Good place to start your IT career.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Mason, OH (US)

I worked at Cintas full-time

ProsExcellent health benefits. Good people in the trenches. Good work life balance - if you have the right manager. Definitely a small company feel within the IT department.

ConsOne of the few IT departments still clinging to business attire. Management viewed as a club that hires/promotes conformists. IT department very conservative. Not much in the way of "cutting edge" technology.

Advice to Senior ManagementExpect to get what you pay for in terms of talent.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

ProsThe 4 day work week is by far the best thing about the job.
