    I have been working at Xantrion full-time

    Pros

    Everyone gets 17 days of PTO+ holidays to start, great healthcare and 401k, work life balance, diverse environments with a lot of learning opportunities, flexible work from home. Good customers, and the biggest one is great coworkers. A lot of hardworking people supporting businesses that make a difference in the world.

    Cons

    It is still an MSP. Too much of your time will be dealing with problem customers, software that we should never be supporting, and trying to find information that was never recorded. But that is what they pay us for.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch caliper and take more chances with new hires.

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

    Pros

    Never a shortage of challenging work. My technical skills are constantly improving because I am building upon the knowledge that I had when I was first hired over two years ago.

    Cons

    Can go long periods of time without seeing some of my fellow co-workers, as consultants often work onsite with clients.

    Advice to Management

    Like how we are having more team events lately, hope that we can continue to do this.

    I have been working at Xantrion full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Employees are super knowledgeable. Fast pace environment. Strong sense of comradery. Comfortable work environment. Lots of room to grow within the company. Free lunch every week.

    Cons

    Starting out can be very overwhelming but the company provides a budget for each individual employee to become better.

    You can't drink beer on the clock.

    You can't wear sweats to work.

    Not enough female techs!

    Advice to Management

    Tom and Anne are great and very approachable. Tom sits in at the meetings and it's not intimidating at all. He makes really good contributions to the discussion and makes meetings very constructive and meaningful.

    I have been working at Xantrion full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have worked at Xantrion for 8 years now and couldn't be happier with this company. There is much room to grow, as they are willing and encourage us to move up the ladder to the various positions. I started off at the help desk level and eventually worked my way to quoting and purchasing.

    The management is very level headed and takes everything into consideration before acting. Xantrion treats their employees very well and are very accommodating.

    The employees that are hired and brought on tend to excel due to the hiring process. The hiring process is more extensive than most companies, but that is a good thing as Xantrion will not just hire anyone. Xantrion looks for technologically competent, quality people who can and are willing to work with clients on a day to day basis.

    Cons

    In my personal opinion, there aren't many cons to working at Xantrion. The only complaint would be that there is much work to be done and not enough manpower. That can be considered a good thing as Xantrion is always looking for quality employees.

    Excellent support from management and the team. Very knowledgable crew that is both supportive and helps further your knowledge and career.

    Sometimes after-hours work is required, but this is IT so that comes with the territory!

    I worked at Xantrion (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was recruited my last quarter in college and worked part-time. Upon graduation, I was immediately offered a full-time position after a limited 2 full weeks of work. With three other offers on my plate, Xantrion was the clear winner because they recognized hard work in such a short period of time.

    Management - Absolutely amazing, they were always level-headed and backed what they said with data. I was promoted twice in the firm, which meant a change in managers too - both of which are some of the best managers I've ever worked with. The company founders are also incredibly intelligent and extremely business savvy.

    Work - This is the best place to be if you're trying to start or progress your IT career. The company is very transparent both financially and throughout the organization.

    Team - I loved my colleagues and I still keep in touch with many of them today. It's highly-collaborative and someone is always willing to lend a hand.

    Benefits - It's one of the few companies that provide 100% medical, dental, and vision coverage. I recalled there were 17 days of PTO and also 5 days to study towards an exam. In total, that's about 22 days a year (OVER A MONTH!). You get more through seniority too. I recalled some team members were forced on PTO because they just rather work.

    Overall, if you're in IT and looking for a place that recognizes hard work and appreciates you, come to Xantrion. If you're lazy and hope to fall through the cracks, look somewhere else.

    Cons

    More off sites with the team would have been nice, but as a private business that needs to be profitable, it makes sense.
