Pros

College Station branch was a great place to work. The office manager is very knowledgeable and friendly.

Cons

I know of several people at other branch locations that had bad experiences. Seems like layoffs are a common occurrence throughout the company.

Advice to Management

College Station management is great!

    Pros

    One of the number one engineering company

    This is all based off of the telecom side

    Cons

    1. Have people breathing down your back
    2. Dont like you find stuff that is wrong for construction. "Said I'm out of my job line" thought that what im there to do is to find something wrong and adress it when I think its wrong.
    I could go on for days about how messed up the telcom is.

    3. They want you to be robots and they think if ur not in your seat your goofing off when your answering questions even knowning the high ups tell people to come see me. I still get in trouble for talking too much when im answering a work questions that need to be explain out.

    Advice to Management

    Find out what you employs are really doing befor make a big dession on things

    Good compensation, but a company trying to solve global issues with local solutions.
