Pros

Good benefits, company vehicle (for their use only), decent pay, co-workers are great, but also overstressed. Excellent products, 401k, sick pay, vacation (when they allow it). When the employees are left alone to do their job, they all work their butts off, when they think they are getting the shaft, they will work like they think they are getting the shaft.

Cons

Upper management requires/encourages district management to use GPS as a tool to enforce shady labor practices. Corporate management sends out a notification to district managers, and puts them on a naughty list when an employee does not leave their home 30 minutes before start of a shift, even if their work site may be 10 minutes from their home. This has created a policy of making people work without compensation before the normal start time. Also, don't question their policies with corporate HR , or expect retaliation of yourself and your co-workers with even longer working hours supposedly mandated by corporate HR. Their inspection software is from the 80's making for inefficient use of time and extra work. Their ACE system is a joke, it is difficult to use adds extra workload for everyone. Since Tyco took over there have been no positives for service people- Longer hours without pay, loss of unused vacation payouts/banking, elimination of the overtime after 8 hours, or weekends/holidays, loss of use on personal vehicles.

Advice to Management

Turn off the GPS, or at least quit being heavy handed. Pay your employees for working. Quit think your low-level employees are out to screw the company. Only people screwing up this company is the management and thats you

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Most people are nice and down-to-earth

    Cons

    Management does not care about "the little people" that do all the work; those promoted are those who kiss the most butt.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your upper management -- most Directors should not be in those positions
