I worked at Scout Technology Guides full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Get your feet wet or take the plunge into diverse technologies with opportunities to learn and grow. Scout encourages collaboration, there are no silos of knowledge and everyone is willing and passionate to learn and help. IT can be a high stress environment but the leadership team and company making coming to work feel like coming home.

Cons

Scout is poised to grow rapidly, you'll need to learn diverse customer base and be willing to own complex problems. If not for personal reasons if still be here.

Advice to Management

Keep the momentum, I'm confident that if not already, Scout will be the de facto MSP for the Fraser Valley - if not Lower Mainland.
Continue to foster the culture of the company and the inward growth as much as external.

    Pros

    The staff and company culture at Scout are second to none. They truly function as a unified team, there help each other and get their jobs done day in and day out. Management is amazing and the job comes with some great perks.

    Cons

    This is a fast paced, growing MSP with some big clients so you need to know how to work hard and take ownership. I don't have a lot of negative things to say because I had to move away for personal reasons - otherwise I would not have left this job.

    Advice to Management

    The care that the management team puts into the company and staff are what sets you apart from all the other MSPs - don't lose site of that and you'll always be doing great.

    Pros

    Awesome team, awesome technology stack, exciting client base, fast paced work environment. "Drink from a firehose" is the best way to put it, but there's no better way to learn and excel in the field than stepping into the MSP space at the pace Scout operates. Every day is a new challenge, and there's never any shortage of laughter or hilarity. Management is extremely considerate of family obligations and personal time; the company is growing and there's room to move up; lot's of side benefits like camping trips and LAN parties and staff you actually want to hang out with after work; Matt (the CEO) is servant hearted and truly drives the company to be the best both in the workplace and in the community (this is rare.) Can't say enough good about working at Scout.

    Cons

    It's a demanding and sometimes high-stress environment and you will be expected to be the best, or at least grow and adapt into the best, so bring your A game and expect some very high standards. The more senior roles will require quite a bit of overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing - it is obviously working :)
