    Pros

    Past history of loyalist strong base in financial sector good benefits nice people to work with. Sales training is a good foundation.

    Cons

    Old technology and slow to change and missing the boat. Still to much fat which needs trimming to function with the changing of times.

    Advice to Management

    New leadership needed and a need to listen to the changing IT market and adapt quicker. Not a solid reputation in industry.

    Pros

    The environment was nice. I worked in after hours and had my own cubicle.

    Cons

    Managers were more likely to delegate tasks to Level 2 to handle Level 1 agents. Changes are chaotic and without order when new Team Managers are appointed.

    Pros

    This employer is willing to hire a pretty broad group, even with less experience. They offer great experience and a fantastic opportunity to get a big variety of certifications.

    Cons

    This center is essentially a call center and that mentality permiates management. They have the tools to micromanage in very serious fashion and many of the mangers totally use that. Of course there are some really good managers but most are not.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees and ditch the point system. This is not elementary school and employees will tend to act as they are treated.

    I worked at Unisys full-time

    Pros

    Environments with no experience and no virtual infrastructure can easily purchase a single SKU and immediately get started. What arrives is a hardware/software combo that guarantees them a certain level of pre-tested service. For this group, much of the risk of implementation failure is transferred to the manufacturer in exchange for a slightly increased "integration" cost.

    Cons

    A Couple of the managers are very rude, extremely disrespectful and impolite and they don't give a dam about there employees. There reputation as being obnoxious is well known within the company and I don't know why the higher management doesn't do anything out it.

    Pros

    Great flexibility, talented co workers, 1/2time travel. Treated like a global executive!

    Cons

    When headcounts are reduced too often its jr managers & engineers getting hit hardest. Cronyism at the top.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to reward those with ambition and new initiatives. Treat the Engineers like brain surgeons, NOT subordinates.

    Pros

    The people are amazing. They truly try to do the best they can though understaffed, undertrained, and with obsolete tools.

    Cons

    The red tape, the resistance to change, the one trick mentality that everything is solved by headcount reductions, the lack of any training to field workers, the low wages to anyone below management... I can go on.

    Advice to Management

    Let the account team manage their slice of the business. Stop trying to fix contracts that were born broken thanks to the Sales Teams by punishing the field people. Stop trying to screw the customer once you get to the point where there is no more fat to trim.
