Q: What is it like working as an Information Technology Specialist?

July 2016
"Stressfull."
Information Technology Specialist:
Pros: I enjoy working with a diverse group of people and taking care of the systems that are used to help veterans. I like working in the city.
Cons: Tasked with things that are outside the scope of an IT Specialist. No room to advance in my career. Limited access to our systems to troubleshoot and learn. Not trusted by upper management to have access to our systems. Micro managed. Overly secure to the point it is very time consuming to do my job, sometimes impossible. Lack of equipment to support the agency. Communication throughout the agency is non existent at best. No management on site. Not trusted to have supervisory tasks though I am qualified. Discrimination by my director. Favoritism towards my directors local employees.

"Youth in IT."
Information Technology Specialist in Matawan:
Pros: I like the consistently changing environment, in terms of different jobs at hand. Whether low voltage wiring, on site computer troubleshooting and repair there is always a challenge to overcome. I also love being surrounded by the constantly developing field of technology.
Cons: One downside to my position with my current company, is that I do not get compensated for several things. Time driven, gas, personal vehicle miles, are all expenses that are not returned. I also have no schedule, totally and completely on call with no pre-established jobs.

Gain strict outline about the core daily responsibilities. Understand what is the companies participation in your career path. How does the company expect you to handle stress levels. Under what are the perks and valuable skills associated with this job. Never stop learning and don't get complacent.
