I worked at New York Internet full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Nothing worth mentioning really. They mostly hire immigrants who cannot find another job.If this is your first job in IT you can pick up on some of the basic knowledge but you should leave after your first year.

Cons

Pay is very low. You should expect to earn $14-16/hr. No overtime. Management and Human Resources doesn't care about their staff. You will be dealing with hardware replacement for the most part, very little exposure to system administration. Your manager will be absent 4 days out the week, and when he's there you won't hear much from him.
Don't expect a decent raise. Bonuses are not worth waiting for either. HR does their best each year to pick the worst (cheapest) benefit plan. For the most part you'll be doing work similar to a janitor.

You can expect to throw out trash, wipe coffee off of the floor, exterminate stink bugs, wash floors, etc. Also, during summer, their cooling system doesn't work, so they rotate people to spray water out of a hose onto their A/Cs till the temperatures cool down.

Like I said, there's very little room to learn anything to do with your field.

I will invite more ex coworkers to give a review as well. Thank you glassdoor for letting us share!

Advice to Management

None. That's how they run the company and that's how they remain profitable.

    I have been working at New York Internet full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best first IT gig anybody could ask for. Ample resources to teach yourself anything, close relationships between all departments, and always a willingness to try new approaches. There is enough free time between the occasional fire to go from n00b to admin in no time if you have the interest to do so.

    Cons

    Technical department needs a more standards-based approach for version-controlled code, configuration management, deployment strategies, etc. These are slowly being adopted, but are not quite there yet.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring people who are, first and foremost, fundamentally enthusiastic about all aspects of computing and who wear it on their sleeves.
