Laura Fairchild and the Supervisor Training Course

Laura Fairchild had been a supervisor and a project manager at a few different tech companies before she joined Computronix. She says that after she was hired, her first major challenge was “to learn the project methodology here. Computronix just does things a little bit differently.” The challenge was quickly overcome by completing tasks during the course of her job. “The first time doing something was the most difficult, and everyone’s been very great and very helpful. It’s an extremely supportive environment for project managers,” she explains. That care and helpfulness is something that Laura has come to expect from […]

Steven Shorey and the Emerging Leaders Course

Computronix employees are constantly encouraged and given opportunities to learn and become better at their jobs, and even to move into new positions if they so desire. As part of this emphasis on professional development, the company offers several programs, courses and classes, such as the Emerging Leaders course. Steven Shorey is a Tech Lead at Computronix, and during his first year with the company he took the Emerging Leaders course. He felt that, although he had been in a few different leadership positions previously, he’d never really been taught the “right way” to be a leader.  He wanted to […]

The CX Academy

One of the core values at Computronix is growth. That means that we’re always trying to grow and improve as a company, but also that we value individual growth for our employees.

Interview With Theresa Ayers, Developer

For our Computronix employee interviews, we sit down with people from all levels of our company and ask them about their jobs, and what it’s like working for Computronix. The vast majority of professionals in the tech industry are male, particularly among programmers and developers. This fact can cause problems with women’s work being undervalued or not taken seriously. A recent study found that although women’s code was actually rated slightly higher than men’s, the women were more likely to have their code rejected. Theresa Ayers was the only female in her engineering program at college, and she experienced some of that […]

For our Computronix employee interviews, we sit down with people from all levels of our company and ask them about their jobs, and what it’s like working for Computronix. When starting any new job, there’s a learning curve involved in becoming familiar with the company, with your new position, and learning where or who to go to for help. To understand how Computronix tries to make this transition as smooth as possible, we spoke to Lori Bluemel three months into working for Computronix as a Senior Business Analyst – just long enough to have caught up with the learning curve, […]

Interview with Matthew Johnson, Tech Lead

For our Computronix employee interviews, we sit down with people from all levels of our company and ask them about their jobs, and what it’s like working for Computronix. One thing you discover when talking to Computronix employees is that many of them are extremely committed to the company. It’s not uncommon to meet someone who has been part of Computronix for a decade or more, working their way from an entry-level job to a management position. Matthew Johnson is a perfect example of that, as he started working here 14 years ago as an apprentice who knew “very little […]
