    Pros

    Work was mostly close to home

    Cons

    Lead me to believe I would get benefits immediately. They just need work for major projects and then dump half the technicians if not all.

    Advice to Management

    Use subcontractors instead of leading individuals to think they will be full time employees

    Pros

    Crecent pay for the area and loved the free coffee. Parking was also convenient

    Cons

    Too much micromanagement and buearacracy. Very political as well. CEO would walk right by you and never say hello.

    Advice to Management

    Be nicer and friendly and recognize the entire team besides your cronies

    Pros

    Flexible to personal needs. Only game in town.

    Cons

    No raises, promotions and pays low.

    Advice to Management

    Give some power to lower level management. For Telecommunications Installation employees it seems to be a temporary position while you find a better job and Management doesn't seem to mind keeping it that way. Do some research on what people get paid in different areas of the states. You will lose very good talent otherwise. Look at what type of work you can do with the license you have and GROW!

    I worked at AFL full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, ok starting salary Made some good friends while there.

    Cons

    Narrow minded management, very resilient to change. Things are done the way they have always been done and there is no way of changing their mind. Extreme micro-managing to the point where it's wearing on you, you feel suffocated. This trickles down from the CEO. If it's not done the way management says it needs to be done, then it's not going to happen. Very "old-school" ways of doing things and change is impossible. Repetitive work, no excitement and the way management works does not provide the drive or encouragement to bring your own ideas. Limited chances of growth within the company. Salary is not competitive, once you start your chances of getting salary increase is slim to none. No work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees to move around within the company, not stay stagnant in one position. Allow fresh ideas and minimize micro-managing. Provide some flexibility with schedule to promote work/life balance.

    Pros

    Growing company with lots of room for advancement. Self motivated, just get it done peronalities do well here. Overall good benifits and good location in Duncan, SC with several factories with in a few miles. Company is full of potential, if it can establish common goals, objectives and policies within its manufacturing facilities.

    Cons

    There is a lack of global manufacturing systems and goals. It's every man for himself, everyone has there own set of goals, if at the end of the day the numbers say everything is good then it is. If they say things are not good, the fire drills begin and knee jerk reactions are eveywhere. Policies are not enforced equally through out the plants and departments.

    Advice to Management

    Get everyone on the same page in your manufacturing facilities.
