Pros

This is a decent place for someone fresh out of school looking for a first career. In the IT department, you can move up to an Engineering-level position pretty quickly if you work hard.

The people here are mostly nice and the company does a pretty good job of holding social events where you can meet people and make friends. Lots of young people working here, so that's a plus too, if you're young as well.

Cons

Once you get a little bit of experience there, its time to get out and find a new job. They don't do a good job of training and developing their Engineering-level IT personnel. Training budget is non-existent.

Compensation is TERRIBLE. I cannot stress that enough. You get really pitiful raises, even if you are promoted time and time again (as I have been). I'd say for an Engineer-level IT employee, compensation is about 40-50% below the industry average.

IT management is competent and reasonable, but upper-management demands cost reductions at any price. Be prepared to work with outdated, second-rate technology.

Advice to Management

Take care of your people better. Your company is constantly losing its most talented people because they're that are quickest to realize how poorly they are being treated/compensated.

    -Very Professional Work Atmosphere
    -You work with top of the line products in your industry which makes your job easier as selling the best beats pitching inferior products.

    -Low pay even for internship standards and high employee turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing in terms of managing and training people as you guys do a great job with that. Although if you wish to retain more talent you should probably raise your salaries.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    They have a cafeteria and fitness center. Scheduling time off was not a hassle. For part timers, it was a good way to have a set schedule.

    Cons

    No one walks around with a smile on their face. It is simply a depressing place to work. There is no reason to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Some advice I can give is definitely try to make it possible to encourage employees to want to do a good job. Employees need to be taken care of better.
