    Pros

    Good Pay for first two years. Time off is easy if you don't mind not getting paid for it. Career opportunities are plentiful if you don't get injured coming through the revolving door.

    Cons

    Hardly any paid time off. Disgruntled employees every year due to the company focusing on meeting percentage figures for the company to grow. Work with less than satisfactory tools to complete a job. Cold weather conditions bear no relevance to management's decisions for need of company vehicles for use on job. If you get an hourly raise, they will take it away from you tenfold somewhere else. Self insured medical benefits. If you get anything beyond a cold, look forward to a three ring circus to get the company to actually pay out a benefit. If you get an offer letter, don't assume you will be getting the same benefit as a friend who may have referred you. The company carefully words every element of offer letters so they are not found liable to pay you anything extra down the road.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come back down off your corporate mountain and show some appreciation for the people who are pouring their blood, sweat and tears into your "Listen, Learn, Grow" bologna. Your human resources should involve helping employees to feel a part of a system..part of a team. Instead, they are used as your messengers to deliver the messages through smoke and mirrors. If you are looking at places to cut unnecessary spending, look to cut some fat off the top of the hog. Your bottom line should not continuously screw over your bottom people. If you want people to "buy in" to your concept of "customer first foundation principles" at least allow them to grow with the company. On the road to building your dynasty, keep in mind that the country is already sick of "too big to fail". The dysfunction created by turnover is a direct result of the message of mistrust you have created. If you are upfront with people in their orientation periods, perhaps the mistrust would not overwhelm your existing accounts.
