I worked at Butler America full-time

Pros

Flexible work schedule, mid management cares about employees and pleasing the customer, dedicated employees makes the work environment a good place to work.

Cons

High turn over especially of sales staff, low growth opportunities, few customers to support, old equipment, substandard working equipment (old desks, chairs etc) senior management does not communicate well, poor benefits, salary is not competitive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better benefits, better communication, retain sales talent. Update the office with working desks and chairs.

    I worked at Butler America full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company offers a very flexible schedule to both full time employees and interns. Office environment is fun and friendly.

    Cons

    Being a smaller company and a contractor, the benefits and pay are not the best. Being located in West Lafayette, you get the excuse "low cost of living" which translates to a smaller paycheck than you otherwise deserve. Experienced engineers do not feel valued and feel like they are replaceable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With a large number of employees <2 years experience, some people treat work like a classroom and talk/watch videos on their phone/games on their phones. Need to hire people who will focus and stay on task. Also need to make employees feel valuable and needed or else they will find better opportunities.

    I have been working at Butler America as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    It's a pretty simple job to get started while completing school, there is very little formal training. Butler offers flexible hours to their interns and almost always makes an offer upon graduation.

    Cons

    There isn't much opportunity to "advance" at this company. The pay and benefits are fair but not very competitive.
