    I have been working at Cactus Sky Communications

    Pros

    Not too many here at Csd, lead igniter, testimonial builder or the other names Peter Martin uses.

    Cons

    The positive reviews were written upon request as a task by the owner.

    Advice to Management

    Close.

    I worked at Cactus Sky Communications full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The best things that I got out of working for this company was getting to talk to clients who were some really nice people and the few friends I made while I was there.

    Cons

    I have read through many of the reviews and felt it important for people that are looking to work for this company to know what they will be getting into. On the second week that I worked there, another employee told me, "do not expect this to be a forever job." At that time I thought this was just a disgruntled employee but as time went on, I began to understand this employees feelings. Most employees do not last...

    Advice to Management

    I really do not feel that any advice I would give to Management would be paid any attention so I am not going to bother.

    I have been working at Cactus Sky Communications full-time

    Pros

    It is technically a business. So there is that. Aside from that, there are really no pros at all, in truth.

    Cons

    This could take all day. From reliably not being paid on time, to senior management who doesn't trust the people he hires, and has nothing short of a fleeting attention span, it is an absolute nightmare to work for someone like this. Employees are basically peasants, field hands, to the senior management. Good luck finding real live human being employees who are happy to be there.

    Advice to Management

    Spend less time writing fictional reviews on glassdoor and go learn some people skills. You have a good business idea that you do not know how to implement. That, should be your focus, not attacking those employees who are trying to help you.

    I have been working at Cactus Sky Communications full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I'm a web developer at Cactus Sky. It's fast-paced, like breakneck speed, which isn't for everyone but if you are A.D.D like me it's fantastic. My co-workers are great (the ones I didn't like have moved along), YAY, because who likes getting stuck with people you don't work well with? The pay is good. For me the commute is fantastic and the people I report to are funny and easy to talk too. My creative input is considered...

    Cons

    I don't really have any, however, it is really fast paced with deadlines, sometimes this creates stress for people. If other people's stress bothers you, this would be a con.

    I have been working at Cactus Sky Communications

    Pros

    I have worked with Cactus Sky and Peter Martin on and off for several years. This is a great company to work for! They are always on top of new technology in order to offer nothing but the best service to their clients! Clients deserve to be treated like human beings and not just money and at Cactus Sky, that is the treatment they receive, great treatment and quality work! Peter is also a very stand up guy. He does what...

    Cons

    The only cons I would say there ever has been is that Peter has a big heart and some employees continue or have continued to push and see how far they can go and how much they can take advantage, in general, how much they could goof off and get paid for it. Those people generally cause disruption throughout the offices. It is hard for Peter to discipline or have to fire people. I would like to add to all of those people...

    Advice to Management

    Write people up then fire them if they do not correct their issues.

    I have been working at Cactus Sky Communications full-time

    Pros

    As the human resources director, I have worked closely with all of the employees regarding their personal issues. The company has extremely flexible policies related to working from home and taking time off. We have employed several parents including single mothers and have been more than accommodating to their schedules and specific needs. Employee with children have been allowed to adjust their time to coordinate...

    Cons

    Some trust issues have arisen over the past few months. Past employees have taken advantage of our flexible policies and not completed outside work and also stolen company property. We have done our best to cleanse the team of these bad apples and our current team is very trustworthy and close-knit.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to the management would be more careful with new hires. Maybe a probationary period before the issuance of a company laptop. Our flexible policies is one of the benefits about working here so I don't think those should be eliminated. Trust is integral to any office environment and we have a good level of trust now that we should maintain.

    I have been working at Cactus Sky Communications

    Pros

    I enjoy being challenged constantly. Everyday I learn something I can use in my daily affairs. I had basic tech qualifications and specifically what to expand my knowledge in this area. I enjoy the nights, weekends and holidays off.

    Cons

    Past employees have been challenging.

    I worked at Cactus Sky Communications full-time

    Pros

    I worked for Cactus Sky for quite some time. Working there was a great experience. These days, most employers do not care about their employees and only care about themselves by paying low wages but treating the employee like they owe you their lives just because they gave you a job. It is not that way at Cactus Sky. Peter Martin is a great business owner that really cares about his employees! The only reason I left is...

      I worked at Cactus Sky Communications

      Pros

      There are a lot of positive people will skill and talent that with proper leadership could be an effective and productive team.

      Cons

      The downfall is the owner has little no concern about the employees is simply self serving draining the resources of the company only to serve his ego and bloated idea of being above everyone around him. He is involved in legal battles and refuses to take responsibility for his shortcomings and the continually loss of clients.

      Advice to Management

      Humble yourself and realize that the success of your company is directly impacted by the morale that you build or destroy in regards to the people that work for you.

      It is unfortunate that you had such a negative experience with the leadership at Cactus Sky. The company has been in business for 14 years and my door is always open and would have appreciated it if you had taken the time to talk to me about you situation. What is more disappointing ...
