Challenges ahead, but worth taking a look at

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Baltimore, MD

I worked at Williams Scotsman full-time for more than a year

ProsThis 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementSometimes 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
