    I worked at BlueStream full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    kept me busy for 1.5 years with good entry level position pay. I managed to sock away some money with the HSA plan as well and the time off schedule worked for me when they were paying for all travel

    Cons

    constant change of mid-level management eroded stability

    Advice to Management

    well everyone is changed by now from the top down but, get good people and keep them rather than letting them quit for personal reasons

    Pros

    I have been with this company, or it's previous iterations, for a very long time and can honestly say that this is by far the most exciting and opportunistic time to work here. The direction and execution from the leadership team and the commitment of the owners is head and shoulders above anything I have experienced at ADC, TE, or the two subs I worked for previously.

    Cons

    I personally don't have any cons to mention because I enjoy my job here and the people. There were times when I didn't enjoy my job and/or couldn't make more money because I was at the top of my salary range. I prepared myself to get a new job here (several times). There are tons of jobs open all over our company and parent company, but if you're not prepared to do them that's partially on you.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to communicate successes better than you do today. Expand career and professional development training and planning.

    I worked at BlueStream (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The money was good, check always cleared, hrs never manipulated by managers. People in the organization were positive and helpful.

    Cons

    The direction of the company was always an unknown. Top management was changing frequently. Always afraid of the next layoff. Definitely felt like a number versus a contributing member.

    Advice to Management

    Identify what teams members are worth keeping around, and let them know that they are the chosen ones. Focus on their key compencies and work on turning around the toxic culture that exists now.

    BlueStream Response

    Due to the volatile industry it's always unfortunate when a lay off has to occur. With the new top management in place, we are continually to try to keep that from happening and assess optimum... More
