    I worked at EquipNet full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very open and relaxed environment. Flat structure, so you don't have to go through a million people to get stuff done. Your ideas will get heard and you have the liberty to take the initiative on your projects.

    Cons

    Pay could be better for what they expect of you sometimes. Because there is such a flat structure it can work to a disadvantage when it comes to responsibilities. There is also no room to climb the corporate latter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees, let them know they are appreciated. Office culture needs some work improving.

    I worked at EquipNet full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to "get your feet wet" in your prospective field. Provides good opportunities for travel for those who desire to. Good benefits and yearly outings. Fun work environment and many genuinely good people.

    Cons

    Not much room for upward movement. Laid back work environment breeds unprofessionalism and complacency. Management either unable or incapable of searching for proactive solutions; instead relies too heavily on entry level employees to enact change. Occasional severe disorganization and mismanagement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward employees who deserve to be rewarded, and don't be afraid to hold your employees accountable. Take ownership of problems instead of passing the buck, and be willing to develop and implement proactive solutions.

    I have been working at EquipNet

    Pros

    EquipNet offers good entry level work, a fun culture and great benefits. I usually like going to work every day.

    Cons

    No way to move up in the company. Raises and bonuses are inconsistent from one department to another, and not given out on schedule, which doesn't coincide with the "fair and consistent values.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value employees more by establishing a standard practice for awarding raises and bonuses every year. EquipNet is large enough that the company can do that now.

    Pros

    Young company, lots of energy
    great place for recent grads to learn the ropes of the professional world
    yearly company outings that help bring the employees closer

    Cons

    Some of the managers who have been there for years and years are alittle stuck in their ways and can stifle an employees growth and contribution.

    some spurts of wild disorganization

    low salaries but great comprehensive benefits package

    global company that appreciates but doesn't necessarily reward diversity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your hardworking staff! Its one of your best resources and conduits toward growth!

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Every sat is off.

    Cons

    no regular salary review, no way to monitor your contribution to company, if you work extra by your wish there is no appreciation at all. True person or talent never gets appreciation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to appreciate the one who truly deserves.

    I worked at EquipNet

    Pros

    Small growing company. Good location if you work south of town. Lots of entry level jobs. You'll get to work.

    Cons

    You will be underpaid and uninspired. It's hard to get much done. Big company, cog in the machine atmosphere despite small size. Did I mention they do everything cheap?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I didn't enjoy my short time at Equipnet. There are many companies more inspiring and worker friendly. Stop being so cheap and mediocre.
