At the end of the day, we're here to help you solve your technology problems. In order to be successful, we needed to create an environment in which every piece of our surroundings and plans helps us focus on that end.
So we did some soul-searching and came up with some core values. Which attributes must our employees and our plans possess for us to consistently reach our goal? Lots of companies have core values, and they all sound great, but we really wanted to commit to ours. We implemented them as guidelines for hiring, performance evaluation, and to gauge the overall state of our company culture.
We couldn't be happier with the results.
We built our team around people who live and breathe these values, and the result has been a healthy, positive culture that produces tremendous results for our clients. Following our values ensures that we are made of the right people who have the right attitude to help our clients solve their technology problems.

Your knowledge will constantly grow as things are ever changing.
The co-workers actually work with each other instead of against each other.

If you don't like on call work this is not the place for you. There are rotating on call shifts for techs.
Very structured in how documentation is performed but that is not necessarily a Con per say but if you are the type to want to do you own thing when it comes to documentation please do not apply.
Advice to Management
Just keep doing what you are doing.
Helping techs out when problems occur is amazing
Keep up the positive feedback and reward the techs for hard work
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Switchfast Technologies (Chicago, IL) in April 2016.
Casual but also there is a test to take (be prepared). There are a lot of questions that are very technical so if you talk the talk you must walk the walk.
