I worked at Intermountain Electric full-time for 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.

    Pros

    100% paid healthcare... but you have to wait 2 full months. Despite all my cons below, I will say that they seem to have a plan moving forward. and I think things might get better.

    Cons

    Very unstable. They can't hold onto employees for more than a year. there are a few long time employees and even they will tell you how crazy things have been. they recently fired one of their VP's, lots of project managers, project coordinators, assistant project managers have cycled through over the past year or so.
    there doesn't seem to be any planning being done.. lots of their work is service work, but there is still planning that can be done on that side. the typical everyday construction has no excuse for not planning.
    Fellow employees are unhappy, everyone seems a bit depressed coming into work each day.. lots of fighting between different departments.
    Unions appear to be a dag on the company. slows things up and people don't seem to care.
    When you leave the company they will stiff you on your final paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Meet with each employee in the Denver office, ask them how things can be improved. ask them about their work loads and work flows.. there are better ways to do accounting and invoicing and project costs, etc.
