    Pros

    Great environment. Offers a large variety of sites to work at. Flexible hours, helpful management and convenient check in system.

    Cons

    Sometimes you get co workers that really don't care and only use the job as a stepping stone.

    Advice to Management

    If employees feel like they might be getting taken advantage of, investigate all perspectives of the situation.

    Pros

    Supervisors who let you do the job you hired to do. Advancement based on acheivement rather than length of service. Excellent pay to those who remain commited to the company. Open door policy for problem resolutions.

    Cons

    Depending on client needs, sometimes it can be difficult to schedule vacations.

    Advice to Management

    Regular meetings with employees to address any concerns. Other than that, keep doing what you do so well already.
