    I worked at Cambridge Networks full-time

    Pros

    Puts customer first n always trys to make customer happy
    Always put customer first
    Always try to anticipate wot customer wants from products the manager thinks he know.

    Cons

    Rarely sells current stuff
    Rarely implements current technologys
    Manager held on too tight and often asked the impossible, sumtimes even insisting on ridiculous things becoz he thought it was right way but never sends anyone to learn the current way 2 do things. Customer always ended up with a cheap solution that cut corners and then when it din't work rite we swallowed cost 2 fix it. Great for the customer that don't want to spend money, rubbish for profit margin I bet.
    Morale generally low, nobody was truly happy but stayed bcoz when owner was out of office or on hols it was gr8 place to work. Moment he came in it became a witch-hunt tho and it was always 'who will Greg pick on next'. He would always have 1 favourite who could do no wrong (whoever was newest) and would then project his insecuritys on rotation to whichever person last tryed to tell him "no" bcoz his idea was wrong or outdated last.

    Advice to Management

    Greg should stop pretending 2 b technical n go on sales and management courses. Hire a dedicated second sales person as technical Presales. Stop selling cheap crap n offering customers a bargain option that u'll lose money fixing.

    IT Support Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Huntingdon, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cambridge Networks (Huntingdon, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Face to face chat followed by a technical test which involves some very basic IT questions and answers but doesn't offer a real insight into if a person is capable of doing the job.
    As proof of this the company had several staff join and leave very quickly, some because they weren't good enough and some because they couldn't work with the managers.

    Interview Questions

    • Simple IT questions like what is the purpose of DNS. To work in IT support they should give questions similar to a Microsoft technical exam.   1 Answer
