    I have been working at EMG Corp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility while working from home is great, pretty decent benefits and friendly staff (for the most part)

    Cons

    Extremely long hours sometimes for project managers. Field management will send you somewhere that takes 4-6 hours to get there, but because it's not that far in mileage you are expected to go there and return in same day. With so little notice given before long travel, you can pretty much say goodbye to any possible schedule or commitment in evenings during the week, which makes planning with friends or family impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Provide further notice when you're expected to be gone, and give some travel days and days to catch up on administrative items. So many weekends are spent doing time sheets, expenses, benefits review, travel arrangements etc. it would be nice to have some time during the week to get that stuff done and not have to extend the work days into the late evenings.

    Pros

    Management is really interested in making this a better place to work. The firm is growing at a rapid pace.

    Cons

    Long strenuous work hours. You may have to very well give up your personal life to work for this company.

    Pros

    Work from home if you are remote - allows for some flexibility when you are not on the road. Company leadership is quite talented and great people. Management is very concerned about the bump in revenues without added profitability and they hope to address the fundamental core that is teetering on dysfunctional.

    Cons

    Poor division of life/work - manager encouraging that you answer emails on your own time or telling you to ignore emails altogether. Very little accountability, on-the-fly training for complex tasks within the report delivery system. Conflicting directions from people with different agendas, poor planning on projects and execution, PMs suffer cheapo flights with long layovers and connections that cost you your Sunday and saves the company money on direct flights....which would be cheap if they could only plan in advance. So much rush-rush urgency that is self-inflicted and so unnecessary.

    Advice to Management

    Join a PM for a few days in the field and you'll see how long and hard the people at the bottom work to support the company and the challenges they face that are created by management.

    Pros

    People enjoy the culture and dynamic President - although this could be getting old as there are flaws he is aware of in several processes.

    Cons

    Cheapest company on earth, no real health benefits, lots of talk with very little action

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that everyone plays be the rules instead of giving preferential treatment to a few

    I worked at EMG Corp full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Liked most of the work; it was a pretty good fit for my experience and skills.

    Cons

    Poor communication, not much support, little regard for Project Managers safety, basically no one cared about you, just getting the report in on time. Everyone seemed overworked and scrambling -- no time for them to help you with your job. "Get that roof shot no matter the consequences". Unrealistic time and site visit expectations too.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about job safety, improve communications, support, supervision, and training. Get more help to PMs.

    I worked at EMG Corp full-time

    Pros

    Liked the casual attire. Could wear jeans anytime. Ability to work from home. Decent amount of vacation.

    Cons

    Super unprofessional. Beer should not be served to employees at 4pm on a Friday. It's irresponsible and dangerous. Job description pretty much changed daily. If you weren't a manager you weren't appreciated. Too many management changes, all managers contradicted each other. Would be told one thing, and then would be yelled at about it the next day. No breaks allowed. Pay was WAY under standard. Didn't take employee opinions into consideration, only did what was best for the executive team. Don't ever expect to get credit for your own ideas. Age discrimination. Held it against you if you worked from home. No opportunity to advance, they just hired over you. No game plan, everything was done on a whim. Very unorganized company.

    Advice to Management

    Have less employees and pay them more. Actually value all employees instead of just acting like you do. Treat everyone as equal and take all employees' thoughts into consideration when making big changes, like changing locations of the office. Be more professional.
