Negative Atomsphere
SENIOR ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE – HEALTH CARE DIVISION (Former Employee) –  Lincoln, RIJanuary 15, 2018
It was a very negative atmosphere. Bad communication and high turnover. There was no team effort and you needed people from other departments to help in the process. The problem was everyone was so unhappy it lead to a very negative enviroment.

Service Delivery Manager (Former Employee) –  Hauppauge, NYDecember 6, 2017
Not a place you can feel secure. You always have to look over your shoulder. You get no help from your managers, you are on a island and they do not care.

Senior Technician (Former Employee) –  Hauppauge, NYNovember 16, 2016
I liked the company enough to work for them for a little over seven years. The only real problem I had was not being able to advance my career even after obtaining additional certifications/education.

Great place to work!
Confidential (Current Employee) –  Hauppauge, NYAugust 9, 2016
Family type atmosphere. Endless means of expanding skills - training is highly supported by all upper level managers. Senior staff are very supportive and operate with "open door" policy. Our tag line is "Right People, Right Results" and they mean it. They hire to fit the culture which promotes teamwork and seamless communication. In business since 1979 which speaks volumes in this day and age. Grounds are meticulously kept inside and out. Lots of corporate events and team building activities. Great place to work especially if you are just starting out in technology.
Pros
Too many to list
Cons
Health care is expensive
