8 Reasons why the average tenure is 10+ years for our Network Infrastructure Services (NIS) team:

  • Pursue your dreams – How many employers truly ask you where you see yourself in 5 years and then help you pursue your dreams?
  • Flexibility & Autonomy – Initially you’ll spend more time in our office training however our team has a great deal of flexibility to tailor the right combination of remote, office and on-site time to get the job done and accommodate personal scheduling needs.
  • More Growth/Never Boring – You won’t be stuck working on a single platform or industry and instead will work on challenging projects in a variety of environments implementing cutting-edge solutions.

  • We Guard Quality of Life – Occasionally you’ll schedule yourself to help a client after hours and we reciprocate by returning the favor when you need the same courtesy with flex and comp. time.
  • Team – Catered lunches for celebrations throughout the year and an awesome team of Project Managers and Network Engineers to work with that make the day a blast with a “no man left behind” attitude!
  • Stable Long-Term Clients/Fewer Emergencies – We retain clients much like we do team members with many of our client tenures exceeding 15 years. This creates a more stable environment for everyone and the way we manage workflow leads to very few “panicked” calls/emails and late hours.
