    I worked at Lee Technologies (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay was competitive with the industry. They gave good incentives. Management was fair. Free lunch once a week and free breakfast once a week.

    Cons

    Not enough room for growth if you are not in Sales or Marketing . You stay at the same level.

    I have been working at Lee Technologies (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great prerequisite training for operations, especially SOPs, MOPs, and EOPs authoring. Lee Technologies training is the epitome of what real managed services companies should be. They offered everything from Electrical Camera Thermography, to 3rd party certifications.

    Cons

    Regional managers are in the dark regarding local branch operations. The company, by acquisition, was swallowed up by the 800 lb. gorilla in the electrical/data center managed services industry. This affected the "Lee Tech" quality of craftsmanship.

    Advice to Management

    Let the CFMs run there shops so that QA does not affect the client / mgt. rapport. Professional relationships ensure reoccurring revenue, not stringent micro managing of local personnel.

    Pros

    Excellent resources with the people you will be working with. They have very articulate smart people working there who are always willing to help you out.

    Cons

    Management changes have created a shift in the primary focus of the business since being purchased by Schnider Electric. They are more focused on sales then developing relationships and helping their project managers out

    I worked at Lee Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked with great people who have remained friends after my time at the company was over.
    Real commitment to helping in the community, unlike the lip service that seems to be common in other companies.

    Cons

    Schneider.
    Upward mobility was difficult. This may have been exacerbated by a tendency to hire upper level employees when in-house people could have been given a chance.

    Advice to Management

    Don't get completely "Schneider-ized" and lose all great environment that was built during the John Lee years.

    I worked at Lee Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Benefits after Schneider buy out were quite good. Easy enough company to get on with and get your foot in the technology world.

    Cons

    Upper management for Lee is old, outdated, and uninvolved. Most of the good people have left (including me), with none to take their place. Result is people stretched to thinly and the consequences are shotty attention to detail and a stressful environment. Very much on its way out. I'll be shocked if Schneider gets anything going in the other direction. Also, their pay was horrendous when I worked there. Down right insulting. Not sure if this is system wide, or site specific. I made a lateral move to another company and experienced a huge bump in pay. Good riddance.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people what they are worth or someone else will. Stand up for the values that made this company grow or lay down and die with the host of other companies in the tech world.
