    Pros

    Great back office support. As an offsite associate I could always count on staff from the head office to provide excellent support at any time.

    Cons

    Had just taken over a contract from my previous employer.

    I worked at Butler America (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Butler has a comfortable, laid back work environment. Coworkers and supervisors are more than willing to mentor you and develop your skill set. My supervisor met with me regularly to ensure I understood goals, expectations and processes. Leadership has vastly improved under the new CEO.

    Cons

    Benefits aren't the best, but then again that comes with the territory when you are doing contract work.

    Pros

    They were very professional group. The lower level management was very helpful. They had the employee interest in their mind.

    Cons

    The middle level management was utterly pathetic. They really did not care too much about employee growth. All they cared was revenue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up your middle management, and ufcourse the founder himself deserted the company. The company is already down. There is really no advice that ch be given at this point of time.

    I worked at Butler America

    Pros

    Ability to work on various initiatives with some very competent senior management.

    Cons

    Company got locked into some unfavorable contracts for services and leases before the economic downturn. Hamstrung company's ability to right itself in the face of declining revenues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company has been sold. Too late for advice.

    Pros

    Good friendly work environment....no reprimanding for mistakes, just a "Make sure this does not happen again"

    Not a lot of training or direction and very low commission so not enough opportunity to make money in commissions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re think the commission structure to retain quality employees.

    I worked at Butler America as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, flexible scheduling, and lots of good interaction with co-workers.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement. Also job futures were never very clear. Management was never clear as to what was going on with the contracts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the engineers in the loop. It is hard to assess our own performance when we never receive feedback.

    I worked at Butler America full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company offers a very flexible schedule to both full time employees and interns. Office environment is fun and friendly.

    Cons

    Being a smaller company and a contractor, the benefits and pay are not the best. Being located in West Lafayette, you get the excuse "low cost of living" which translates to a smaller paycheck than you otherwise deserve. Experienced engineers do not feel valued and feel like they are replaceable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With a large number of employees <2 years experience, some people treat work like a classroom and talk/watch videos on their phone/games on their phones. Need to hire people who will focus and stay on task. Also need to make employees feel valuable and needed or else they will find better opportunities.

    I have been working at Butler America as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a pretty simple job to get started while completing school, there is very little formal training. Butler offers flexible hours to their interns and almost always makes an offer upon graduation.

    Cons

    There isn't much opportunity to "advance" at this company. The pay and benefits are fair but not very competitive.
