I worked at Intermountain Electric full-time (less than a year)

Pros

100% paid health insurance. Willing to use technology.

Cons

This company is incredibly disorganized and unstable. Management is completely disconnected from what is happening at the lower levels and reactive to all situations. It's chaotic at best planning is not done effectively here. Accounting driven decision making.

The biggest issue working here is that management does not value their employees. They could care less about their people. I honestly mean that! I have never worked for a company that cared less about their people's needs. Everything from HR problems to management scheming to take money from you through PTO schemes 60 day waiting periods for health insurance. It's always what works best for them.

Another major issue is that they go through such huge swings in revenue. That makes them very unstable. Some years they are 30 mil in revenue and the next year 70 mil. It makes for an unstable work environment. 90% of the people that work there are less than 2 years. Management seems to fluctuate every two years as well. There is little stability that allows the company to develop processes and culture. It's truly chaotic at best!

There are allot of very dissatisfied employees at the office. Low morale. Lots of safety incidents in the field.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get more involved with daily activities. Understand what is happening at the front lines. Slow down and develop your systems.

    I have been working at Intermountain Electric full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    100% health coverage.
    Willing to use the newest programs and looking at improving through trying new options.
    Very friendly.
    Whatever you need to get the job done, it's there if you need it.

    Cons

    That being said, whatever you need to do your job, you may get it, BUT it will take a bit of action on your part to get what you need.
    There is a serious lack of follow through from the top down, a lot of flakey stuff happening.
    If person A is to get this, that , and so on upon getting hired, persons B,C and D should likewise get the exact same.
    I.T. is a serious hindrance.. Excuses, no answers, never around when needed... Either over worked and under paid or just doesn't like his job....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to those that actually do the work. You might learn a thing or two....

    Former Employee - BIM/VDC Revit MEP Detailer in Denver, CO
    Former Employee - BIM/VDC Revit MEP Detailer in Denver, CO

    I worked at Intermountain Electric full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Paid for the insurance for you and your family and there was always work to be done..

    Cons

    Lack of concern for the employee or explanation of what they are to be doing and maintaining a clearly defined role. An expectation of more but are extremely cheap on training, equipment, and salary expecting to get experience for a novice price.
    Lack of overall experience of using Revit MEP and/or other programs that are being used for BIM. Lack of experienced people being put in charge who did not have the qualifications or the experience or in some cases the knowledge to do the job.
    There was the expectation that you would give time by coming in early and leaving late with out being paid if you wanted to advance or get a promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who actually know what they are doing and don't just stick bodies into a hole hoping that they will somehow manage to straighten the ship and stop the leak. You are making a claim that you are redefining the way BIM and Fabrication are used in construction yet you can't substantiate your claim and deliver.

    When an employee calls/emails to talk to you after you have said you have an open door, follow through don't just brush them off and then tell them you will call, that is something you expect a teenager to do to a date not for a CEO to do to an employee after stating on a company wide conference call that he wants to hear from anybody and everybody about problems.
