    I have been working at Graphnet full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Office
    Friendly People
    Quiet and Relaxed
    Fantastic Location
    Compensation
    Work Life Balance is Great

    Cons

    often small support network ( small company)
    potential issues from copetition

    Advice to Management

    There is a need to diversify and restructure the product portfolio in a more marketable way.
    Bread and butter clients should only be relied upon until a point.

    Pros

    None, poor training, Sales and I.T. on different planet.

    Cons

    Poor working environment, Management a joke, no clarity, company in monetary distress. Employees do not speak to each other, hostile place. Expenses paid in 45 days, no markting, left after few weeks saw no growth or possibility, no confidence.

    Advice to Management

    Sell

    I worked at Graphnet full-time

    Pros

    It was a nice office space.

    Cons

    15 years later I see this company is still chasing the fax industry. You guys were clueless about progress back then and certainly you are now. The 401K program was so poorly ran that the investment company called me after they closed the regional office to get me to move my money.

    Advice to Management

    RETIRE. All 3 C level executives should have 15 years ago. You killed all your regional offices with no tech progress in your business portfolio. I am amazed the company is still in business now. Who uses Fax and Telex these days?

    I worked at Graphnet full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing really... all I can think of is a steady paycheck and free supplies

    Cons

    All C-levels have no idea of what they are doing. Dinosaur product that they have not developed so sales are in a steady decline. Soon will be out of business

    Advice to Management

    Stop wasting your time and shut the company down... Unless a miracle happens and you can understand the industry yo uare in.

    Pros

    Great fellow workers and I am not a disgruntled ex-employee. By Graphnet letting me go, they have improved my life

    Cons

    Management is very insecure. Salaries paid late, at times 3-4 days, cash flow very tight due poor management & utilizing it as piggybank. Employees not treated very well, no benefits at all. Medical coverage is just okay. Employees do not feel very secure. Working environment not very good. No investment back into firm. CTO extremely crude and antagonistic. No future for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your Employees with dignity and not as paid peons, arrogance of Management shows daily in environment.

    I worked at Graphnet full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great coworkers and interesting equipment that ranges from the oldest machines you can find to the newest servers on the market. You will get a wide range of experience giving you the choice to enter many different area in this field including Telecom, System Administration, Help Desk or Networking. My Boss and coworkers were some of the best I have ever worked with and the low stress environment is very cool especially if you are going to school. This isn't one of those places where you walk in the door and you have to jump into the work (unless something is going on). Getting settled in and having your coffee and breakfast in the morning is no problem here.

    Cons

    The hours are not on a set schedule. You will work 1st, 2nd and 3rd shift (one weekend) most likely. When someone takes a vacation or takes off everyone's shift changes because they have just enough staff to cover the shift. I hear that the CEO brought back an old employee that is making peoples jobs uncomfortable and everyone is unhappy about this change.

    Advice to Management

    Try to over staff so people can be on set schedules.
