somebody promote, have it done!
