    I have been working at MicroTek full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Casual work environment. Company culture is very friendly. Work/life balance is important and is demonstrated from top -- down. CEO and executive team are accessible to all in organization. Visionary president who values sales and marketing!

    Cons

    Mid to small organization, so there is not a lot of growth potential here. There is some stagnant thinking here, which sometimes thwarts growth initiatives. A little old-school in some areas.

    I have been working at MicroTek (More than a year)

    Pros

    MicroTek office is clean and uncluttered. Located in a beautiful professional building with indoor parking garage.

    Cons

    Management team's are not held accountable by the President, VP or CEO. They do not continue to grow professionally and it shows in their management styles. The company has a lot of great potential, but need visionaries to lead the teams to achieve greater success.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to reinvent yourselves. Being in a managerial role for years is no excuse to stop learning. With how quickly the world of business has changed, it's more important now than ever.

    Pros

    The Cookies, Free Lunch, and snacks.

    Cons

    Management does not listen, especially the Regional Managers. They show clear favoritism towards certain employees. Zero opportunities for advancement or training, unless you're friends with management. Do not work here unless you're desperate

    Advice to Management

    Stop showing favoritism. Learn from your employees. They're the ones interacting with the customers.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Easy to ask for a day off.

    Cons

    No paid time off, vacation, or benefits. Management does not set good examples for employees and instead works good employees to death without following through with promises given.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your word. Give raises when promised and don't just work your good employees to death with no compensation. Lead by example not by micro-managing.

    Pros

    MicroTek is an organization dedicated to customer service, growth, and their employees. 90% of the co-workers there are positive, outgoing, and great to work with. The executive team is dedicated to keeping the company a place where people want to excel and take care of the customers.

    Cons

    When business softened in the 08-09 economy drop, the management team was forced to cut staffing. They made some hard decisions and some bad decisions. They let go the wrong players and kept some that aren't as infomed about the business and the aren't as concerned about the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at the people you let go and how you doing now. Consider bringing back some of your managers.
