I have been working at Globecomm full-time
Unlimited sick time accrual, great deal of independence, some of my colleagues are very skilled at what they do, established supplier of telecommunication services and infrastructure, interesting work, long history with some customers
Senior Management is very disconnected from day to day activity, lack of Senior Management strategic vision, no focus on core business, sales of new services relies on a few sales personnel and others sales personnel under-perform with no expectation of repercussion, benefits package is less than attractive to new talent, very limited potential for promotion or advancement
Advice to Management
Better communication of strategic goals and how we get there and how we as employees can make that happen, better communication of direction of company and long range plan, time to start cutting at the senior management structure to create a more robust response to changing market requirements, start holding management and sales accountable for poor performance as a company cannot survive if it is only depending on the alpha employees to carry the day. Stop punishing those who perform well with more work, it destroys morale and leads to reduced performance as there is no benefit to doing a great job.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Globecomm (Hauppauge, NY) in January 2009.
Globecomm starts hiring with a telephonic interview and preselects the candidate and arranges onsite interview with almost everyone in the team looking to hire. Once selected, they will start the salary negotiations
It was multiple phases and its always better to negotiation with the hiring manager.
