Pleasant place with incredibly boring work, but the work environment and pay rate compensate for the dullness.
A typical day at work consisted of showing up, working on work until one felt like taking a lunch break. After an hour-long lunch break, one returned to working until the workday was over.

Work was left at work, the work-life balance was amazing. The people made the place worth working at; this work environment had the friendliest people I've ever worked with.


In summary, if you're looking for incredibly boring work that's compensated for amazingly via one's pay rate, and interactions with people, this is a great place to work.

okay for a stepping stone and experience
the job is relatively boring. It could make a huge impact and be a very important role but your not given any control to help improve the position or clients. Management has not been very supportive or helpful.
Pros
steady work, benefits, okay pay
Cons
no control, no marketing, bad management, no support

stay away from this company
managers are frequently bullies. company is unionized and relationship is acrimonious. Management likes to play games and likes to play one employee off against another.
Pros
hour long lunch
Cons
mean nasty managers

Best Place to work

Not what it used to be
Used to be a great, friendly place to work, although they would string you along with a temp-to-perm contract that never went permanent. But at least the people were nice. There were a lot of management changes though, so anything fun for employees was cancelled - no more Christmas parties, no more get-togethers, no more health benefits, no more flex hours. Now it is a terrible place to work.
Pros
short commute
Cons
inflexible, no benefits, no interest in talent cultivation/retention

People at CHS are great people to work with
Start the day by reviewing Help Desk Tickets and ordering them in importance such as their issue is impacting a Client would be #1.
Learned quite a bit in prepping Laptops, Desktops and Servers with Virtualization.

Worked with really good co-workers.

Hardest part was the travel and work was 13 hours which made my day rather long.

Enjoyable part is working with my Users and solving all their problems. Allows them to become more productive.
Pros
Great people
Cons
Long day

Fun and educational workplace
In my tenure as a contracted employee, CHS has contributed to personal growth and career growth. They are true to their values and culture, and stand by their mission statement in wanting to help those who are deaf, hard of hearing, as well as educate those who have healthy hearing.
The management will go above and beyond for their staff and for clients, ensuring everyone is satisfied in their experiences. They are open to listening to new ideas, and want to see the organization continue to change and grow to reflect the times and changes our society makes. This applies for the staff as well.
