    Pros

    It's good IT experience until you find something better. Some projects or groups are better to work on than others. If you get hired, I hear the benefits are decent, but the pay is low.

    Cons

    They have gotten a ton of new corporate IT support contracts because they under bid other companies. The work load is not more with less, it's more with a lot less. They're an IT contractor that uses a lot of sub contractors.


  2. Good company with relaxed work environment

    Pros

    I enjoyed the people I worked with. The new technology.

    Cons

    Management needs to understand that everyone is different. Some people need supervision, some don't. They need to read their people. Stop micromanaging. Support your people. Don't throw them under the bus to make the client happy. I cannot tell you how many times I took the fall for client mistakes. Because my manager did not back me up.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging. Support your people.
