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 […]
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 […]

Wholeness is one of the three core values at Computronix, meaning that we value our employees and customers for who they are as people, not just the monetary value they can bring us. As our business plan states, we are committed to “supporting overall life balance.” One important aspect of a balanced life is health and well-being, including physical fitness.

At Computronix, we often do things differently than other companies. Not for the sake of innovation or being unique or anything else, but simply because we believe that sometimes the traditional methods aren’t the best ones. One example of this is the Ambassador Group, which serves as a recruitment group – and so much more!

Chris Johnstone, the co-chair of the group, describes their goals as “making […]
