    Pros

    Getting a great workout, while earning good money in an excellent company. Social gas was by far one of the best companies i have had the privilege of working for. They emphasize of safety and ensure that customers as well as employees are happy.

    Cons

    As a meter Reader the cons were definitely reading meters in extreme environments. But the worst is dealing with Dogs/debris and even customers who seems to believe that they have the best pets in the world, despite the fact that their pet/dog is clearly ready to take a bite out of meter readers.

    Advice to Management

    The management team is excellent, they value their positions and definitely go great length to keep employees happy. I can t say much more about them.

    Pros

    Union representation, good pay, comfortable office, customer service oriented, plenty of sick days and vacation days. For someone who's not attempting to get into management, office politics are not an issue. A lot of time and money goes into its employees in potlucks and incentives for working safely. Even though advancement is mainly based on seniority so people who may not be best qualified for a position may get it, a lot of training and coaching is provided so employees are competent.

    Cons

    It's very easy to get too comfortable and settle in one position if you're not proactive. This isn't the company's fault but it does happen.

    Advice to Management

    More opportunities for training in different fields.

    Pros

    Lots of exercise, great pay, you would get gift cards to restaurants for doing your job right every month.

    Cons

    It gets challenging to deal with customers since you are going in and out of their backyards, you sometimes deal with dogs that are not properly put away.
