Network Administrator Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Network Administrator in Montréal:
Think twice before taking this job. Be ready to get called past midnight for creating PowerPoint presentations due in the morning since the president always leaves things to last minute. Expect every task you receive from the president to be critical and needed by the end of the day; even if the task requires a month to complete. Expect to wait up to 6 months sometimes before you get paid (average time without most people getting paid is 3 months). Expect to work week-end and nights if the president sees fit. Expect the lowest salary ever for the work you do between 10,000$ - 20,000$ for work that people get paid 50,000$-80,000$. Be prepared for the president to control you with mind games and twisted truths to downright lies. If I had the chance I would down right refuse the job. The only benefit is meeting some nice people which you can do at any Job. Steer clear!!!! Very high stress levels when you are poor. You can't negotiate salary with the president.

"Stress level is high."
Patience and ordered.

Network Administrator in Toronto:
