I worked at ITsavvy full-time
ITsavvy is a big company that isn't going anywhere anytime soon. You punch in and work hard, you could have a job for life. Room for advancement if you go into sales...the possible income is endless. They do hire upper management from within sometimes. If you want that position, work for it, ask for it, prove you want it. 3 weeks vacation accrued over a year. The company tries to keep employee moral up with occasional events and casual days. Over all, if you show up and just do your job, you will be just fine.
Average pay for the workload. You are expected to work, and work hard, the entire time you are punched in. The Corporate Office environment is not the cheeriest of places. Mingling, chatting, laughing is not acceptable. It is uncomfortably quiet in that office. Not much room for advancement within the Administrative side. Small raises with more responsibility added on top of an already heavy workload. Every single moment is micromanaged by upper management. Not the most 'Family Friendly' of companies. If you have to leave early because of a sick kid, you will be forced to take a half day of vacation time. Management isn't the best at praising a job well done. Mostly just pointing out mistakes. No incentives or bonuses for Administrative staff. They do have a great Holiday luncheon every year where the entire company is invited, a delicious lunch is served and awards are handed out to top employees. They also hand out certificates to the top sales staff. It's hard to watch the top sales get recgonized for their millions of dollars in sales that year as the rest of the staff walk out of the office Christmas Eve without a Christmas Bonus.
Advice to Management
Invest in your employees. Offer incentives for hard work. Your administrative staff is what makes your company successful.
I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ITsavvy (Addison, IL) in January 2015.
Direct interview with management. Was looking to move from Admin to Sales. I approached my manager and we discussed the possibility. This company thrives on sales. My manager thought that I would be a good fit for the job. We discussed the fine print and I went home that night and slept on it.
Reasons for Declining
I decided not to take the position based on the criteria for selling services instead of hardware for this company. I had to pick one or the other. I couldn't sell both. I didn't want to just sell one end of the product line.
