    I have been working at inhouseIT full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The technicians are mostly good natured and willing to help. There is a great opportunity here with the technology available. I can see how you can learn a variety of systems and get very good very quickly. This place has such great potential I am going to give it 4 out of 5 starts for that fact alone. Your skills have to improve and improve quickly here. It’s a great place to be multi-tasking and think on your feet.

    Cons

    If you know what you are doing, stay away from inhouseIT. I know they are taking advantage of me with my low pay but I hope to gain the experience and move on soon. If, like me, you are desperate for that first IT job, then I suppose we must endure the daily humiliation inhouseIT generously provides. For some reason unknown to me, management is constantly lying. All you need to do is talk to anyone else and the lies become...

    Advice to Management

    Make the company more about the staff and less about yourself and profits. Maybe create a training budget and allow for more time off. It is clear you want as many billable hours as possible, but my home life is going to struggle if I choose to stay. You should have such a great organization I want to stay. As of right now, I do not want to be there, and it is all your fault management.

    I worked at inhouseIT full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    With hundreds of unique environments to support you get your hands dirty right way and are challenged pretty much everyday - this keeps the mind sharp and experience gain quick. It is a great place to start your career as you can gain a lot of knowledge very quickly and are always supported by more knowledgable guys (Chuck is awesome and always willing to help). Management is great as well, at least at the VP level -...

    Cons

    The fact that they have to monetize time can become a little stressful for employees but that is understood and explained at the very beginning. Management is really easy going so that helps.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and treat your mgmt team well (Bob, Garret and Brad).

    I worked at inhouseIT

    Pros

    The team here is great with mostly young and bright engineers. It's a great place to work for if you are green in IT and want to learn the basics. The engineering team works well together and are willing to help you at anytime of the day.

    Cons

    This is not a good place for you to advance further if you have years of experience in IT. If you want to advance and continue to learn new technologies, then forget it. You won't see much of that here. This is one of the reasons I see many great engineers leaving the company to find room for advancement somewhere else. The turn over rate here is the highest I have ever seen anywhere else in my entire IT career.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to save a penny up front while letting a dollar goes out the back. Invest in your people and they will invest in your company. It's easier to retain existing employees than to constantly hiring new ones. It's bad for business and customers are not happy when new replacements keep showing up onsite. Also, stop trying to change too many wheels on the bus at once. There is something called change control and...

    Pros

    Excellent culture, management is a pleasure to work for. The staff is fill of friendly and helpful individuals, there is room for growth, good benefits that start at the beginning of the following month after being hired (even if hired on the 31st), and they have really flexible schedules. Great place to work with plenty of opportunity!

    Cons

    Not much to complain about so far except there is no 401k matching benefit.

    Advice to Management

    401k plans might be improved.

    I worked at inhouseIT full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This is a great place to work if you're getting your start in IT and want to learn various technologies. The company works with several small to medium businesses and this exposes you to different things that you would not see if you only worked at one company. The engineers you also work with are a great team and will provide help and support if you ever get stuck on troubleshooting.

    Cons

    Lack of a career path within the company if you start at helpdesk and want to work your way up to a field engineer or project engineer.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a career path for IT staff.
