    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 three, twelve-hour days, which give you a decent amount of time off.

    Cons

    Lack of variety of job duties, NO raises, NO advancement, NOWHERE to go from this position, plus, it really doesn't matter how well you do your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some advancement options, plus more variety of tasks into your data centers

    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.

    -Not many new opportunities for advancement.
    -Wont learn much considering the field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Site managers could use more training and quarterly performance reviews are irrelevant considering the small amount of responsibilities.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to put your fingers in a bunch of different pots. Career growth potential, if it's available to you. Management is very employee-centric and shows the appreciation frequently. People are very friendly and willing to pitch in & help out when needed. Lots of parties are thrown and opportunities to network with people from different departments/remote employees. Building great training program to help train managers and employees.

    Cons

    Benefit costs are HIGH. The PTO plan is great, if you don't have to go on medical leave or have something tragic happen to you. Rules apply to certain departments and not to others--very little is uniform on that front--and department heads like to "create rules" without anyone's consent and expect people to abide by them. Work-life balance and trust is preached but with crossed fingers. Discretionary match on the 401(k) makes it difficult to grow your 401(k).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop low-balling quality candidates with job offers. Learn to trust employees with work-from-home opportunities. Establish a succession plan in certain departments so quality employees can grow within your company. Expand your benefits to such things as tuition reimbursement and dedicated sick time.

    Pros

    If you are on contract the best is the opportunity to work at a client site, where you may be appreciated enough to be seen and hired as a direct employee.

    Cons

    The quality of your work environment under contract will clearly be highly dependent on your immediate supervisor. They obviously will make the difference between good culture, motivated employees, and team morale. You should interview them as strongly as they interview you. Remember to separate out their desires and intents from the things they can actually control, which will be very few.

    I cannot recommend them for compensation, growth, benefits, or other services provided by the corporate offices. View your immediate manager as attempting to serve multiple masters, since the client will be at the top of the list, followed by the corporate office and policy, followed by your manager's intent and skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company does not provide the needed time or training, or succession planning needed to make a top tier employer for employees in contact positions. Since they are typically larger revenue and profit generators, this is unfortunate.

    Management appears to provide ample propaganda regarding the opportunities and changes about to occur, just remember there will be less delivered than promised.

    Note, I'm highly biased, and expect a great deal from people that are well compensated, and professing to be leadership caliber. Most managers will fail in my expectations, and are actually administrators and liaison personnel. Management that espouses the Gordon Gekko philosophy, will have difficulty leading a company to a sustainable environment that attracts the needed talent and loyalty from their people.
