Former Employee - Facilities Maintenance Specialist  in  San Jose, CA
Former Employee - Facilities Maintenance Specialist in San Jose, CA

Pros

excellent health insurance, pays part of vision and safety equipment

Cons

the part of this company that contracts for facilities services is the poster child for "top-heavy"

Advice to ManagementAdvice

get rid of 'rah-rah' feely good stuff, fire about half of the administration staff, and get out of the way of the people with boots on the ground actually doing the work you are overbilling for

    Solid company, but Corporate policies and procedures make it hard to operate.

    Current Employee - Service Operations Agent  in  Dallas, TX
    Current Employee - Service Operations Agent in Dallas, TX

    Pros

    Solid benefit package, good salaries

    Cons

    Corporate micro-manages everything and workloads are overwhelming. Everyone is trying to figure out how to fit 16 hours of work into an 8 hour day, every single day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand the workforce and lighten the workload amongst your employees. Staff is spread too thin.

    Former Employee - National Field Coordinator in Milwaukee, WI

    Pros

    Select few excellent managers who are in it for the right reasons
    Paycheck
    Large Company with a Perceived Opportunity for Promotion if your number is called (but don't expect it to happen)
    Good pay for corporate salaried employees comparably speaking

    Cons

    Worked hard and performed well only to get thrown under the bus by bad management looking for an excuse to thin out employees
    Life/Work balance
    Temp to Not-Hired
    Vision Lacks Focus for Employee Growth and Promotion on Merit
    Uninspired Employee-Management Rating Efforts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are some great and not-so-great people working within this organization. Recognize who's who and who holds people back based on their own perceptions. Burnout was a major issue in the CSS department, especially with management who were either overworked or non-capable. Don't bring in so many temporary employees and offer up empty promises to all. The dollar drives the company, indeed, but don't forget the employees who give the effort to make the company should be rewarded and recognized. Knock down the dead ends and repave the roads for internal success based on qualifications and skills not the seniority and status quos.
