    Pros

    The fridge keeps your lunch cold

    Cons

    Do twice the work for zero recognition and no monetary bonus. Watch them let all the good people go who dare speak up about maybe hiring extra help. Watch upper management receive major bonuses for enforcing “lean practices”

    I worked at DATA Communications Management full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Full company paid ERP Training

    Cons

    Vicious environment, less than professional sales executives and constant disorganization. If you are someone who values your career, has an education and the credentials to manage a project and has a desire to learn the industry; do not waste your time. You will endure constant frustrations and miscommunications as your moral diminishes. All your suggestions to improve customer relations and internal processes and reduce discrepancies gets dismissed and ignored. Do not waste your education on this company - managers are promoted without having business communication skills and can barely articulate industry terminology or explain the project phases (within project management terms) to the client.

    Pros

    Pay is ok. Just ok.

    Cons

    Used to be a good place to work but now not so much. Has become a toxic work environment. Steady decrease in work for the past 15 years. Upper management has no clue what they are doing. Seems all they care about is lining their pockets. Their idea of problem solving is axing personnel and shuffling staff. Also, ERP was supposed to be a smooth transition, but it is disastrous. Management fills us with lies and most believe them but personally i think they are just biding time before the inevitable happens... the company goes belly up or is bought out for pennies on the dollar.

    Pros

    Coworkers and managers are good people and good to work with.

    Cons

    Over worked. When new erp system (complete failure) was brought in people worked evenings and weekends for free and management then terminated 10% of the workforce as thanks and then posted contract positions to replace the workers for less money. Greg Cochrane is a snake that can't be trusted, everything he says and does is a lie meant to line his own pockets. He's driven multiple companies to bankruptcy and stolen millions from suppliers over the years. Just look at the share price since he became involved with the company.
