Pros

The money is great! Once you get a few years seniority, you can pick your job. You can be on the road all the time and make 100 grand or be in the yard and put in your 40 hours and make 60 grand. But it takes a few years.

Cons

it is feast or famine. you will be working 60 hours a week or not at all.

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits. Colleagues are typically passionate about doing a good job. Provides a long career if you can put up with all the crap.

    Cons

    Micro managed, long hours, expectation to come in on days off. Have to pay back sick days if you take them. Un-realistic expectations of task to be accomplished in amount to time at work. Entitlement culture. E-mail overload everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Let us do our jobs without being interfered with all the time.
