    Pros

    Great place to work for if you are apart of the nepotism that is running in the company.

    Cons

    The VP's and Upper-Management are clueless and pass all the blam to the employees. They won't hire anyone that is not related to a family member or knows someone in the company. They don't hire african american workers. Pay is well below the industry standard and you have to do 5 peoples jobs so they can save money instead of hiring people.

    Advice to Management

    Actually care a little bit and hiring people under 40. Stop blaming your employees and start training employees

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

    Pros

    Great experience and able to get hands on with many different types of platforms. Able to work overtime and actually get paid for it.

    Cons

    Not a company one can trust. There is a lot of back stabbing and one can not trust what other employees will say. Management will fire you just to save themselves and not defend you one bit when issues arise. They expect you to work at a high level, but also expect you to run a virus scan on systems for customers all day.

    Advice to Management

    Separate the high level technicians from the day to day workstation technicians. Be honest, not jealous and have a conscious when it comes with treating employees with respect and honesty.

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

    Pros

    Good hands on experience, somewhat tight knit employee base, A few nice company events during the year.

    Cons

    Shady practices, laughable compensation, Health insurance although provided is very expensive especially if you have a family. I am single and did not have to pay that much toward mine ~100 a paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take the Holiday or day before the holiday and leave the rest of the company in the dust. Get serious about compensation or you will find yourselves unable to hold on to good talent especially with the job market on the upswing.

    Pros

    Microstrategies is a fantastic company with real heart. The people are smart and friendly, and the turnover rate is very low. Leadership does a great job motivating employees, and the compensation packages are very competitive.

    Cons

    Work flow might benefit from some operational streamlining. Perhaps increased recognition for exceptional performance. Nothing too drastic, the company does a good job keep the culture open and innovative

    Advice to Management

    More autonomy might be a good way to increase productivity. Letting employees how to decide to handle their projects would help up engagement

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

    Pros

    Micro is a very versatile company and an industry leader in the IT consulting market. They offer many opportunities for employees to learn and build on their skill sets and if you are willing to put in the hours you can excel. The pay and benefits are fair and unlike many companies, if you work long hours and on weekends, you can get additional pay if you meet your monthly billing goals.

    Cons

    The biggest con I had was with the middle management teams. There seems to be a loss of vision from the top down when it comes to how they manage and treat people. In many cases I witnessed some managers berate lower level employees in front of an entire department. In addition they tend to play favorites and will even let hard working talented people go without reason if the egos of the managers are threatened.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize when you have truly hard working talented people who actually want to help the company grow and succeed. And do all you can to retain and reward such people instead of catering to the middle managers who only care about themselves.
