    Former Employee - Service Desk Technician

    Pros

    - 401k, Health.. all paid by a federal credit (Unsure how this is across the board, was the truth for the contract I worked under)
    - Understanding HR
    - Decent experience, depending on where you are, and what contract
    - Most people will be friendly and helpful if you have any trouble

    Cons

    - Some Gov employees hate the help desk experience, will be hard on you
    - Schedules may be inflexible depending on need
    - Gov contracts may not be renewed/granted to the same company
    - Rushed training, trial by fire(Not that bad, but it can be overwhelming in the first 3 months)
    - Limited info on best practices

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture of open communication alive. Being honest about the gov contract process is preferred. Rushed training hurts the team more.

    Pros

    Free bagels, fruit and coffee! There are often employee development opportunities that are amazing! ASM also provides free training to all employees to build their arsenal of certifications and CEs!

    Team morale is very low coupled by a very vivid lack of enthusiasm by fellow employees. Management is very novice and unaware of team issues. Incentives for promotions are very slow to be provided.

    Advice to Management

    To be genuine with employees. The lack of integrity from the top down is very evident and reflected through those working under their leadership.
