    Best experience that anyone could have.

    Wire Technician (Former Employee) Fort Lauderdale, FL

    ProsI love the job that I had to do. I am a hands on person and rather be out in the field than to be sitting in front of a computer all day. .

    ConsSome of the managers would rather hurt you than help which is sad but true.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTechnicians should have more of a voice when it comes to the work ethics. Half of the people who are making the changes have never done the type of work before, and don't have a clue to what we have to do to make that happen.

    There was opportunity for advancement if you worked hard

    Associate Director (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsThe pay was very good. They offered classes to learn project management, systems and other things to help you improve in certain skills. I love the company, the brand, and the leadership. They make sure you receive the training you need to do a great job.

    ConsThere wasn't much work life balance. They believe managers should always work 9 hours not including lunch. When working in the sales department sometimes you would not receive your sales goal until June. Then of course it was always higher than what you met which means now for the rest of the year they would take money out of your check to take back what they had paid you for "exceeding" the temporary goals that were set from Jan-Jun. Sales goals should be set and ready no later than the end of Jan.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate more work life balance for employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
