    Pros

    Family environment with a focus on doing what's right instead of manipulating the numbers for a board. A very successful organization who is constantly looking to grow in other markets. They look to hire and develop their leaders within the organization, which benefits the employees opportunity to advance themselves. This company not only stayed alive during the recession, it grew through those times by expanding into 3 other markets. The recession was a horrible time for the building industry, but Fischer didn't just survive, it thrived.

    Cons

    Salary structure is not the highest, but the bonus structure is higher than the norm making the total compensation package possibility higher than the competition. Bonuses are not always easy to achieve. In my experience I have had successful experiences and some that were not the best. I also worked through the recession, so bonuses with tougher. Bonuses allow the employee the opportunity to choose their path. They can work more for a better reward with less work-life balance or not.

    Advice to Management

    Management has changed and I still enjoy working for the new team. It would be nice to have a consistent direction from one leader to the next. The great part is that they will sit in a room and work through their differences.

    Long process. Not quick to get back with candidate. Management not organized. Seemed so busy they could not get back with candidate when they said they would. Company appears to be growing. Very unstructured interviewing process.
