Pros

Great work place. Lots of responsibilities. Ability to create your own work day and manage people how you like to. Also, as a manager you are given a work truck.

Cons

For the amount of responsibilities you are given, the pay is not that high. Profit sharing is given once a year and after taxes it turns out to be a small amount of money.

Advice to Management

Should pay key employees more.

    Pros

    Some good people who work at field worker level.

    Cons

    Managers are taught by corporate to lie to employees, and they put it into over-drive. Long hours, low pay, no benefits unless you have knee pads and are willing to use them on a constant basis, back-stabbing, micro management...the list goes on and on and on.

    Advice to Management

    Get off your lazy asses and actually DO SOMETHING. Go out in the field once in awhile, and stop playing favoritism ! DOn't LIE to people by telling them one thing to their faces and turning around and throwing them under the bus.

    Pros

    At this day and age, it is a start for those out of college who have little other options unfortunately.

    Cons

    Mark my words, if the region i work in is any indication of what the rest of company is doing then get ready to be sold out. Top line revenue generation is not a priority any longer. In the Midwest there is leadership at the helm that harps on cutting overhead and good employees. This is not a relationship and sales minded bunch and it starts at the top with Regional Mgrs, who are lemmings at best. RMs dont even know how to estimate work and proceed to hack away at maintenance contract margin and then cheat the customer at 60% gross margin and above on upgrades. This is a dishonest and scared group of employees who do not know how to manage good people. As a result morale couldnt be poorer at this time. i and many others are only biding time until we can find a more rewarding and respectful company who cares about those who helped to build it.
    Watch as the CEO beefs up bottom line by cutting out overhead, makes it look attractive and then walks away with huge money.

    Advice to Management

    yah right. realty is not on their agenda.
