    Pros

    Great people in the office in which I worked, but the same cannot be said for what management is present outside the office.

    Cons

    This company grows by acquiring companies, not by building solid relationships with existing clients or building a broader pipeline of clients. They have a non-compete document from hell, and use intimidation techniques when bringing new folks into the organization through acquisitions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to grow by acquisition and take care of your clients. Buying distressed firms (USRobotics, GTSI, etc.) just makes things worse. The founder-president-CEO needs to stop thinking he is the smartest man in the universe, and actually listen to people who work for him.

    Crushed our Product Development, QA, and Support Organizations: Look Elsewhere for a ITIL/ITSM solution

    Former Employee - Software QA Manager in Boston, MA

    Pros

    I worked with a dedicated local team initially

    Cons

    Shortly after being acquired our company IET Solutions saw dramatic changes forced upon us by the Unicom Management team. In an effort to improve margins we stopped developing our product, the QA organization was let go, and even the product/customer support group was terminated. The office in the US was reduced to 3 staff members. Ultimately only the German team remains to support and maintain an aging product line that is relying on existing customer renewals of maintenance for revenue. Look elsewhere for an ITIL or ITSM product. The executive team of Unicom Global that acquired IET Solutions was nothing short of deceiptful and ruthless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick with buying intellectual property that can be resold on high margin. Stay away from companies involving people that support clients

    Pros

    There are no "best" reasons of working here, shocking. Didn't even want to rate it with the one star.

    Cons

    Poorly managed, don't give the proper training, expect you do things with no experience. Don't follow the disaplinary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sort it out, people are leaving after working there for a day because it's that shocking

    Pros

    Non whatsoever! Absolutely nothing good to say about Unicom.

    Cons

    Very amateur business set up. Training is non existent! Management have no social skills whatsoever. Working in basic conditions and below the regulatory temperatures, when employees tried to wear warm clothing, swore at and told to take them off. PLEASE! Don't work for them at any cost, even if you are desperate!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employ managers who have been trained in social skills(especially regional manager. Nottingham.). You need to look at working conditions too. Really your company is a shambles and should be closed down. Perhaps you need to take a closer look,
