    "Great people to work with but questionable management decisions"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Info-Tech Research Group full-time

    Pros

    -One of the friendliest and smartest people I've worked with
    -Office has cool perks

    Cons

    -More like a call center (120 dials to sometimes 200) and prefers to be kept this way. All about short term rather than long term relationship building
    -No real process or strategy in tackling accounts (example --strategy from our management. Here's your region. Find all the accounts within that look promising, cold call 120 dials a day minimum using a script about how many members we have and how fast we're growing instead of talking about real business value we can help drive. Look at Info-tech employee linkedin pages and you will have a good idea how the call script will look like)
    -Work Environment. Micro-managing 24/7. Execs are on salesforce dashboard more than sharing strategies to enable their employees
    -Product is targeted towards small/medium businesses that have limited understanding of IT

    I have been working at Info-Tech Research Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've only been at McLean & Company (a division of Info-Tech but essentially the same company) for just over a month now, but it seems like an amazing place to be.
    Pros:
    -Uncapped earning potential with a generous commission structure (I don't know if I'm even allowed to share it here)
    -Competitive base salary
    -New London location
    -Games room with billiards, foosball, and other arcade games as well as PS4, leather lounge chairs, etc.
    -Bar that's open to all employees, even open to family and friends on weekends/evenings within reason
    -Amazing culture
    -Speaking for my own team, my director is extremely supportive and understanding and the same goes for my team. They're always available to help out and teach me when necessary
    -Gym in the basement
    -Company events
    -Rooftop patio to be added soon
    -Gas stove in games room
    -Coffee machine from Van Houte with a variety of options including Espresso, hot chocolate, etc
    -Free fruit every day

    Cons

    As it's only been a month so far, I don't have many cons to mention as I'm still in the honeymoon phase.
    They are growing fairly quickly and things can sometimes get lost in the shuffle.

    Advice to Management

    None as of yet.
