Extremely talented colleagues; bad Work/Life Balance
Systems Engineer (Current Employee) – Riverside, MO – March 19, 2014
I started Velociti as a traveling wireless technician. The position requires 90+% travel. I held that position for 7 years before switching into the role of a systems engineer. The reason for the switch was to travel less and have a more well rounded work/life balance. Management promised me this position as a "work from home" position, where I would be remotely supporting techs in the field, creating installation documentation, creating training materials, and training new hires. Since becoming a systems engineer, I have been traveling about the same amount as I was when I was a technician. Mostly to install and manage pilot projects for new business. The work is very enjoyable, but the travel is starting to wear on me, which is why I am in search of a similar position with a different company that can provide me with less travel. Although Velociti is a company that requires extreme amounts of travel to be successful, I enjoy my time with the company. My colleagues are extremely talented and the projects that I am involved in keep me interested and motivated. If they can figure out a better way to manage the schedules of technicians to provide them with more time at home, then Velociti would be a great fit.
Many opportunities to grow my knowledge in IT
Very extreme travel requirements
