    Inspired in the start, but quickly became suffocated.

    Technician (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsIf you want hours, they have them.

    Too big to fail.

    Variety of equipment and jobsite scenarios.

    Consvery clique oriented team of techs. If you dont't agree with the long timers they will slowly push you out the backdoor with support of middle management.

    Pay raises are stagnant.

    Very chaotic in how they handle parts.

    Handheld time/parts system is trash, they know it, they refuse to accept it.

    Bump caps, what a joke.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet with the ground floor employees about issues on jobs/in shops instead of the filtered and politicised report given by lower/middle management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Loved the company but management ran me out the door

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits, opportunity for travel, continuous growth, provides a great service

    ConsNorth America - Upper management refuses to address poor performing middle management. Continous loss of their most important asset - talent. Many very talented and bright people have left the company due to executive managment failing to address ineffective middle managers. The believe is that these managers have been there 15 yrs or more and are basically untouchable. The staff can be divided in two - Long timers and short timers. Not many fall into the middle.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTime to address some of your "tenured" management

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fast Growing company that still needs to get it's act together

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat opportunities to work on new projects. Business is growing.

    ConsNo personal life. Expected to work 24X7. Make wasteful decisions. Organization not very organized. Experience is not valued... "do as told"

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your people.... not just the surveys.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
