    Former Employee - Senior Field Technician in Greeley, CO

    I worked at Terracon full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefit package. Staff level personnel have decent security.

    Cons

    Non-staff level personnel considered expendable. Work trucks unsafe, not equipped to drive on jobsites, or in winter. Poor work/life balance. Non-chargeable time used AGAINST you, even if it's for a good reason like continuing education, holiday, kids snow day, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your field personnel are human beings, not just numbers. We work virtually on call during the summer months, yet are the first to be fired if work slows down in the winter. Rear-wheel, 2 WD vehicles are the unsafest types of vehicles in winter, or in mud season. Don't count certification and holidays as non-chargeable time. Try to keep up with the cost-of-living when doling out raises.

    I worked at Terracon full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Average compensation, work is plentiful but low tech.

    Cons

    Low ethical standards, culture driven by bloated corporate hacks, innovative thinking discouraged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house in Corporate Office. Decentralize decision making and allow those working with clients to do their job.
