    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, Great people to work with

    Cons

    Minimum Wage Base Salary (If you have a bad month in sales and you won't be able to pay your bills), must make a $5,000 minimum in profit before commissions are paid.


  2. A decent, but dead end job

    Pros

    Excellent training, decent benefits, a ton of variety in work. When I worked there, I had a lot of autonomy. When a new project came in, they would ask me how much time I needed to complete it, and would only be held accountable to the time I said I could do it in. Also, management would usually defer to the expertise of the employees. We would be handed a project or job by the management, and put in our own parts and labor estimates. If it was profitable and competitive, they would give it to the customer If not, they'd sit down with you and work the numbers until it was. I had great admiration and respect for the manager and assistant manager at that office. Probably the best managers I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    The pay was frustrating. Everyone's salary was a secret. I found out that another, less productive employee made $3 more than me, so I approached management. They raised my wage even higher than I asked for. Right before I left, I found out that a long-time technician I worked with occasionally made even less than I had originally. the other thing was that 90% of the work was with government agencies, but somehow, didn't qualify for prevailing wage labor unless the agency specified that it did. But by state law labor carried out for the government , outside of maintenance work, should be considered prevailing wage, or if federal, covered under the Davis Bacon Act. We were told that our benefits put us over the wage threshold for prevailing wage, but everywhere else I worked, prevailing wage was prevailing wage. If they just paid prevailing wage all the time, I'd probably still work there.

    Advice to Management

    Standardize your pay system. Nothing makes employees angrier than finding out the guy next to you gets paid more for doing the same job. You also need to come up with some way to provide incentives for high performers. Having career development planning wouldn't hurt either. Day Wireless could be Such a great company to work for if you just made a few changes.

    Pros

    Was exposed to some really advanced radio communication technology. Microsoft campus is a interesting place, most of the communication equipment was located there.

    Cons

    Very boring, testing the equipment got old real fast. Uniforms all the time, never been my thing.

    Advice to Management

    Rare raises, decent start pay for a few years experience.

    Pros

    Great place to work if you enjoy the blind leading the blind and lots of professional contradiction.

    Cons

    Extremely unrealistic expectations placed on new hires. Unorganized and provided no training resources to new hires. During work prayer sessions.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a training manuel for new hires especially if supervisors aren't able to work with new hires consistently.
