Pros: knowledgeable staff, great working hours
Cons: management is kind of lacking, too many different departments that accomlsi the same tasks, over zealous supervisors
This job has given me a diverse out look on the IT field. My days are filled with network modifications, redesigns, and regular day to day administrative duties. My co workers are quite the characters! They each bring their own unique skill sets to the table and make the operation networks division the versatile, problem solving, hard charging machine it is today. The hardest part of this job is definitely the stress of immediate changes. Sometimes, a switch fails or a route misbehaves and as an admin, it is our job to find the right switch, configure, configure the routing protocol, etc. And all of this must be done in a span of hours at times! I've (we've) never met a task we haven't met and gracefully overcame. The most enjoyable parts of my job are my co workers (who I constantly teach and constantly learn from) and all the diverse pieces of network equipment I get to use, configure, and troubleshoot every day.
