    Former Intern - Control Systems Design in Detroit, MI

    I worked at EMCOR (Connecticut) as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The office culture was very relaxed. The people there were very nice to everyone. The Lead Engineers treated us interns with such respect.

    Cons

    The work tended to get dry and repetitive. I liked the work, but it didn't make me think enough to feel accomplished with what I was doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider rotational programs for new grads to get a better grasp on what they want to do with their time.

    Pros

    Handful of incredible people still work for this company, but I don't know how they keep their sanity within a hellish environment.

    Cons

    The executives have a God complex and think they own you because they give you a paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your lies will catch up with you.

    I worked at EMCOR (Connecticut) part-time

    Pros

    It was a great atmosphere for the first couple of years

    Cons

    Very strict, upper management had a dictator-esque personality. Like Kim Jong Il he would just show up and not say anything to you.. just watch for a minute then leave.. Then maybe fire you later for no apparent reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your expectations high only if you are willing to put in the effort to properly train employees.

    Pros

    A really good learning opportunity, I am able to be involved in a lot more than I was hired to do

    Cons

    I've had my benefits downgraded 3 times in four years, an insultingly small raise despite consistently 'exceeding expectations'

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My account manager never communicates changes to my job site - we have learned about every single change well after implementation

    I have been working at EMCOR (Connecticut) full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with the mechanics, but management was pitiful or should I say non-existent.

    Cons

    Corporate didn't care about issues at the site, as long as costs were in check and reports were turned in on time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue, you will lose contracts - the customer is not happy and you have an unqualified manager running your site.
