    I have been working at AdvizeX full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great salary, great learning experience for engineers

    Disjoined Sr Managment and limited post sales team support. There is a large portfolio of solutions but no many people that can install the solution.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more Sr Engineering staff

    I worked at AdvizeX full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Years ago this was a good place to work.
    -Decent benefits.
    -Friendly coworkers.
    -Ability to work remotely.
    -Reasonable expense policies.

    Cons

    -Sales staff are not able to keep consultants working.
    -Management is misguided and delusional. They have no grasp on the business or the industry.
    -Purchased several years ago by a foreign company which has caused a disconnect.
    -Limited capabilities to keep up with evolving technologies.
    -No training for staff.
    -Middle management will belittle you. This seems to be out of a lack of ability to actually manage. You can tell they are incapable of doing the job and treading water.
    -Middle management has been swapped more times than one can count on both hands.
    -The structure of upper management seems to change weekly.
    -No praise for going the extra mile. The only recognition you will get here is if you're in sales and make a big deal or you're an executive.
    -Ultimately, they treat staff like garbage. They will fire people due to their own deficiencies. The ones they keep they abuse both verbally and mentally. By far the most toxic employer I've ever had the displeasure of working for.
    -Absolutely no standards, makes up process on the fly.
    -Distrusting of clients, will tack-on additional charges for company mistakes and will present it to the client as a client mistake.

    Advice to Management

    Give up.

    Pros

    I work with many great consultants who are very knowledgeable and know their technology. Great teamwork among different groups of consultants.

    Cons

    Terrible upper management with no clear direction or understanding of business needs when it comes to technology. Leadership is terrible and have laid off 50 employees and closed down many branches. Its a sinking ship trying to stay afloat. Was once a great company to work for but now that the boys club is in place they don't even realize what they have done to the company. No communication from upper management. Cant get bonuses because they cannot get enough work to keep the consultants busy. I have had many clients say we love the consultants but dealing with managers and administrative people is a pain. Company is trying to find a buyer to save it. Corporate office on the east coast is out of touch with the rest of the branches.

    Advice to Management

    Get some fresh blood in place before the company goes under. Upper management is stuck on what they have done in the past and the future is passing them by. Sales staff is lazy and rely on existing clients, no big push to get new clients. Upper management need to get some people skills.

    I worked at AdvizeX (More than a year)

    Pros

    The organization is good and the people were professional. They care about customers and treat them right. Solid local reputation within the OEM vendor community.

    Cons

    At the time, this office primary focus was on selling technology hardware and software. Margins for hardware has decreased and professional and consulting services needs to become a clear differentiation.

    Pros

    Very strong team of engineers
    Great leaders that walk the talk and have been there. Not a bunch of keyboard managers. Tim, Dennis, and all the other leaders are committed to helping the sales team win deals.
    You'll get all the support you need from engineering to close deals.
    Strong relationships with the OEM's/
    They will let you be creative in marketing ideas and not afraid to let you spend money.
    Strong work life balance

    Cons

    Base is very low and over all comp is not great. Even milage is on the low side.
    No real standard marketing plan. Its up to each salesperson to do their own thing.

    Advice to Management

    Better comp plan. More interaction with parent company.

    I have been working at AdvizeX full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked at other System Integrators in New England and I can honestly say this one is different from the rest. Some of the key differences are:
            - Narrow focus on OEMs. If its not HP, EMC, VMware, Oracle, or VCE we don't sell it (there are a few exceptions)
              which means we have great relationships with those OEMs and the technical expertise goes deep and wide
              within these products which makes it less stressful on the Architects and Consultants as well as better customer
              outcomes
            - Senior Management is very fiscally responsible and as a result the company carries no debt. I feel very secure
               in my position at AdvizeX, layoffs are almost non-existent.
            - There is lots of opportunity for employee input. There is almost constant opportunity to help shape AdvizeX's
               go-to-market strategy through various sub teams that are created to come up with recommendations on what
               solutions our customers need.
            - There are good opportunities for growth. With the merger with Rolta this company is poised for some explosive
              growth which means there are going to be new positions being created in many different areas of the company.

    Cons

    - AdvizeX has great support staff but could use more of them especially as the company continues to grow.
    - Marketing has been an issue but has recently starting being addressed with a much better overall social media
      strategy

    Advice to Management

    Keep it going! This company is poised to do some great things!

    Pros

    Advizex has solid leadership that is tied into all it's major partners allowing them to stay ahead the curve and insuring they give the best advice and service to their customers. The ability to stay ahead of market trends enables Advizex to differentiate itself in the market and attract highly skilled employees.

    Cons

    The companies fast growth can spread some employees to thin. Although they continuously look to attract quality employees companies growing at this rate have a hard time finding the level of skills to match the pace of growth.

    Advice to Management

    Remain focused on your core values as the company grows.
