    The satellite side of this business is not for everyone.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Easy to get into the satellite side of this company. High turnover, fast paced when the work volume is high. Paid by the job so it can profitable if you're motivated.

    Cons

    Paid the job so if the work is slow makes it hard to focus. Management talks change but are unwilling to make real changes to benefit the tech, ie compensation. When they are the backbone of that side of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of what takes care of you.

    I have been working at MasTec full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is at least a paycheck that barely lets you scratch and claw to eat and keep a roof over your head through this economic depression.

    Cons

    I am a capitalist, but companies like this give capitalism a bad name. It is a Godless, amoral company. 1. You must be comfortable with being a compulsive, serial liar to customers, subordinates, and superiors. 2. You must be comfortable with their living, breathing rules that are constantly changing, 99% of which are to your disadvantage. 3. Your pay gets reduced every fiscal quarter. 4. Your responsibilities are increased at least every fiscal quarter. 5. They will hold "Tech Appreciation Day", and then the next day a new set of rules come out designed to wring more work out of you for the same, but usually less, pay. 6. If anything goes wrong with your install, you will get the blame and your wallet will be penalized. Like one tech said in a prior review, "If the customer throws their remote in the pool, it is your fault.." 7. MasTec employee turnover rate is astronomical. There are over 300 former employees and technicians in the last 3 years in this small market alone. 8. They will recruit you with pie-in-the-sky promises which are utter lies, and they know it when they are telling you those lies. 9. If you are starting as a contractor, which they refer to as "sub-partners" (which sounds like it has perverse connotations to me), you will go 5-7 weeks before you get cash flow started. Meanwhile you are piling up gas expenses from driving an average of 150 miles/day for 5-7 weeks; materials you draw which will be deducted from your pay in one lump sum; penalties assessed against you for that month; and sundry other miscellaneous bull%^*( deductions. 10. If a customer refuses to pay you for a custom install, which they are required to pay, you dare not cancel the job, even though you have every right to do so. They will fire you if you do. 11. They worship at the altar of the spreadsheet. That is their god, and no other will be held before it. They tried one year to force everyone to work on Christmas day and almost had an open revolt on their hands. They've backed off on that...for now. 12. One used to make decent money in this industry, but they use the spreadsheet to incrementally cut your pay until you can barely survive anymore. Yet their earnings continue to rise. Bottom Line: You are nothing but a meatcicle to be consumed until you are a dried up bone lying on the pavement with the marrow sucked out of it. And then they reach out for some other desperate sucker to feed on. Many people have neutral or positive opinions of the CEO. The way this company is run is a direct reflection of the CEO. The CEO sets the mood and culture of a company. Obviously a lot of people here are unaware of that fact of life.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to say really. You know your company sucks.
