    Pros

    This is a very stable, family-owned company that has been in existence for over 50 years. As a result we have many relationships with most of the major vendors and other stakeholders in the IT industry. This gives us many resources to draw on when trying to help our customers solve their IT problems.

    Cons

    This company is still very manual and outdated in their internal processes.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to think outside the box.

    Little behind the times. If you have established client base and strength in networking and storage you will do well here. That being said, they are not equipped or forward thinking enough on Cloud

    Advice to Management

    Need to stay on top of the latest trends and not do what you have always done.

    You have many employees who are assets to the company, yet are not treated as such. Updates need to happen to attract, train and retain quality employees.
