    Options to grow from current position. Little to no micro managing.

    Cons

    Limited support staffing. Work in progress though.

    Training, training and training. Helpful to new employees to have a seasoned employee in the same position shadowing for a few weeks before kicking them out of the nest.

    Pros

    There are many different technologies that you work with which offer daily challenges.

    Customer growth has grown beyond what employees can handle.
    The 'on-call' is more like a work shift with very limited compensation.
    Management goes after profit without considering the effect on employees.
    Movement outside customer support is shunned by management.
    Advancement opportunities are very limited.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the suggestion from your employees.
    Provide advancement opportunities
