Pros

New campus, access to latest technologies, growth and career advancement

Cons

single line of business versus multi product provider like a Comcast/Verizon

Advice to Management

Senior leadership should be more visible and open to hearing ideas from line employees. Consider selecting employees for short term stretch assignments in different areas.

    Pros

    Great benefits, vacation and sick time. Pay is competitive. Profit sharing lately has been awesome!

    Cons

    Rules constantly change. Sometimes how much we work and don't get paid for since we are piece rate. Dynamic dispatch needs some work even after a year of using them.

    Advice to Management

    Less working for free. And don't wish wash stick to what you said right or wrong don't back track and throw your installers under the bus!

    Pros

    Decent money, Other than that there is not much positive and even the money stopped being as good because management kept taking away pay for things while still expecting us to do the work.

    Cons

    Do not value their employees
    The work conditions can be extremely rough
    They are continually dropping pay
    The hours can be extremely long
    You can be home and done for the day and they will call you back in to do a job. Essentially they expect you to be on call 24/7

    Advice to Management

    Organize, this will really lighten the load on your employees. Also learn to value experience.
