    It was a great experience being able to do what I love to do as well as learn a new thing or two.

    Pros

    The company does a great job finding work you are experienced doing along with being flexible with you learning a new task and since they are pretty much a temp agency, they will put you with most likely a Fortune 500 company so you might get your foot in the door of a great company.

    Cons

    Don't seem to have enough work and their pay period is every two weeks so when you first start it might be three weeks before you get paid and that makes it tough on the employee, especially when you are worried if you got enough gas money to get you there and back everyday until you do get paid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try expanding in to more than just IT work that doesn't involve sitting in a cubicle 8 hours a day. I mean that's ok for most IT people but I like doing more like actually pulling, terminating, testing, labeling, and dressing cables. Those kind if days fly by and I feel better about myself at the end of the day and don't have so much energy that I can't get to sleep at a decent time.

    I have been working at Pomeroy IT

    Pros

    Pomeroy has been on a positive upswing from an employee satisfaction standpoint for the last couple of years.
    They have invested heavily in employee training, and employee engagement is up. The management wants the employees to feel like they have a say in the direction the company is going in. I had a pleasant experience, and would recommend Pomeroy.

    Cons

    The challenges at Pomeroy are the same as any large employer. There are chances for advancement, but depending on the area you are in that may be difficult. Pomeroy is also an IT staffing firm, so there are some limitations on what they can offer employees- which in turn creates negative reviews.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to employees, and create a more positive environment in sales

    I worked at Pomeroy IT

    Pros

    I was on the job within a week of applying for the position. Other than that, the company didn't seem to care too much about keeping me working.

    Cons

    The position was grossly misleading. Severely underpaid for what I actually ended up doing on the job. I was lied to about my contract being extended, then left unemployed with 5 days notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to contracts with employers in your local area. I was dealing with people whom I'd never met and who had never met the key players at the company I was contracted to work for.

    I have been working at Pomeroy IT full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employees are smart, experience and friendly.

    Cons

    Lack of training, under use of talent and no encouragement of full potential. Managers are detached and afraid to implement change or stream line processes. Inner department conflict food chain hierarchy issues. Benefits are poor; pay not great but not bad. The company has great potential, but fails to make effective change. If you are looking for career with personal satisfaction sense of achievement, do not apply. If you are looking job as stepping stone, this will work for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use your optimization group to streamline your company processes, the people there are smart and have ambition. Help them to help you.

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

    Pros

    They offer decent medical, vision, and dental. They also offer discounts on their online retail store. The two managers I had were decent, and I liked them a lot. I would happily work with them again.

    Cons

    The company itself is sporadic and the decisions made are questionable. I've watched them time and time again knowingly and unknowingly breach or try and get around contracts in a sneaky way. My experience is that they'll run over customer or employee for a miniscule amount of money. Promises also also rarely kept. The HR department at the time of my employment was also sketchy. It puts Managers in a very awkward position. Hopefully I just had a bad experience and the business isn't run in the fashion I witnessed but the folks I know who still work there continue to have ongoing issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of trying to promote "Pomeroy is the place to be" MAKE it the place to be. If your employees can't trust you, you'll never gain the goals you seek. Example: I was very disappointed to learn that the department I was in needed to loose a headcount. That happens, and that's life. I'm fine with that. What I'm not fine with is you telling me on a Wednesday evening, right before my vacation trip on Thursday and Friday that I will no longer get said paid vacation, and that my HSA account has been turned off as of "today" so I won't be able to use it for my doctor appointment I had planed, the week after vacation. (about $1,700 I had saved out of my paycheck for my use that they "absorbed" back into the pool) If you take anything away from this review; Please, PLEASE. Don't leave your employees high and dry. Be decent and be responsible. You have peoples lives in your hands.

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

    Pros

    Good company values and comparable benefits available to the employees of the company. The 401k benefits and HSA are handy to have.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for advancement, other than being encouraged to move to other contracts, so the management of the contract you're currently on can replace you with someone making less money and, therefore, make themselves look like they are being more profitable than they really are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer parental leave for both mothers and fathers, when a child is born. that is unfair to anyone who has a child with special care needs and can't afford to hire a nanny or take the child to day care.

    Pros

    The only pro is the three-day, twelve-hour work week.

    Cons

    The sad pay, NO raises, NOWHERE to go, NO advancement, NO communication from management, uncaring supervisors, an all-around pathetic, OLD-technology data center.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with the actual workers, find out what THEY need and DO IT for them.

    Company has little reputation, Sales are cut-throat for Outside Business Developers

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

    Pros

    Easy hiring process, straightforward training, if you are mildly intelligent, the IT world isn't hard to grasp. They invest in getting you well-known certifications in the IT world. Management tries to keep the sales people abreast of company activities via meetings and weekly calls. All major holidays are paid and vacation accrues 2 weeks/yr.

    Cons

    OEM partners don't want to work with you unless you have identified a lead already. Corporate support teams and channel partner teams are NOT speedy with returning calls or inquiries. As an outside sales rep, prepare to smile and dial your day away. Most prospects don't know who pomeroy is, and they are not well known unless you have a job at the corporate location. You make about 100 calls a week, management keeps a strong eye on all your calls and sales activities. Getting opportunities are very difficult although management says to 'keep pushing' and have a can-do attitude. Sales cycles are long and tedious, support teams often create errors in the process which angers clients. Salary was mediocre, health benefits were almost non-existant ($5000 deductible before the cover anything)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pomeroy needs to make a better effort to market themselves outside of just using sales folks.
