    Pros

    I was employed to select suitable hardware and computer networking equipment for wireless devices on a local network.

    Cons

    I was employed for 30 hours a week and I loved it but I wanted to do more with setting up devices on an existing tcp/ip network

    Advice to Management

    selecting the appropriate hardware especially when it is one of the new collections of mobile device is a skill not always obvious and really needs to be assessed for its suitability for the requirements and most often problems that may occur and documentation these in a set format so as to circulate to the rest of the team.... this type of utility to spread useful informatoin is invaluable.
