    Pros

    No office to report to. There really are no other pros to write about.

    Cons

    Having to deal with the BS paperwork. Their vacation policy is a PTO type, earn it before you use it.

    Advice to Management

    Get your head out of your butt, and start running the company, don't tell the companies you contract with that "we will throw a warm body at it"!!!!!

    Pros

    NONE, they are a joke plan your career else where you will have a better chance at a good start.

    Cons

    Everything about he company poor SDM, poor upper management, lost of contracts-6 of them in a 3 month period, Unbelievable I think not research the history of the company and find out. And if your planning on a career here don't worked for the company for a better part of 10yrs before being let. They have NO loyalty to there employees of any kind. So beware of this company, look else where if your looking for a good career start in IT.

    I worked at Essintial Enterprise Solutions (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good people are a needle in a haystack in this company, but when you find them.. they are really really good people to work with. The man running the Field division is one of those good people.

    Cons

    FSR's are the red headed step children of the company. First for multiple pay cuts, mileage reimbursement reductions, crazy hours, on call shifts, and overall expectation for little to no money.

    Advice to Management

    Give the keys to Mr. Gelz...

    I have been working at Essintial Enterprise Solutions (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None. nada you want to avoid people who outright try to cheat you. They make you feel like a john in a hoe house.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations. Hidden scope of work until and after you bid and you get on site then you find out that the scope of work is completely different people that you are working with have no idea what they are doing because of a lack of information. This company uses sophisticated techniques to prevent you from obtain your objectives that way you cannot complete the contract. Then they withhold payment. The only way that you know that this is going to happen is after you have gone through it. Long hold time a half hour or more when working on projects then after you have turned your paper work they bring out a bunch of rules that they use to reduce payment. Avoid them if you can. Their unwritten philosophy is to never pay for the service they get

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the ghetto drug dealer mentality. It get's tiring you might get away with it for a while but the is a small industry made so by the internet people will take the time to find the man or woman behind the curtain and target you and every place you go. They will not forget.

    Pros

    Steady work, but it really doesn't pay enough.

    Cons

    Too little pay for so much work. No one can like on $30 per unit on pinpad swaps. Market rate in 28 states is a minimum of $75 per hour or per unit. Doesn't know who's in charge of a particular project and you have to call them persistently to make sure you get paid.
