Pros

EMS is new and has a lot of potential however they will not retain good talent if they continue to do business as they do.

Cons

processes are broken, no training, inefficient, manual work that could be automated but people refuse to change, no promotion path or advancement structure, low end of compensation range, rigid structure, don't act like they care about their employees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

there needs to be training for managers, i dont know how many of them got in their roles but they do not know how to effectively manage / develop their employees

    Pros

    Great opportunities to learn things outside of your job function because it is a small company.

    Cons

    There could be improvements in a couple areas: management does not take interest in career development or growth of the employees, and sometimes there is a lack in communication of expected goals.

    Pros

    It's a great stepping stone to a better job. You get most of the experience's you need for other employment. If you want to pay off your student loans this may be the place to be for you.

    Cons

    If you want to move up in the company do something wrong, and get in trouble. You will get promoted. If you do your job right, expect to stay where you are. Don't expect much when it comes to raises....maybe 3-4% If you get promoted, expect to get payed for your promotion years later. REALLY. They don't want to pay for your promotion, even though you hold a new title in the company. Watch your pay, and there fuzzy math when on deployment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone prefers deploying than staying at home, because it sucks at the home sites. I can't tell if you make it miserable at home to motivate people to deploy. We all just want to stay away from management and do our jobs.
