Good Company Ok Management. Run very lean.

Sprinkler Systems Sales (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsBenefits, Advancement Potential, Training, Plenty of opportunities.

ConsRun by accountants - financial reporting - short term thinking.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in labor, avoid running districts so lean on staff that opportunities go unquoted. You can't win work (contract) if it isn't quoted. If staff that quotes work is also tasked with project management you will end up quoting less work. Don't run too lean. It has unintended consequences.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
