I worked at Commissioning Agents full-time (less than an year)

Pros

They pay you while you are "on the bench" waiting to be sent out for work.
Quick, Weekly reimbursements on all travel expenses
Provides a good quality company laptop for travel
Weekly business status reports from President keeps employees informed
Company is employee owned
Office staff is polite and professional.
Flexible to employee vacations, off-time, and travel arrangements except change fees.

Cons

Little say if any, in assignments.
Assignments are often not good use of your talents and skill sets.
Little communication from management on your personal situation, a ton of communication on company business
You need to wait 2 years to get full vesting for your profit sharing. There is no in-between levels.
Very particular rules on travel reimbursements (ex: must provide boarding passes in addition to receipts)
Health care plan options could be improved
Does not pay airfare change fees if employee has good personal reasons

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer quality health care plans, since this is an employee owned company, pay for it in full
Offer other better benefits
Do not require boarding passes for airfare reimbursement. Hardly anyone else does
Re-decorate or consider a new home corporate office. The existing one does not present a good image.
Offer to pay change fees if an employee breaks their leg or their kid is in the hospital the night before the flight.
Some client site managers need to be removed or re-evaluated for their performance and professionalism, especially to the site contractors.
