    I worked at BestIT full-time

    Pros

    Free snacks (sometimes) available in the break room for when you were expected to work through lunch or stay late. You will appreciate previous employers (and future) much more after the experience. High turnover, so lots of new faces, and you likely will not be around long either after seeing how the place is run.

    Cons

    Inept, dishonest, and arrogant management. The "leadership" roles are filled with people who talk big, but cannot deliver. People are constantly hired or fired based on prospective deals that almost always fall through once the potential customer sees through the gimmick. If you end up coming here and are actually introduced to people, ask how long they have been employed. Also, try looking for their name plate of their desk to see if it matches - they have likely been shuffled around on "visitor" days in order to make the office seem full. Just search for the long list of previous BestIT employees on social media. Or instead of social media, just look at the "leadership" page of BestIT's website itself. Around ten of the twelve people listed are no longer with the company. There is a reason so many last for just a few months.

    Advice to Management

    Update your website, or at least your twitter feed. Maybe if you can handle that, you can move on to real responsibility.

    I worked at BestIT full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is decent. Benefits good. Location central. Free soda and snacks when they are profitable.

    Cons

    No leadership! No understanding of operating IT projects with project requirements or plans.
    Micro manage you with misguided effort.
    Good propel are let go when project ends. It's a subcontractors nightmare. It's not hiring anyone to keep long term. Owners are rude and don't listen to other employees. It's been a trip. Not recommended for long term.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in a true IT professional partner to lead you or fail. Hire a strong SE and partner with other IT vendors to specialize on subject areas. Get certified in some it areas. You are to unfocused. Develop yiour own strategy roadmap and build it out.

    I worked at BestIT full-time

    Pros

    It’s good if you want a stop-gap job while you are searching for one.

    Cons

    You may see some board like “Beware of Dogs”. I would say the same with BestIT. If you are joining this company means you are loosing your life, career, family and money.

    Advice to Management

    Guys, What the heck are you doing with this type of business? I’m surprised how do you sleep and eat everyday by doing this kind of unethical business. Is this how you want to help your family ?

    Pros

    Working at BestIT will give a good perspective on how low a company can sink as far as ethics are concerned. You may be asked to embellish a resume in order for sales to try to win a bid. In fact, your resume may even be in use after you've been laid off! You may also be asked to place some RSA secureID tokens in front of a webcam so your offshore counterparts can view them, certainly violating previous agreements with the customer and owner of the secureID tokens. You may be asked to move desks temporarily while a customer is on site, giving the illusion of an office full of employees. You may even be asked to write a positive Glassdoor review in order to push the truthful reviews off the front page.

    Cons

    After a short while you will realize you were lied during every step of the hiring process. Colleagues disappear frequently. The break room isn't always stocked. You'll start worrying if your paycheck will even arrive.

    Advice to Management

    Hope you haven't wasted all the money on cars.
