Support from management
Had an internship at Spanlink. This was a VoIP position in the deployment department. This company is not good for new grads because they provided literally zero training. I was left to figure everything out on my own, and everyone was too busy to answer any questions I may have had. Needless to say this internship did not last long due to this.
There was not a lot of interaction between departments. Lack of communication left the door open for oversights.
Freedom to work independently
No complaints here, however I was only an intern any never had the chance to take part in any real projects.
My co-workers received plenty of information related to any deployment they were on.
If you can make it through an internship without an ounce of training, then there are plenty of opportunities for advancement.
Overall compensation for your work
Great compensation and always on time
Vacation is encouraged for those who are hard workers.
It should be noted that Spanlink was recently bought out by Converge One. So none of the above may even be relevant anymore. Although it could be, as management and the structure is essentially the same.
Unsure as I don't pay attention to these things. I am not disabled.
It's safe there. But again, zero training, including anything related to safety. This doesn't concern me considering this is a very low risk position when it comes to injury.
VoIP is a challenging field, as is deployment. The company as a whole would fit into this category as well.
Suggestions for improvement
- Develop a training program for new employees. Find volunteers to run the training program. This would be mutually beneficial.
What I like about the company
It's a great place to work if you can survive.
What I dislike about the company
I was an intern. By that very definition I should have received some sort of training. I received none. That is not an exaggeration.
