    Current Employee - Field Technician II/Assistant Project Manager in Topeka, KS

    Pros

    -Job duties were variable, making employees very diverse and never bored.
    -Minimal supervision
    -Good pay and benefits
    -Many opportunities to pick up hours when needed
    -Approval of vacation/sick time was never a problem
    -I worked in three offices. Two of the three had fantastic coworkers and top-notch management who showed support and recognized a job well done.
    -Very concerned with employee safety.

    Cons

    -Schedule was slightly unpredictable and unbalanced (3 hours one day, 15 the next, or 14 hours for 6 days in a row then 4 or 5 for the next week, etc.).
    -Big promises for career advancement with little follow through.
    -Individual offices varied GREATLY with management style. As I said, I worked for three offices. One of the three was so horrible that I tried to transfer back to a previous office, even knowing that I would most likely get laid off (I conveniently got "downsized" as a result). Management was incompetent - lousy sense of organization and lacked basic communication skills. Subordinates were often blamed for the office manager's mistakes.
    -Workplace issues often took a very long time to resolve. They had a long ladder to climb to get to the corporate office to someone who could analyze and fix a problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acquiring new offices to diversify may make sense for the company, but cutting your already existing workforce to do it doesn't seem to be a great way to go about it. Also, try to look inside each office from time to time - to make sure your employees are satisfied with their work. And lastly, never forget that how profitable an office is doesn't always equal how well it's run. Try to remember these things instead of just thinking of the company as the whole, national conglomerate that it is.
