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

    Pros

    Great CEO. Great leadership change. I have been with the business for almost three years and amazed at the change.

    Cons

    Some of the employees who have worked her for years do not like the change. They are set in their ways and not willing to change. I reviewed many of the reviews on Glass Door and many of the negative comments are from those who have been here a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and communication. Like the changes that I am seeing.

    Pros

    Elevated ideas come into play through discussion and constructive listening. To the point , solid intelligence and knowledge. Boundless expertise and creative problem solving.

    The hours are weird. Outside of that, I can offer nothing but praise for the amount of skill, dedication and brutal honesty. You can never be prepared enough.

    Advice to Management

    Keep one idea in line and follow through. Be willing to listgen a little bit. The advice and guidance was extraordinary. It was a true pleasure to be your company and hope to do it again.

    Pros

    Great experience! It is a multitasking, challenging work environment. There is always something new and exciting to do. On a daily basis you are expose to new technology, new challenges that made every day a new and rewarding experience.

    Company is in transition from merging multiple acquisitions to a single company. This is creating disruption to the customer base and employees, but nothing more than what would be expected when taking on this endeavor.

    Pros

    Lots of skill sets on the sales side but especially the technical side. Wide reach geographically. We can support any size company in any location with the most popular products in the marketplace.

    Cons

    With so many offices it has been challenging at times to find the right resource to help an opportunity. BUT all that is changing very rapidly these next few months and making that so much easier to track down and help.
