The only decent part of the job was my 2 weeks of training and after that in turned into a nightmare. The manager is a tyrant and a bully who punishes people she hates and rewards those she likes. If you are one minute late to your desk, you could get fired for it. Simply uncaring and unprofessional environment. I am so glad I am out of there.
Senior Systems Engineer (Former Employee), Raleigh, NC – March 21, 2014
Pros: knowledgeable engineers
Cons: director of sales/solutions should not be managing it engineers.
At the forefront, Alphanumeric appears to have a decent business model with knowledgeable and professional owners/CEO.
The internal organization, policies, SOP's and team building are non-existent. It's a "work-horse" environment with no ROI. After working with several clients and projects which were misquoted in both time and expense by the Alphanumeric – more... sales team and Solutions Director, I found this group both unprofessional and irresponsible for their actions.
I would NOT recommend the services of this company to any colleague or business partner. – less
Service Desk Analyst (Former Employee), Raleigh, NC – September 24, 2013
Pros: none. did not learn anything at this job
Cons: no work to do. incompetent management and lead personel
The job is considered Help Desk Analyst but this was not a Help Desk position. Our job was just to pass calls to the real Help Desk for each client. Management gives impression to clients when walking through the service desk that this is a professional work environment with more employees that actually worked on the desk. Management would make other – more... employees that worked for different departments to set up phony work stations to give the appearance that the Service Desk operation was bigger than it actually was. Most of the time their was no work to do and we were forced to sit their doing nothing for the entire shift. I worked for this company for approximately six months and eight employees were fired for no reason at all. Bathrooms and kitchen are kept dirty with food in the refrigerator for months at a time before it is cleaned out. I would not recommend this company to anyone. Terrible experience. – less
Excellent experience with fulfilling contactural employment opportunity
PC Technician (Former Employee), Columbia, SC – May 2, 2012
Pros: travel, learning windows xp, networking, printer installation
Cons: offices not ready for installation
A typical work day would begin at 8am to 5pm at a Department of South Carolina Social Services office to unistall a departments computer equipment, then to reinstall the new equipment with the least amount of disruption of service. I learned time management, coordination of effort between mangement and co-workers and negotiation techniques. The hardest – more... part of the job having all of the segments (staff workers, suppliers, branch managers, equipment) to stay in sync to get each office done in one day. The most enjoyable part was finishing the offices in one city and moving to the next overcoming a different set of obstacles. – less
