    I worked at Holt of California as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This was my first job, and they were nice to show me the ropes and helped me get into an internal IT helpdesk role. There were opportunities to advance in IT system administration
    Good chance to learn windows server administration and customer service

    Cons

    Not the most cutting edge technology, some practices seemed outdated
    some limitation so the CAT hardware we work on limits ability to use newer IT technologies

    Advice to Management

    Be open to new technologies and see what can be done to change the technologies needed to maintain the CAT vehicles
