What do you like best about working at MyITPros?

"The environment by far. Surrounded by fun and smart individuals. Having technical conversations, drinking coffee, tripping over dogs. I love it, all good vibes!"

What piece of technical advice could you never live without? 

"John Chambers said 'There are two types of companies: those who have been hacked, and those who don't yet know they have been hacked.' I take that to heart as a person when thinking about what is being said, there are always threats in today’s world because of the internet and the amount of information being on the internet, always play it safe, always implement some sort of security, always keep security on your mind, you sooner or later will be a victim but always try your best to mitigate that risk and have a strategic plan of recovery for when it does happen to calm the blow."

Which MyITpros core value do you identify with the most?

"Laugh and have fun because all the other values are standard with the James model, being able to laugh and have fun in the work place is hard to find in the world today. It’s a fantastic core value for a company to have and enforce. You don’t have to tell me twice to laugh and have fun!"
