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

    Pros

    Good local managers. Good environment. Plenty of training.

    Cons

    Pay could have been more competitive. Local office had too many highly skilled engineers and couldn't keep them all busy with challenging work (got boring quickly). They've lost some of that Presidio (Coleman) shine that made them stand out as a true engineering firm. Now, instead of the focus being on the top solution, it's on the top margins.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get back to focusing on the best solution, not just the best margin. Otherwise, you're no better than your competition.

    Pros

    A well known and established company.

    Cons

    Bad interview process and flow. They will pump you up like it's going great and ask you fill out their application. Then, you wait but they never status you about the position. An email saying we thank you for your time would have been just fine..kinda of like what good companies do.

    Advice to Management

    Work on your interview processes and follow-up with candidates so they don't waste time.

    I have been working at Presidio full-time

    Pros

    Good group of intelligent people, access to a plethora of resources, and partnerships with vendors are an integral part of the business.

    Cons

    Internal systems and processes take some time to get use to, training during the onboarding phase could stand to be better tailored to each individual role.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more energy on employee integration as they join the organization, it will pay off as they will get into a flow state much faster and help begin producing.

    I worked at Presidio full-time

    Pros

    Decent salary and bonuses. Good technical talent.

    Cons

    Once the company went public and revealed its $2.1 billion debt (now $2.3 billion), it was obvious that the company was doing very poorly. Mood was very negative.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with new candidates about company prospects - don't mislead anybody. Be honest with current employees about company prospects.

    I worked at Presidio full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked at small VAR that was acquired by Presidio in 2005 and watched it grow from there. Great sales and engineering.

    Cons

    Very focused on the bottom line while paying less and less attention to what got them to this point, their people. Set up as regional fiefdoms, which was fine at the beginning but has outlived its usefulness.

    Advice to Management

    Consolidate into one sales and engineering team. The regional model worked up to a point but it has become detrimental.

    Nothing comes to mind.
