    Pros

    A lot of exposure to the biggest & best OEMs. Excellent Inside Sales Support.

    Cons

    Locked into working w Cisco & EMC too much. Internal issues often deter moral bc we want to provide the client with the best outcome possible and sometimes the resources are overbooked. Presidio needs to hire more strong engineers to scale better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consolidate the systems better, use a better CRM and get out in the field more.

    I worked at Presidio as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology, fast paced environment, friendly staff, and well stocked kitchen. The working environment was quiet but fast, and there was a lot of really cool technology to make work easier and more efficient.

    Cons

    The building was cold in winter and hot in the summer. As a temp it was not a permanent position, sadly and as such when the economy turned down a notch it was impossible to remain, even though they asked me to come back later

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your high performers when they are available to you

    Family culture and the ability to work with all teams across the board. Strong vendor relationships and engineering excellence enables Presidio to execute for our customers and continue to grow over the years.

    Like any company we have challenges, however because of the above mentioned structure above we have the ability to get through most challenges throughout the days/weeks/quarters/years.

    Margins and Billable Hours!!!

    Pros

    You mostly get to telecommute, especially if you're a PM or Engineer. Quarterly bonuses are good, but beware they are totally dependent on billable hours and "utilization", both of which are out of your control, despite what they tell you. The bonus and OT is great, IF you work 70+ hour weeks. Be sure to review the "compensation package" carefully!

    Cons

    Project Managers are not technically savvy and mostly mediocre. Engineering managers are always MIA and seldom reach out to their subordinates. There is a HUGE disconnect between pre-sales and delivery teams. Account managers and pre-sales engineers often over-sell solutions without understanding client requirements. Expect to be thrown into the wolves on short notice, being asked to jump into a project mid-stream with next to no information or requirements provided to you. Back end operations are sub-par, ranging from Benefits/HR/Help Desk to so called "service coordinators" who don't do much of anything. Expect to be double-booked and over utilized working on 6+ projects simultaneously. If you're a project manager, expect to manage two dozen projects simultaneously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shake up the ladder from the top down. There is a lot of overhead in this company and it can be run a lot leaner. Seems that on a regional basis, the story is always the same. Presidio buys a local company and turns it into an unpleasant place to work. There is a reason Presidio is a revolving door of employees.

    I worked at Presidio full-time

    Pros

    I spent 5 years of my life at Presidio. In the beginning, it was a great place to work. The money was always above average. The last 12-18 months were absolutely HORRIBLE and I could not get out of there fast enough.

    Cons

    Engineering management's vision is office independent and extremely black and white -- don't expect anyone in engineering to think outside the box because they won't. Also, don't expect that the vision in one office matches another. There are literally 20 different visions within one company. You will get a story about their single vision and perhaps that is the case at the upper management level but is hardly the case at the local level.

    Pre-sales engineering has tunnel vision and needs to get out of the office more. They over-price their services and think they are justified because "We are Presidio".

    Delivery engineers are treated one step above endentured servants. They get stuck working every weekend and have a poor work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You preach about a "destination workplace" -- get out in the field and see if that is really the case. I suggest you ask the employees that aren't part of the local management cliques what they think about their local office. Also, the absolute biggest joke is sending an employee who is leaving an "exit interview" that some HR intern created with Survey Monkey and expecting you will get effective and meaningful feedback.
