I have been working at Tradesmen International full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Lots of autonomy. However easy to lose focus on pertinent business functions which effects your pocket. As long as you can stay disciplined and really work hard you can make good money.

Cons

Low pay until you build up business

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I hate to say it but i may be beneficial to have a bit more micromanaging.

    I worked at Tradesmen International full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Getting out of the office and getting a paycheck (although it's barely above minimum wage) are really the only "positive" things if you could call them that.

    Cons

    Crappy office located in Fife. Employee desks are directly across from the restrooms so when people "do their business" you have the good fortune of knowing (on all accounts). Field reps still required to go back to the office at the end of the day. Micromanaging environment. Required to use personal cell phone (vs. company provided). Manual administrative processes thrive - primarily because of the antiquated technology. Ultimately - big mistake.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get qualified people, who actually HAVE experience managing people. Managers should empower and mentor employees NOT micromanage them.
