Pros

You get to see a lot of interesting businesses/buildings. The company is really a leader in its field as you will not find a superior fire safety product out there. The management really seems to care about its employees (most of the time).

Cons

While the company gives you vehicles to use, up to one hour of travel each way is not compensated. If your job location is far from the office expect an 11 hour day while only being paid for 8 hours. The dispatching system isn't the most organized and can cause customers to already be upset upon arrival.

Advice to Management

Give new inspectors better standardized training instead of on the field observation. If you're with an inspector who doesn't know what he's doing you're going to learn how to do things the incorrect way.

    Cons

    Promotions do not seem merit based

    Advice to Management

    Look at the qaulity of work as the determining factor for salary and promotions. While being able to maneuver politically is fine quality of work should take the top spot.

  2. Tough but somewhat rewarding place
