I worked at Rosendin Electric

Pros

Large company, seeking inteligent projects, room to grow with-in the company as long as work is available. Various aspects of the electrical industry is a plus.

Cons

Mass hire, mass fire when times are good and bad. Did not have the opportunity to receive all the training as described available during new hire orientation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give your employees the tools and opportunities to grow with in. Each employee has different levels of experience. Without the employees growing professionally, the company will suffer.

    I worked at Rosendin Electric

    Pros

    The company offers great compensation for work, follows steps for providing education to workers on safety issues. Has great workers working under their foreman.

    Cons

    General foreman and forman do not approach or embrace in active talk with their workers in regards to problems with work or to encourage their staff who continue to do good work for them. They let the good staff go. They have "POWER" trips and use it to push thier employees around and find any reason to lay them off or dimiss them. Their foreman point fingers and do not take responsibility when they make bad decisions. They blame the under staff and will use it cover their own mistakes. They do not take proper measures in the process of employee lay-offs and terminations. The foreman lay people off when they need all the help they could get and then work other employees to cover for the misuse of employees after letting them go.

    Not to mention they are a Union contractor and should signify the best. They do not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management is to take active steps to ensure that all employees are getting fair and equal treatment. If mistakes are made get to the bottom of it and STOP letting the management in POWER run your job sites to the ground. A person in management is there to not only manage but to guide, help & take steps to find out what the issues are not just to sit in a trailer all day. Foreman should work together and not instruct employees to go against each others orders then blame the employee for problem. Stop finding ANY and I mean ANY reason to lay people off (this being a direct quote from your management team). This economy doesn't need it and I'm sure your job sites don't either.

    I have been working at Rosendin Electric

    Pros

    With headquarters in San Jose, Rosendin is one of the largest electrical contractors in the country with a strong presence in the West, especially in the San Francisco Bay Area. Due to its smaller, specialized divisions, Rosendin can be very flexible and competitive for a wide variety of projects, including but not limited to: wind farms, utilities and infrastructure work (Caltrans, PG&E, Caltrain, Bridges, Airports), hospitals, living and office space type buildings, water treatment plants and substations. Rosendin should easily withstand the economic downturn with its significant backlog, due to great overall planning by the company leadership. This company has been around since the early 1900's and it has become even stronger once it became 100% employee owned in the 1990's, with its greatest success taking place in the last 3-4 years.

    Additionally, Rosendin is always looking for young and intelligent employees that can be trained to learn the ropes of an industry that is comprised of a lot of aging employees. It needs "new blood" for the present, but most importantly for the future.

    Cons

    There is a downside to Rosendin's success, especially in the last two years. Rosendin has been slow to respond to the need for additional employees in certain areas, placing a greater burden on the same amount of employees to handle a significantly larger work load. This has increased the stress levels at work and it has had a negative impact on the profitability of some projects.

    For the same reason, proper and complete training at Rosendin has been lacking. New employees have received incomplete training in a rush to get them ready for their new positions. Combining the lack of training with a large workload and little support from the immediate managers, some employees have had a difficult time adjusting and becoming successful in their positions. There have also been instances of quick turnovers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The profitability of the company is very important, but overloading existing employees with work and providing incomplete training for new employees is not a smart business practice in my opinion. I understand that there's a fine line between being competitive, making a profit and keeping employees happy, but you can't hope to maintain a competent group of employees if they get burned out before they can get comfortable.
