    I worked at VelociTel full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some very nice people to work with, but not many. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    From day one the management and peers worked to make me feel like an outsider. Every responsibility that I was handed was disparaged with no path for improvement or advice given.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only management that I had any contact with was at the local branch level. These people seemed to operate on a minute to minute plan. I never had the feeling that our work was appreciated beyond just being there 8 hours a day. Scott Adams could get tons of new material.

    Pros

    Good pay, Good direct managers - not all but a few good jems, there are a lot of different aspects of the wireless industry you can learn here

    Cons

    No Bonuses, still a growing company no project management system, etc. No real training, its all on the fly just shadowing someone in the field. They are putting something together soon I hear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees, especially the ones giving up there lives working in the field. Even a gift card if not a bonus every once in a while speaks volumes to these guys, especially if you want to retain the good ones.

    Company performance is highly dependent on cyclical revenues from one main client.
    Competitors currently hold a larger share of business in most markets.
    The company doesn't have the structure in place for employee career development.

    It's time to diversify into other lines of business.
