    Pros

    Fusionstorm offers a culture that promotes work and life balance with a blend of technology and entrepreneurship that is both challenging and rewarding

    Cons

    Like most small companies you have to stand on your own two feet. There is no hiding within the organization.

    Pros

    Great employees, little supervision letting you make your own way. Everyone is full throttle all the time. Great environment to learn in.

    Cons

    Mediocre management, Invisible Executives. No real room for advancement without being in the "inner Circle"

    Advice to Management

    Understand your market better and show the sales team real numbers for cost of services instead of hopes and dreams of what you want to achieve. Deal in reality. stop over promising and hoping to properly deliver.

    I worked at FusionStorm full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    FusionStorm was an excellent employer during my 2 year tenure with them. My decision to leave the company was entirely personal and hopefully only temporary. The people at FusionStorm are what made my experience so successful. I enjoyed working with everyone, from the highly competent engineering staff to the thorough and accommodating HR department. The company does an exceptional job of empowering the individual and building a cohesive team culture. Self starters really excel in this position and FusionStorm provides all the necessary tools and resources to be successful. The majority of employees are engineers or hold technical positions providing ample resources for sales people to win clients. It is easy to differentiate FusionStorm from their competitors based on their world class Integration Center, global logistics and most of all the talent of their employees. I would highly recommend working for this company.

    Cons

    Base salaries could be more competitive but easily made up in commission opportunities.

    I worked at FusionStorm (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've seen a lot of great folks who worked for FS in the past.

    Cons

    Most of these good folks gone for a reason. The management culture is questionable not to say more. It is pretty common for the mid-level management to blame the engineers for the failures that were "pre-programmed" during pre-sales cycle by setting unrealistic expectations with the customer. I saw at least two occations when good folks were fired for no fault of their own just to cover the screw-up of the management or sales. Kind of to show to the customer that "management team is fixing the problem".

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to your employees.

    I have been working at FusionStorm full-time

    Pros

    Everyday presents an opportunity to push myself harder than I've ever pushed before.

    I'm very lucky to work with a team of men and women who embody values of integrity, work ethic, accountability and honesty.

    There's no shortage of talent or inspiration in the New York office and you couldn't find someone rooting against your success even if you tried.

    There are a couple exceptionally well rounded & successful individuals who for lack of a better term, are superb role models, this perhaps is what I'm most grateful for.

    I developed strong working relationships that have since turned into even better friendships, I'm equally thankful for the friendships made while working at Fusionstorm.

    Cons

    I have to write something here or glass-door wont submit my review, there are no longer any cons of working at fusionstorm.
    If you love technology, want to build your own business, enjoy working in a volatile and competitive market place and have super-thick skin you'll love it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    You are able to work from home. Although you work extremely long hours, the hours are flexible.

    Cons

    Still functions as a start up with regards to staffing and tools. A lot of manual and redundant processes. Work life balance is not encouraged. A lot of internal teams fighting causing the company to lose focus on what is actually important, your customers.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in a consulting firm to help weed out the dead weight from VP down.
