    I have been working at ValCom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I honestly can't think of many reasons to work here. It's okay for temporary work while you search for somewhere else. The three day weekends are nice.

    Cons

    Very little opportunity for advancement based on merit. Management doesn't seem to like those who are trying to advance within the company. Nobody seems to know what in the world is going on when it comes to production.

    Advice to Management

    Come out of your office once in a while and recognize the people going above and beyond for you. If management is only seen scolding employees then distrust is created between management and production workers.

    I worked at ValCom full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Had numerous training sessions with manufacturers like IBM, Compaq, HP and NEC.

    Cons

    Was part of a company wide cut-back. Why they let me go never made sense.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the people working on the inside who help support all of your accounts.
