    Pros

    Non executive staff is great. Great benefits

    Cons

    Executive management does not listen to employees and provide no leadership or inspiration. CEO is awful.

    The board should remove the CEO and find an actual leader.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, funky/modern office, health initiatives, annual bonus, nice people, flexible hours (work from home 2 days a week for some), generous PTO and holidays, free coffee/tea/fruit/snacks/vegetables with dip/leftovers, casual dress

    Cons

    Executive management (notice the use of managment and not leadership here) is in need of a serious overall! There is a lack of a service leadership type atmosphere and feeling of "open-door" policy. Play by the rules and be a "yes man" for advancement opportunities. Lots of people taking credit and receiving praise for your own ideas, and do as I say not as I do.

    Dramatic, unequal pay across gender and racial lines that overrides considerable experience, skills and education. There is never any consideration of resources and bandwidth when taking on an abundance of new company initiatives - which leads to non-acknowledged 50+ hour work weeks (it is supposed to be 35), stress, and building frustration among the real do-ers.

    No clear strategic direction or goals based on facts, data and trends (i.e., using the word "strategic" in front of a goal or plan does not make it strategic).

    Advice to Management

    Listen, acknowledge, appreciate, know your own managment limitations, speak up, be brave, let go of EGO!

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

    Pros

    While working at CompTIA. I worked from a remote office. At the HQ, I had great peers and supervisors.

    I've never seen such respect and dedication for work/life balance. Outside of the regular benefits, they offered many benefits that are not common (Pay for home ISP, cell phone, Costco membership, etc.).

    Cons

    At the remote office, many of the staff did not respect administrative staff. They were often rude and impatient with them. They rarely were self-help.

    Advice to Management

    n/a

    I have been working at Comptia full-time

    Pros

    The perks are unmatched. 25 days of PTO to start each year (plus you can carry-over days), summer hours, casual dress, surprise lunches, work from home, company events, amazing 401K matching. The list goes on.

    Cons

    If you live in the city, the drive out to Downers Grove can get annoying :)

    Pros

    They really care about their employees and do everything to make sure you know you're part of the organization's family.

    Cons

    Sometimes it was difficult to gauge what type of commitment the CEO had to certain issues that required his face time.

    Advice to Management

    The more the CEO gets involved with just interacting with clients and important POCs, the better it will be for the organizations' name recognition within DC and on Capitol Hill.
