    Pros

    Steady jobs without much stress. Work 8 hour shifts and rarely work OT.

    Cons

    Pay is below average but almost at pair with HVAC industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Here is an idea. Pay more competitive salaries and you will be able to retain the good employees.

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere and for the most part, very good group of people to work with. Because how conservatively the company operates, there aren't many layoffs.

    Cons

    It sounds cliche, but compensation is about 20 years behind and not competitive with competition. Because ASC operates on a small budget, they tend to work very "lean" and because of this it puts high stress on the rest of the employees and has continued to put ASC further behind the competition. Management is still stuck in the "good ole boy" days as in not letting employees work remotely when needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open the checkbook and hire more people.

    Pros

    if you are lazy and an underachiever this is the place to be employed.... Cause, management doesn't care or are not capable of evaluating your performance .... You can still get the same pay increase or sometimes better than your hard working colleagues.

    Cons

    I have worked here more than 20 years. If I had a degree of what I do, I wouldn't be here. Cause, there is no motivation to be here. Only motivation is that it pays the bills.

    Very Poor Management. No clear direction and a lot of fighting.

    Pros

    Plant Manager is clueless about Materials functions.

    Cons

    The fighting internally is so toxic it is impossible to work daily in the environment the plant manager thinks he knows it all and will tell you how many businesses he thinks he has run, the VP just wants to argue. They are one bad qtr away from layoffs.

    Pros

    The culture and people are very easy to get along with. This is a comfortable place to work that offers stability.

    Cons

    There is no drive to achieve anything because there is no incentive to make the company better. There is little to no opportunity for advancement and for almost all employees, particularly technical fields, this is the type of place you go to start a job or to end a career. Do not plan to grow here only come here if you are comfortable.

    Pros

    Lots of experience wearing different hats in your role. The company is understaffed so you will be tasked with lots of duties that will give you more experience.

    Cons

    Not a place to stay if you are looking to move up quickly.
    Very old school.

    Current Employee - Design Engineer  in  Plano, TX
    Current Employee - Design Engineer in Plano, TX

    Pros

    Very conservative steady company in a steady industry, so you don't usually worry about them going under. Poor performance is not well accounted for, therefore it's often not held against you. Nice people, generally older family oriented people who keep to themselves. If you like old-fashioned 8-5 work time, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Good performance is rarely recognized or rewarded. The pay and vacation/benefits is sub-par by comparing to other companies in the area. Most employees are either under-resourced, under-trained, or simply under-motivated to do effective work. The company history is one of many buyouts, mergers, and high employee turnover. Because of this, the company is frustratingly disorganized and inefficient. Morale is pretty low for the majority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To start, hire more people--in every department. Next, at least allow for a week of vacation rollover from a previous year. Current resources need serious review and re-structuring to be able to finish projects, better evaluate people, and prevent extreme boredom and frustration in the office.

    Pros

    Good place to start a job. ASC is a large comapny, but each site is fairly small and allows a person to take on many roles

    Cons

    Top level management have not the sharpest and lean on a re-engineering strategy which doesn't get you very far

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some top talent to take over crucial leadership and site roles
