    Pros

    Great training, Helpdesk and NOC are mostly good to work with. There is a maintenance side and there is an installation side.

    Cons

    Things changed a lot when West took over. A lot of cuts. Longmont employees morale is low. No room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    It would seem there is no room for growth.

    Interview

    I was contacted and phone screened by a recruiter after my resume was submitted to the talent pool. I interviewed in person with 2 supervisors and an Ops manager and then a few days later I interviewed with the supervisor I would be working for. In about 2 weeks, I was contacted again by the recruiter and hired.

    In tech recruiting, playing it safe is risky business

    Some companies are trying to circumvent these roadblocks with blind coding challenges, blind screenings, hiding resumes and identifying credentials from hiring managers and recruiters, but this isn't having the impact it should, Taggar says. "These blind screenings and anonymous interviewing processes are really exciting developments, but the impact is minimal.

  • The Company also announced a $0.225 per common share dividend which is payable on September 1, 2016 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on August 22, 2016. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vIh2s
