    Pros

    Forward looking company that stays on the cutting edge. Involves employees in operational and strategic planning. Is willing to make changes when needed. Strives to be the best.

    Cons

    To much direction by to few people. Need to reorganize the top end structure to broaden out hierarchy. I believe this will be done.

    Pros

    Great culture, great environment to work in. Fantastic co-workers which adds to the ease of the workday. Leadership genuinely cares about the individuals growth and development, not just the professional aspect. For the service team, there areas Service centers spread throughout the Chicago area and suburbs to help with commutes. Training is above par for service personnel. The corporate office is always buzzing with activity which helps with the laid back atmosphere. It's definitely not a typical uptight, stuffy corporate environment! Open door policy for those who have ideas and suggestions for areas of improvement to upper management. Management seems to always be looking to better the workplace environment to help the co-workers be successful. Benefits, aside from paid time off, are great. The company really helps to offset the costs to the co-worker. Open positions are usually posted internally first, giving co-workers an opportunity to apply or let others know of the positions available.

    Cons

    Only a 2 week paid vacation for the first 10 years. A progressive upward path for each position is not spelled out (or even in existence) for some roles, making it frustrating to look ahead for career advancement. This can result in a deflated attitude when hard work has no way of being rewarded accordingly. Sometimes policies and procedures are implemented too quickly which can be confusing and inconsistent. Also, there have been changes, customer promotions or policy adjustments that are not always communicated in a timely manner to other departments that might be directly impacted.

    Advice to Management

    Strive to make sure all departments are on board/informed when making major changes/adjustments. Look into a more fair vacation plan. Consider researching more competitive compensation plans and progressive advancement structures for all departments so co-workers won't be forced to look elsewhere for "better opportunities". Be the Better Opportunity! Continue to lead by example in not only showcasing good core values but also participating in community outreach programs which makes Anderson standout as a great place to work!

    Pros

    Really nice people, really good training, and pretty much you feel like the people at Anderson really care about you as a person, not just a worker. Some of the upper management care about you and want to help you advance.

    Cons

    Little or no room for advancement as family members keep tight control, raises don't happen much and are small when they do happen. Only 2 weeks vacation for your first 10 years.

    Pros

    the people are nice friendly and very helpful. Train was very good while in Class. up today trucks. That after 90 days you get to take home with you.

    Cons

    Pay is low. training in the field but direct manager bad. Long hours during the summer over 12 hour days some times. They add appointment to a already full day and expect you to get it all done. Sometime with little to no notice. Working 8 plus hours every Saturday during the summer and even in to winter.

    Advice to Management

    Split large routs up that are so big its hard to get from one appointment to another in a reasonable amount of time. If your Manager say something like you can take your next test this week then hold them accountable to that. Don't tell your people to work every Saturday when in training there told its optional.

    Pros

    Monday through Friday. Flexible hours. Great teamwork and makes sure your have the tools for success. No micro-management. Several districts to keep you close to home.

    Cons

    Low ceiling for pay. Limited advancement opportunities. Only three weeks vacation after ten years. Caters way too much to customers. Driving policy is ludicrous.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what has made you so successful.

    Pros

    Awesome teamwork. Supportive staff. Keep Techs well supplied. Company vehicle with gas and ipass. Localized routes. Charitable organization. Flexible hours. Weekends off. SOP keeps Anderson ranked high as far as service versus the competitors.

    Cons

    Pay increases attached to test instead of performance. Family business. Few vacations. Ridiculous driving restrictions and penalties. SOP leaves Techs hanging in time where instant kill is required. Not much minority leadership in corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what has made Anderson successful.

    Pros

    The people here are incredibly supportive. Very family like environment. The president and director of operations interact with almost everyone. High upside to sales job if you work hard. Monthly car allowance.

    Cons

    Can take a long time to ramp up. Obviously the industry isn't ideal if you are easily scared of roaches/rats.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers & excellent benefits. The culture is unique, family oriented and everyone is always willing to go out of their way to help one another. In my position, there is always something different to look forward to every day, which makes the days fly by.

    Cons

    Incentives are not offered or set up for all departments.

    Advice to Management

    The compensation and incentive programs should be evaluated so that they are fair for all aspects of the business departments. Everyone wants to know their hard work is rewarded. To know that some of the business units are intensified and other are not is a bit disappointing,
