  2.  

    Resistance to improve internal processes and weak talent retention are prohibiting any long-term growth potential.

    I have been working at Beam Team full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The office environment is EXTREMELY relaxed. I never once in 8 months of working there felt "eggshells" beneath my feet. Casual Fridays. Occasional breakfast and lunch provided by owners in break room.

    Cons

    No personal growth potential unless you have an "IN" with owners or senior-level employees. Least competitive compensation across the board for any company I've been associated with. The "workhorses" of the company in Field Operations/Finance are compensated poorly while Sales/Corporate Operations are unjustly paid significantly more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move towards a younger, more driven and competent workforce. ESPECIALLY in the corporate office. Compensate accordingly. Make management willing to consider ideas/changes of employees.

    I worked at Beam Team part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The Beam Team has definitely grown and changed over the years. What used to be a small company servicing one or two clients has changed drastically. Some senior management is hands on and in tune with their field guys, which is refreshing.

    Cons

    Field jobs can be sporadic, high stress with people on the road more than they should be (can cause accidents/overworked and unhappy employees). Pay was not competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change is okay, so let it happen. When company size changes, the way things are done needs to change. You need to offer competitive pay so you can retain the good people and get quality people in the field. You're not out in the field anymore, it is a different world out there.

    Pros

    Different work often. Not a boring job. Good pay with decent benefits.

    Cons

    Lots of travel. Hotels are hit or miss. Would be better if guaranteed fridge and microwave.

    Good feedback about the hotels. I will work with our travel agency to see if they can add microwave/fridge to their hotel search criteria. Thank you for your post!

    I worked at Beam Team full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    While working in one of the stores there was a relatively high amount of flexibility over how you completed the work. For instance I was given a set of tasks and could decide how I wanted to complete them, as long as they were all finished within the time frame.

    Cons

    Poorly managed
    Lots of traveling
    Overworked employees, the salary employees regularly had to work 60+ hours a week for relatively little pay.

    While working I would often lose out on sleep because of very long hours, sometimes more than 14 to 16 straight. Was led by an unskilled manager who didn't know what he was doing half the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that all employees and managers have been properly trained before they begin working.

    Thank you for your honest feedback. This job is probably not a good fit for those who dislike travel. However, a large majority of our staff really enjoy traveling with their work teams and hanging ... More

    Pros

    A paycheck. Free shirts to work in.

    Cons

    Lazy team leads that take excessive smoke breaks. Makes more work for hourly employees cause the temp are usually worthless. If team lead is not smoking they are checking email. Three weeks working then three weeks off makes it difficult to pay bills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let me know more than a few days in advance if I am working. I probably have some plans that need changed or to organize alternate child care. You know what work you have lined up in the future.

    I have been working at Beam Team full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay above average, get paid to travel. We have gotten a lot of new business in the last year and it is increasing. People open to travel and willing to work hard will be rewarded in many ways. Good benefits. Bonuses!

    Cons

    Travel (you won't always be in Vegas, Miami, New York, etc you will be stuck in bad towns). Lots of wear and tear on vehicle. Hours are hard to get around holiday periods.. Have to share hotel rooms. Sometimes long hours are required to get job done, and if they can't find employees you will have to work with temps. I would have an issue trying to get a friend hired due to furlough periods.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about peoples quality of life on the road. Hard to work, sleep, and travel with someone for weeks at a time.

    Pros

    One can develop dexterity, retail experience, computer skills and familiarity with plan-o-grams (fixture blueprints). The pay is pretty useful as well, and increases as one gets promoted.

    Cons

    Long hours (10hrs+) of drudgery. Some of the workers can have their share of laziness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    WORK HARD!
