Pros

Decent pay. Negotiate hard coming in because what you get is what you get...with a minor COLA every year. If you are a younger applicant just starting your career then it is an excellent move. As far as other companies in the sector and geographic location (DC/Baltimore metro) it is above average for pay but still below union scale.

Cons

I.T. is horrible. Your computer/laptop is a detriment to production and is one step above a boat anchor. At time of this posting (September 22nd 2013) still using XP as the operating system. 30 minute boot times are not uncommon when connected to corporate network. I hate my company issued vehicle. It is not practical for the work I perform.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consolidate consolidate consolidate. In Beltsville Maryland there is an office full of people, if we really need that much overhead and management then there is an issue. Hopefully new CEO realizes no future in highly fragmented system. If your field service people spend a majority of time in their vehicle, some form of comfort should come into the equation. Then again the hardest seats on an airline I've ever experienced is Lufthansa. Maybe it's a German thing? Also Joe Kaeser is Chief Executive Officer, Siemens AG, Munich since August 1, 2013 anyone giving the former CEO a thumbs up should be questioned. Glassdoor needs to update this selection as my option is choosing a thumbs up or thumbs down for the past CEO.
