Used to be great...can be that way again.
Systems Administrator (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – November 20, 2012
This review is based upon the Dallas corporate office. Employee experiences may vary greatly at the branch offices. Greatwide has seen more than its fair share of changes over the past 5 years. It entered bankruptcy protection, was purchased by a private equity firm, grew substantially through acquisitions, and has seen significant changes in its C-level leaders as it prepares to go public. All of those changes make for a tumultuous environment with no feeling of job security.
The best aspects of the company were the lack of corporate stuffiness and the IT funding. It was refreshing to work for a company that valued its IT infrastructure and funded it appropriately. I left shortly after a very talented CIO moved to another company. Thus, the funding for IT infrastructure may have since changed.
Unfortunately, the company doesn't move fast enough to remove bad employees. A handful of abusive employees have been detrimental to the company's culture and cost Greatwide quite a few talented employees.
