Pros

Decent pay, benifits, and somewhat flexible work schedule. They are a growing company, and there is opportunity for growth here for those who are seeking to work in this business.

Cons

-Work and responsibility overload. You are under a lot of pressure not only from the customers, and trying to get your work done, but also under a great deal of pressure to perform from upper management. It all leads to mis-management and mistakes being made. You are also held accountable for things that you have no control over. -It's a big corporate company. They say they treat their employees well, but like any large corporation, they are all about making money and pleasing their investors before pleasing their own people. You feel like "just a number" here, and that your job is on the line when things get tough. -Bad communication and poor planning (which is caused by the things mentioned above.) You're constantly scrambling like a mad man to get something done, because something wasn't communicated, or you found out last minute, or someone dropped the ball. These things definitely happen everywhere, but I found myself working in this environment almost all the time...

Advice to Management

This advice is directed towards the Executive Management of the entire Emcor Corporation. You need to find a way to take some pressure off all the managers below you, who should in turn do the same thing to the managers below them, and so on, right down the whole chain of command. You have a lot of very good people working at Emcor who are very talented at what they do. If you want to retain them, then make them happier, and they will grow the business for you. People who are well educated, tallented, and goal oriented (like a lot of the people within Emcor) definitely want to do a good job, and are the types of people who take pride in their work. But, if they're overloaded, overstressed, and just unhappy all together, then they can't work to their full potential. It also results in mistakes being made, profit margins reduced, money and even customers lost. Then, you hold them accountable, beat them up for it, and make them feel completely defeated in every way. Ever notice why younger people aren't staying with the company? It's because they don't like what they see here. After they get hired, they're looking to move on in a year or two. You need to find a way to retain these younger people who come to work for the company. They are the key to the company's future. Take a look around the corner.... you've got a lot of long term employees who've been with the company 25-30+ years (employed back when things were known as "the good old days" of the business.) Guess what? They're all looking to retire soon... and you're going to need experienced younger people to step up into their shoes when they're gone. Find a way to do this, and it will benifit Emcor highly.

    Pros

    Flexible with your schedule. Its a job in this rough economy.

    Cons

    Will give you added responsibilty without pay increase. Have to beg for a pay increase. Training is never receieved. Partially reasoning is because operation engineer is not familiar with our individual jobs so he is not aware of how to support us with proper training.The manager has a temper beyond belief. Cares less about the people that work under him. VERY obvious. Supervisors will "throw you under the bus" if they do not like you. Biggest CON is the unethical behavior displayed.

    Advice to Management

    Take some business classes to understand the ethics and knowledge in regard to properly work with employees.
