    Good company in a declining marketplace

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Lake Buena Vista, FL

    ProsGreat people, intimate work environment. Good processes and procedures. Recognition of value of work/home life balance.

    ConsDeclining technology niche with associated margin pressures.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Unrealistic expectations, there is no balance with personal life. You can and will get called at all hours.

    Data Manager (Former Employee)
    Orlando, FL

    ProsNice people, decent location. Varying enough that the week is interesting.

    ConsLackluster management, stagnant pay, long hours. Lack of spending on technology and pay. Anything purchased off PO is expected to be purchased on your own credit card and they can take up to 4 weeks to send you the expense check. Your bonus will suffer because of poor decisions made by local management. They blame you for their mistakes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more money to grow your business...Spend money on staffing the right people for the job. People with the certs you require can do much better in other industries. You have to spend to retain talent. Otherwise you will have a revolving door...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    More concern on looking smart, rather than being smart.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Las Vegas, NV

    ProsDefinitely gives you an insight into the behind the scenes on how data networking is provided to the tradeshow industry. Serviced locations are operated in a franchise-type manner. Mix of good leaders overall. Provides exposure to the tradeshow industry in combination with the technology field. Benefits are decent.

    ConsCompany does not focus on the value of their services. Reaction time to change is slow. Corporate support is lacking. Salaries are not competitive. Lack of appreciation and retention of talented employees. Not much room for advancement. High employee turnover.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompany is too dependent on their technology department. Communicate more and be consistent on communication. Change needs to occur from the top down. Get new talent to be more innovative, rather than operating on fear.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
