    Pros

    Decent pay. Decent benefits after the 90-day waiting period. Peers were good guys willing to help you in any way.

    Cons

    Company will work you hard and no matter how dedicated you are, they will show you the door without notice and/or explanation. Upper management are jerks with no respect for their workers. They will mislead you into thinking your job is stable and once you've done whatever needs to be accomplished.....you get an email telling you that you're terminated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some appreciation and loyalty to your employees.

    Pros

    What i absolutely love about this company is the time frame that it takes you to complete a certain amount of machines. For example, if you have 5 machines scheduled to do at night and you finish those under your 8 hours, you're done for the day, that's your 8 hours under 3 hours. There's a con against that though and ill explain later. With zero micromanagement, you can pretty much do whatever you want at the pace you want. Keep in mind that you still have to do your work otherwise you're getting chewed out the next day. With InPlace upgrades, it takes about 2.5 hours to build a machine. You can take a lunch while these machines are building. You still get your 8 hours too. Remember, you have to come back within that time to finish you job.

    Cons

    I been with this company for awhile and one reason, they promised OT. The workload got extensive. This is what they do. Your 5 machines minimum, now turns into 15 machines. About the OT, you need approval. They promise so many things to put your hopes up that when it comes to tripling your productivity, the expectations are that you finish it within 8 hours. And good luck getting a lunch break on this one. One of the unfair things about this place. You have to have something to snack on. I'd say its against the law but the moment you complain, they'll just can you. That's how shady this place is. The boss's, they're jerks and they have zero respect for you. In this place, i have been disrespected by the boss and bullied. Yes, all these are big no no's of the company.

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

    Pros

    Company benefits after 1 yr.

    Cons

    Poor project management. If you're a manager\coordinator who doesn't do your job and produce a working schedule in a timely fashion, then it trickles down to the workload (or lack thereof) for the team under you. No training to newer employees by upper management\supervisors. Due to high performance and task demands, seasoned technicians do not have time to "train" them from the ground up. Supervisors known to force techs to work past their 8 hour shifts without OT compensation. Technicians blamed for not managing time properly when this happens. Punishments have occurred too often. For example, a technician being sat out from work for a certain period of time (an entire week? Seriously?) because their direct report supervisor didn't like the outcome of a certain event or situation. I have never seen such a high turnover rate in any organization. Work/life balance is non-existent.

    Pros

    The people in the trenches doing the day to day activities are so hard working and loyal. It is sad that the upper management does not see this.

    Cons

    Everyone is completely expendable to upper management. They use and abuse their employees. They work you like a dog until they don't need you anymore and then you are shown the door. I will be surprised if this company makes it through to the end of the year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs a complete overhaul in their thinking and management. People work faster and more efficiently when they are happy in their jobs and not constantly fretting about when they will get the phone call that they are no longer needed.

    Pros

    A job at least, that will screw you over on overtime.

    Cons

    Do not pay you overtime if you work it at times. Do not offer any breaks or lunch time even on 12 hour plus work days. Terrible management. Do not work here. They will use and abuse you, then lay you off with no notice. They are complete scum bags.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kill yourselves, it's the only solution for you greedy scum bags.

    Pros

    The fellow refresh techs that they hire along with me are very nice guys that are trying their best to do what management staff demands without giving proper training and just expect you to learn from day one on your own.

    Cons

    Witnessed how management threw one of the tech's under the bus by telling the security for the client that the tech caused an auto accident with the client's employee when management asked that tech and other techs to use their vehicles to move around 200 LCD monitors from one building to another across the street on company paid work time. No job I have ever worked for had I ever see something like this done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop yelling at your techs for taking too long to roll out Desktops when you have not done proper builds during the day or throwing employees under the bus for trying to do work that you instructed us to do or laying blame on everyone for one tech's mistake.
