Most teams do not have micro management which is good, as long as the delivery of your work is good and on time you can pretty much do what you want.

You need to create your own opportunities here as they will not come to you.

Good company to work for but high stress and some of the teams can be really back stabbing. You are also micro managed and expected to log every 15 mins of time.

Typical Day - Review previous days stats and implement recovery plans for any failures. Escalations, meetings and quality reviews
Learned - Lean and Agile way of thinking

Management - With a UK CEO, and some inexperienced managers, the culture changed dramatically and lots of people started resigning. Inconsistent management of staff
Workplace Culture - Changed with the new management team with lots of nepotism

Hardest part - Micro management, having to issue your staff warnings unnecessarily .TL's not spending enough time to manage their staff

Most enjoyable part of the job - being the only team passing customer SLA's and the least attrition rate. Arranging team fun activities
Pros
Free breakfast
Cons
no company contributions to pension fund and medical aid

Computacenter do not go for skills or experience. They only go for personal preference. If they do not like you then you won't get promoted.

Processes like requiring ITIL for certain jobs only apply to the people that they don't personally like. Others get Team Lead, Tech Lead and Senior positions without ITIL. You can work very hard and they will look the other way. The only time they acknowledge you is if someone mentioned something or if you did something bad. There is no encouragement.


They expect you to do a lot of things at once and then complain if it is not done. They want quality and guantity. Targets are not logical.


Parking is a nightmare. You must go park at public places and won't care if you get robbed when walking to go get your car. They are so proud of the new building in Cape Town and yet the parking was not the big focus. Parking will still be an issue and a nightmare.
Pros
Free coffee, tea and breakfast
Cons
Bad management, No encouragement

Strong work ethos. You will be challenged and encouraged to work on your experience and qualifications at Computacenter. There is significant investment in training, however don't expect a competitive salary, especially when moving up the ranks internally.
Management is highly focused on performance and efficiency. High performers are recocgnised on a continual basis.
There is a high standard expected and service is delivered with a strong customer focus.

Parking is abysmal - 30% capacity which causes a race to park in the mornings.
Pros
company contributions, cereal and occasional burgers
Cons
high work load

Computacenter is a lovely and competitive company to work for with many growth opportunities.

A typical day at work will start out going through all my emails and check what needs to be done and finalised, i manage clients mailboxes so will check all them and action them accordingly and call users if further troubleshooting is needed, Ive learnt so much technical information during my time here and had the pleasure of doing my ITIL studies, management at CC has changed tremendously as there was huge movement on Director CEO level and i feel that this defintely changed the culture at CC.

The hardest part of my job is when i cannot fix an issue especially if its of critical priority and cannot get in touch with any resolvers.


The people at CC are pleasure to work with and make work fun and seemless.
Pros
Growth
Cons
