    Don't say to anyone who is right or wrong, just do your work.

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

    Pros

    Large player in the industry therefore opportunities will not be missing to move or learn some new technologies

    Cons

    working for an outsourcing company where everyone is scared of their own shadows. It is a company money driven where you will be just a number.Results or the number of hours you work will not count much if economically they have to cut the fat...

    Advice to Management

    Confidence and trust to your employee will go a long way for everybody to achieve success

    Pros

    Multiple locations with many clients to work with

    Cons

    Too much of a money grab from clients not shared with staff only with Senior Management.

    Share more with the staff who do all the work.

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

    Pros

    The people at the work sites have a lot of knowledge. It is a good place to learn a lot.

    Cons

    This company rarely gives raises. I have been at Compucom for 4 years without one and everyone I have talked to has had the same experience. Most say that the only way to make more money is to get experience here then go somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Stop telling employees that the company is having a hard time, so no raises. Then a week later post the company profits for the last quarter as an outstanding quarter with profits up xx million.

    I have been working at CompuCom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Clients offer opportunity to work in high tech environments

    Cons

    Corporate culture is dismal and completely detached from the reality of the associates. Doomed to fail unless radical course corrections are made.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your associates and first level managers say without dismissing them. They are what makes the company succeed.

    I have been working at CompuCom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Compucom may be an okay place to start if you are just out of school... if you are desperate

    Cons

    Compucom has no room for growth, no pay raises in 5+ years. Management is abusive and / or incompetent. They always react putting out fires, never thinking ahead. Compensation is low end of the scale for the roles you are asked to perform. You can change roles but your title is always the same and, it is a "lateral move" with no changes in salary but always more work. I have not had a review in the 5+ years I have worked here. This place is a revolving door.

    Advice to Management

    Please recognize good people, and reward them. Tell the truth, and be respectful of your employees, as you would have them be of you.
