Pros

This company went through tremendous turmoil during the great recession, and being tied to the construction industry, has been slow to recover. The former CEO (think about the Steve Carrell character from 'The Office') chased away all of the talent, and they are slowly picking up the pieces. It would be a great opportunity for someone to go in and help turn the place around. It's a long-time Baltimore-based company with a great history prior to the former president's era. They re-located to the Fells Point area of Baltimore, an attraction to some, a challenge for most tenured employees.

Cons

A big challenge still lies ahead to execute a complete turn-around.

Advice to Management

Sometimes you need to take a short-term hit to deliver long term results. Invest in infrastructure, people and training and wait for the results. Stop being slaves to lean six sigma, and fix the real problems.

    Pros

    good compensation, easy job, great hours

    Cons

    small office staff ( my branch only had 6 people), had to bring in people for training ( that rushed to leave ), new drivers are expected to be able to take on the full job from day one no matter what they have done before, getting equipment fixed is like pulling teeth, trucks do not work for job expected ( either too big, or not able to go where needed ), just like a construction job over the winter, have to do odd jobs to make hours

    Advice to Management

    take time to make sure new employees are properly trained, equipment is properly maintained( ie. keep materials for minor repairs like lights and fluids) on hand
