    Pros

    Benefits, family orientated, excellent training facility, time off, boot allowance. Everybody is nice and easy to work with. They always are willing to teach you new things.

    Cons

    The one thing I would like to see is change the pay period to match the rotation (Wednesday-Tuesday) and pay 40hrs on week off. This would give us more overtime, as of write now the last couple days of your hitch is only paid regular time and the guys feel jipped.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change pay periods to Weds-Tuesday

    Pros

    guaranteed time off on rotational schedule. Potential opportunities for growth exist. In general, PA operations are very professional and upper management take a serious interest in ensuring safe work environments and practices.

    Cons

    Speaking from the engineering experience, there seems to be very little difference between the various levels of field engineers. ( TSIT I, TSIT II, and Technical Specialist). Not only that, but the role of the field engineer seems to be relatively obsolete for PA operations. Not that we don't go out to the field, we just don't have very many responsibilities on-site. We could do most of what we do remotely as our presence isn't really necessary. Also, the compensation is known to be one of the lowest in the area for Field Engineers.

    Pros

    The salary that is offered in the company is very competitive, and the benefits are very comprehensive. They are very good about work-life balance, and they include a bonus for profitable years.

    Cons

    There were hardly any cons, but minor conflicts in departmental visions/goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to align departments with similar visions/goals.
