    I worked at AH Computer Consulting full-time

    Pros

    Very diverse staff. Small company meant more opportunities to work with various types of systems. They were good about dealing with work-life balance in general (for me anyway), *if* and *when* a given project wasn't in crisis mode.

    Cons

    Most projects seemed to always be in crisis mode; more often than not there was some kind of emergency. At times we worked 70 hour weeks (and we were salaried, so no overtime).

    One office would follow best practices, e.g. version control and standard operating procedures, while the other office didn't seem to follow them at all, and it could be a nightmare trying to get the various pieces to work.

    I had high hopes for the organization, but in hindsight I should've gotten out of there a lot sooner than I did.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    This is Tony, I used to work in the help desk, management helped me advance my career and move from 30K Salary range to a Remedy developer in a matter of two years with salary over 60K. I was personally faced with personal issues and the management conducted and participated in a fund raising for me and my family.

    Clients some time very demanding and we had to put extra time

    Advice to Management

    Thanks to you all helping me

    Pros

    Actually getting paid on time, which was never a guarantee. At least it was a job and the money was descent for me.

    Cons

    Horrible management; they were liars and cheats; could have ruined lives due to their own greed & lack of character; traveling to countries that US citizens were warned about;

    Advice to Management

    Quit while you think you are ahead!

    I have been working at AH Computer Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Growing INSANELY. Great benefits, hands on experience, very competitive pay rates and the people are just great! The environmental culture is relaxed while there is a major feeling of being a part of a team. The company's mission statement is clear and it seems that all colleagues really are there to collaborate and help. Expectations and goals are high but the support is present to help all employees achieve set goals. Management want to help their teams succeed.

    Cons

    Its quite rare to find a parking spot near the company.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for your support and motivation

    I worked at AH Computer Consulting full-time

    Pros

    None, There was a wii that broke. There was a coffee machine that you had to pay for, and the ping pong table we only had time to get on like once a month.

    They cut our pay. They didn't pay us for 2 months and then gave us a 1,000 dollar bonus but that just barely covered all the late fees. We were all promised raises, but they never came.

    Cons

    There was no HR department. The single lady that constituted HR got fired after 5 years of loyal service when she requested maternity leave.
    There were no such things as working conditions, they tarred the roof and the entire building smelled terrible and toxic. We were told not to leave. At some point it got so bad we all just got out of there. During the crazy snowstorm where vans were buried in snow, we were told we had to go in, and they paid for our hotel rooms. We had to walk around in the snow looking for an open restaurant to actually eat.
    In agreeance with the above, Salaries were WAAAY below average. I got paid 30k and the average was 50k at the time.

    Advice to Management

    You need to treat your employees better. Some of the things I experienced in your company I never thought I would ever go through in my life. When you keep your employees happy, your employees will do their hardest for the company, rather than see it as a paycheck.
