I am excited to continue growing with this fantastic company! It is a noted fact that some of the management within the company is a source of the issues we are trying to fix. The protester's contrary interpretation of the solicitation's B-18 specification is overly restrictive and unreasonable. The agency denied Carahsoft's protest on February 26. The company supports more than 3,000 prime contractors, value-added re-sellers, system integrators and other channel partners. I find the atmosphere to be stifling and constricting. I, personally, do not enjoy the company.
Selling to Government: What It Takes to Compete and Win in the World's Largest Market. Decent first job out of college. I have met people who love the work they do and enjoy the company, but I don't see it. There are good benefits, and free meals around the busier times of the months. Carahsoft did not pursue this protest further. Magnify that in July, August, and September which are our busiest months and it becomes mind breaking and unbearable.
Selling to the Government: Amtower on B2G. To be reasonable, an interpretation must be consistent with the solicitation when read as a whole and in a manner that gives effect to all provisions of the solicitation. There are no recogntion given for your achievements along with little to no advancement in career opportunities. We deny the remainder of Carahsoft's protest. Faceted search capability software would allow a user to search for the picture of the house using any of the facets listed above. The solicitation listed 19 minimum technical specifications. Carahsoft argues that this failure rendered MicroLink's quotation unacceptable.
The agency argues that this demonstrates that MicroLink's software currently complies with the requirement of supporting half a billion records at any time after implementation since scalability is a function of hardware configuration. We sustain the protest in part and deny it in part. There are lots of employee engagement and community service opportunities to get involved in. Carahsoft and MicroLink submitted quotations by the closing date of January 7. If you put in the effort, there are lots of opportunities for advancement as well.
Because the record is not entirely clear on this point, the agency may want to address this matter during the corrective action we recommend below in order to verify MicroLink's compliance with this technical specification in view of the concerns raised by Carahsoft. The quoted language referenced by the agency describes the performance capability of the software and the means of implementing this capability, and does not address when this capability will be fully available. The management only has two extremes: not involved or Micro-Managing. Carahsoft filed the current protest on March 12 and supplemented it on April 23. A vendor is responsible for affirmatively demonstrating the merits of its quotation and risks the rejection of its quotation if it fails to do so. This failed to account for modification No.
As defined by the agency, aggregate calculations are summary calculations such as total or average on a set of values that return a single value; a deterministic aggregate calculation therefore is the result of a summary calculation that obtains the same result each time the calculation is performed using a specific input on the same database. Terrible pay to start out. Prior to the time set for receipt of revised quotations, Carahsoft filed an agency-level protest of the proposed corrective action by the agency. There is a strong sense of community within this company that makes me excited to go to work each and every day. Clearly stated solicitation technical requirements are considered material to the needs of the government, and a quotation that fails to conform to such material terms is technically unacceptable and may not form the basis for award. Vendors were required to submit technical proposals addressing how the vendor would meet each of these requirements. I enjoy working at Carahsoft because we truly are a team here.
Final price quotations were requested of, and submitted by, Carahsoft and MicroLink on February 10; the agency did not request or allow the vendors to submit revised technical quotations. Not a place for creativity. Extended vacations are usually covered, but if you're out sick for a few days, your work will pile up because no one is able to take it. Carahsoft is a very fast growing company that is exciting to work for. It means that your work will not be covered and that you will be coming back to extra work the next day. The culture is made up of motivated individuals who really want to succeed. Carahsoft has a unique company culture that encourages its employees to go the extra mile, time and time again.
Where a dispute exists as to the actual meaning of a solicitation requirement, we will resolve the issue by reading the solicitation as a whole. Large disconnect between what mangers will tell you in interviews and actuality. For example, if someone took a picture of a house with a camera, the facets metadata associated with that picture could be: the date, time, coordinates, aspect ratio, type of camera, etc. Thus, we find unreasonable the agency's finding that Microlink's quotation satisfied the minimum requirement that the scalability be available any time after implementation. Carahsoft is a good place to kick off your sales career, if sales is something you'd like to pursue. Carahsoft is a government provider.
But that is only one opinion. For the amount of work I do on a daily basis, and my department as a whole, we are criminally underpaid and dangerously understaffed. Gordon Acting General Counsel Faceted search capability software enables a user to navigate searches for information along multiple paths corresponding to different orderings of facets metadata. A sales representative is also expected to attend trade shows to learn about new technologies to grow his or her territory. The management team has a lot of experience so they are knowledgeable and seem to truly enjoy their job; which reflects in how they treat their employees.
Team oriented company so whatever team you land on determines your experience. I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Carahsoft. No one will take you seriously and you deserve better than this job. A facet metadata is a searchable attribute of data. My hours are longer than they should be because I feel like the expectation is that all of your work needs to be completed before the end of your day.
