A well-rounded learning experience
Data Center Engineer (Former Employee) –  VariedApril 22, 2018
Working at Presidio offered a learning experience rarely found inside typical corporate environments. As a professional services company, everyone - from architects to pre-sales engineers to delivery engineers - has an opportunity to work in many different kinds of organizations, and that in-turn offers an opportunity to learn and work with all sorts of technology in many different use-cases. The ability to develop my skill set from a role in delivery to pre-sales design was perhaps the most enriching and most enjoyable part of my experience at Presidio.
Pros
Growth in my technical skill set
Cons
Unpredictable travel at times

Not a bad first job
Network Operations Center Technician (Former Employee) –  Lewisville, TXApril 4, 2018
Good place to get into the IT world. Get some experience then get out.
There is no path for advancement and pay is generally below the market average. The trade off is they will hire pretty much anyone.

Avoid this company
Solution Architect (Former Employee) –  NYMarch 20, 2018
Presidio completely lied about/obscured their financial status, Once they were forced to go public (IPO) due to mismanagement of funds ($2.1 billion debt for a company of 2,700 employees), the ax started to fall. Upper management would consistently assure employees that they would not be laid off, only to lay them off 3 months later.
As a result, it was everybody for themselves. Clients shied away from them, resulting in more layoffs.
Feel free to join Presidio if you don't care about job stability.
Pros
Compensation, good technical talent
Cons
Everything else

IT Engineer (Current Employee) –  Reston, VAMarch 15, 2018
Presidio worked well to keep entire staff consistently working and traveling. Our billable hours were always steady and strong.
When slow time approached, Presidio would allow us to utilize time for self study.

Very Poor management, would not recommend
Senior Network Engineer (Former Employee) –  VAFebruary 11, 2018
I worked for Presidio 2x in the past 8 years. I went back the 2nd time hoping a different location/team would be different. This is a VAR/Consulting company that has grown in size but not in mindset. Promotion is based on who you know. They are so far behind in mindset & how they treat their engineers compared to 3 or more other big Cisco partners. Other reviewers are correct in saying that this company has a sales team that over promises to clients to close the sale at the expense of the engineers that do the hands-on work. They also sub-contract to other smaller companies on work they don't have in-house expertise in, but tells the subcontractors NOT to inform the clients that they are not Presidio employees. Very deceitful! What you get as a customer is purely dependent on how the local consulting team functions at various regions/cities. Would not recommend them as an employer or technology partner.

CEO - over-promising to make the numbers look good & sales people getting bigger commission comes at the expense of field engineers and, more importantly, your customers! Ask yourself if your managers actually perform or are they just sending numerical reports to make their "performance" look good?
Pros
Place to learn new/specific technologies as a stepping stone
Cons
Very POOR management

Advancement oppurtunity at times

Worst Managed Services in IT
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  TexasDecember 29, 2017
Their is zero chance to advance in the company unless you sell your soul. Office politics > sales numbers. That’s how you progress. Their Services team is king of over promising and under delivering. Management blames the sales team for th poor performance by the engineers and it’s the perfect case of “The blind leading the blind.” Avoid at all cost.
Pros
Work from home occasionally
Cons
