Computer Technician Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Computer Technician?

Computer Technician in Melbourne:
"Headline."
Pros: Tech field involvement, keep up to date with latest tech.
Cons: Not much opportunity for growth, limited time to properly follow up and improve processing due to high volume of customer service with few staff.

Computer Technician in Lismore:
"Varied And Interesting."
Pros: You get a lot of variety, meet and help a lot of different people. The problems faced day to day are constantly evolving and there is some exposure to higher-level IT work. Work environment is pretty relaxed and conditions flexible.
Cons: The higher-level IT stuff is limited in quantity. Workload fluctuates quite a bit. There is no "up", as this is a small business. This is the reason it's so relaxed, but at the same time, once you're up to speed there is little opportunity to grow further.
