    I have been working at Dataprise full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Young, positive, company that encourages and applauds personal growth from paid personal training all the way to innovating and piloting a service offering on your own for potential company offerings. You can achieve what you want here, you just need to want it, the rest will be supported by all.

    Great happy hours, events, parties, to keep employees balanced. Dataprise understands you spend most of your time at work, so why not make it a good time?

    Cons

    Standard growing pains, standard company imperfections. Nothing that's unique to the company itself or it's employees, nor anything you will not see anywhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the free breakfast, and cold cuts we can make our sandwiches with for lunch. Saves us money and time.
    Can we get a 9 to 5 Hibachi Chef? Fire, jokes, and all? Thanks!

    Pros

    They will listen to your ideas and occasionally make changes that benefit employees rather than themselves. That is more than most companies will do.

    Cons

    The amount of billable hours required just to stay in good standing is 35+. That means anything you're doing for a client that isn't billable is basically coming out of your personal time. Frequent travel between client-sites means lunch can sometimes be tough to get for field engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop harassing employees who "only" billed 35 hours in a week. At your billable rate, you're making 4375/week when we average 35 hours which is ~20k/month. The average salary is probably around 6k/month giving you a 14k/month margin on each field engineer (-benefits). We're all smart guys, realize this, and resent emails from management complaining about billable hours when we're doing all we can. Management also seems blind to the fact that there is a lot of work that can't be billed to clients (paperwork, some documentation, and correcting the occasional mistake that we or another DP engineer has made).

    Pros

    Network Engineer (Consultant) position really exposes you to many different information systems and technologies. Very good company culture. Overall very good place to work.

    Cons

    Some internal systems *cough* documentation are a little ..... old school. CRM and Job systems, errr. Lots of travel, but that's the gig.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the documentation system.

    I worked at Dataprise full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -More freedom to work and learn
    -Pay for certifications
    -Benefits and compensation

    Cons

    -Too much traveling
    -Used to care much more for employee but then management took some bad decisions.

    Advice to Management

    I joined Dataprise in 2008 and stayed with them because I love the environment. They used to care much about their employees but then things changed during 2010. Some wrong people got into wrong positions and that caused many good engineers to leave the organization.

    My advice to management is to please invest in your employees as they are the one who represents Dataprise at client site. Also try to retain good engineers and good clients rather than only focusing on getting new business.

    Pros

    They are genuinely concerned about keeping the engineers happy. Their motto is if our engineers are happy than our client will be too. Consistent company outings, great benefits, and a team atmosphere. Overall pretty pleased. The company isnt just out for profits, but actually is focused on creating a productive, and positive atmospehere as well.

    Cons

    Commuting can take a toll if you are a remote engineer and have to travel long distances.
