Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

entrepreneurial environment, some comraderie and some nice people. Fair policies and benefits. Compensation was always on the lighter side.

Cons

Highly political environment where it's survival of the fittest, lots of backstabbing. Lack of long term vision and delegation of responsibilities to experts. Unrealistic expectations of deadlines. lack of structure and mentorship

Advice to Management

Hire professionals, not only friends. Then take their advice.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Procom as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    nothing at all they suck

    Cons

    very poor management, poor communication. they try to screw you over at every opportunity they get. during the 3rd week of work I was expecting a paycheque for 2 weeks but no they only have me 1 week and said this was policy .. what a bunch of BS

    submitted banking details 2 months ago for direct deposit and received a reply saying it was received. payday came and I never got paid. upon contacting them they said they mailed a cheque. and again none of this was communicated to me until I had to call them and chase them down for answers
