Information Technologist Reviews

Q: What is it like working as an Information Technologist?

Information Technologist in Traverse City:
"Working as the IT Guy."
Pros: It challenges me to seek solutions from outside of the norm, and I am also being pushed to build skills outside of my comfort zone. I work with a great group of people that, for the most part, accepts the fact that technology is a part of business, and certainly a part of healthcare.
Cons: Sometimes, working with vendors is difficult, especially if you just need a quick answer to a question and it ends up taking a week or so. Also, many of the same small problems make it to my desk despite training others on how to avoid problems in the future.
