I worked at AdvizeX full-time (More than a year)
AdvizeX is a great company to work for and learn if you are in IT. They are partners with three of the major technology companies, HP, EMC, and VMware. With the backing of these solutions, they design solutions for their customers. AdvizeX customer base is usually small to medium size organization, ranging from food companies to healthcare. They provide their employees with an extensive amount of training to make sure they can meet their customers expectations.
Recently AdvizeX was aquired by Rolta. Their focus is changing to managed services. The one main problem with managed service for Rolta AdvizeX is that their customer base is small to medium size business that aren't interested in Oracle and SAP managed services. This has made it very challenging for sales and pre-sales engineers.
Advice to Management
Stick with your sweet spot, even with the rise of the public cloud, there is still a tremendous opportunity to provide technology solutions to small and medium size business that maintain on-premise infrastructure.
Most technical engineers are very competent. They highly invest in certifications and needed training. The post sales consultants have a broad level of knowledge. The company's executive management maintains excellent high level partnerships. The senior leadership is VERY competent. Fred (CEO) is one of the most observant people I have ever met.
There are only a few excellent sales executives that support most of the company. Some middle managers are too narrow focused and divert blame the wrong way. Some of the areas are too lax in the way they do business. The hiring policy of the sales force especially should be stricter.
Advice to Management
Several people sort of "slide by" without having to take responsibility for thier actions; while this happens easily in large companies, small companies need to be more responsive. Marketing and Sales should research the documentation they present to the company before releasing to the general employees.
