Working as a Field Tech for Bytes will give you experience. The salary is not the best but it will set you up for your next job. Good company to work for but does not look after the techs.
Pros
You Gain Experience
Cons
Salary Below Standard

Bytes was a good learning phase for me, it has given me enough experience to get more opportunities from other companies, I was also given an opportunity to develop more skills as byes fund their employees to study in order to grow more and develop more skills

Servicing Multiple clients as an external consultant made the workload interesting and prevented any motonoy of being based at 1 Customer.
The company and team culture was the largest drawback, teams were often pitted against each other, i.e Analysts vs Developers and Testers.

Bytes need to pay its employees salaries that they deserve in order to keep them. employees Should not be taken away from bytes By other companies because of salaries but because one feel like the have exceeded their time at bytes and need change of environment or growth

The worst company that I have ever worked for when it comes to looking after and advancing it's staff. Remuneration is the worst and East London branch manager cannot manage and rally staff to work hard and committedly towards a common goal. Instead he is the cause for the high staff turnover because of his refusal to fight for his staff and pay them their worth.

I was a former employee of bytes managed solutions, worked as a parts control representative, all the hard work and effort we put in, was never recognised by management or higher management, you do more work and less pay, the benefits we get comes out of our salary, which they claim to be paying no room to group in a big company like bytes
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours less pay

To allocate payment received from customers
Process the invoices and credit notes

Follow up on outstanding invoices

Sending out statements and invoices as required monthly

Management cares about staff

Working hours are flexible

The most enjoyable part of the job, is that my manager is involved and we have meetings to work on the overdue amounts and the challenges we have as a team.
Pros
Management is aware of the staff challenges regarding their work
Cons
it is far to travel

As a purely software house, BMS was disappointing. The software manager doesn't have development experience, and as such has difficulty understanding deadlines, engagement limitations and margin of error in project planning. He tends to over commit and expect resources to compensate, without offering reward for extra efforts.
Pros
Stable work environment with lots of training
Cons
Unpredictable working hours, low appreciation of effort.
