Disorganized Corporate Success

Fire Alarm Inspector (Current Employee) Sacramento, CA

ProsLarge corporate structure with lots of money and locations

ConsBean counter mentality with a large force of paranoia forces techs and other employees to watch their back. Most of the people I work with a fearful, day to day, of losing their jobs. From the temps and new hires, all the way to the 30 year veterans, there is a sense that there could be potential, but because of inadequate management and friends hiring friends, there will not be any growth potential unless you rub the back of the right person.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart listening to your employees. Provide ON THE CLOCK training. Hire people that better the company and the other emplyees instead of who you would like to go golfing with.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
