    Very low ceiling with not much room for advancement.

    Encourage employees to learn new things.

    Pros

    US Computer Corp seems to have a talent with choosing the right people and backing them fully with honest feedback and all the right tools for success. They expect employees to represent them well and the treat their employees very respectfully as well. No micro managing/lots of trust in employee's abilities to respond appropriately to the situation. They are quick to answer establish contact as the need arises and they communicate very effectively.

    Cons

    The website is aimed at the client and doesn't have much for the employee. Any information needed should be requested from management.

    Advice to Management

    An online employee section of the website would be nice, especially with a calendar of important events.

    Pros

    Great people, good management. I have always been treated with fairness and respect.

    Cons

    No real career advancement. They contract support services to larger companies. Advancement depends on economy and plans of external large corporate customers.

    Advice to Management

    Spend money on training.

    Pros

    Talented and personable co-workers. No micro-managing by management. Good benefits package. They expect great customer service from everyone and consistently attract seasoned and talented IT Support staff. They do a fair job of communicating their appreciation for their staff and how the staff reflects on the corporation.

    Cons

    US Computer contracts IT support personnel into larger corporations and as such there is no real career path. They do not fund technical training of any sort. There is no real performance review process and annual raises are barley cost of living adjustments. You have to get your salary "up front" when negotiating with them.

    Advice to Management

    Fund training. Keep abreast of market rate salaries for the various IT positions you fill and pay accordingly.
