    Pros

    Competitive environment, fair management, and having the ability to keep up with the competition leads to a good place to work. Opportunities for advancement may increase once the economy rebounds and more companies increase CAPEX and OPEX for IT and Telephony equipment.

    Cons

    In the current landscape, there may not be too many opportunities to advance your career because of the business space that Black Box is in...the Telecom/IT industry has taken a big hit, but it is now starting to come around.

    Advice to Management

    You must keep in mind that this company is built around great people and that the mission to reduce cost is not always realized by cutting head count. It may be the easiest and quickest way, but not the best way...
