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

    Pros

    - Business units are autonomous. It doesn't suffer from large organisation politics like others do.
    - Good culture of letting you try out technologies.
    - Health insurance.

    Cons

    Datacom makes it's money from contracting you out to the clients. So they don't care if you are twiddling your thumbs at the client site, they're still getting paid.

    Good if that's what you're looking for, but a boring and stiffling otherwise.

    The tech they're using is a bit old, and the client's request.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, for what the business model is - I think you're doing alright.
