    Pros

    This satellite office was located near my home which made it convenient to get to and from.

    Cons

    The people were awful. Management acted like a bunch of middle school mean girls. Very little traininga and direction.

    I worked at Everbrite full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's a job and most of the people you would be working with are great.

    Cons

    Work load, micro manager(s), project budget (if there is one), work place environment (dirty and drafty)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage or budget project time like you do costs/expenses ... employee time is a commodity not a freebie. Invest in your infrastructure.

    The new president should be asking himself, "What is the value add of my direct reports"?

    I worked at Everbrite

    Pros

    If you call over worked and under paid a pro, then work here. Management is awful and clueless. Turn over every week.

    Cons

    Pay, work load, management, company is filthy, building is a health concern.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Redo inside of building or move. Help employees instead of blaming them.

    I worked at Everbrite full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    free popcorn....lol no really that was one of their recruiting tools

    Cons

    I worked there for one year. I was released last week due to a billing error which I was willing to fix. Long story short the company made $4000 on the job but was upset they had to pay out $1000 to keep customer happy. I worked in scoreboards division, I was always trying to keep the customer happy and gain repeat business. I gave 2 schools free $100 external horns for their scoreboards. They were upset that the horns werent included, the company cut them out to save money. I was also told by senior management to lower my expectations. I lost all interest in the company after that conversation.

    Pros

    Supervisors are easy to get along with so long as you show up for work and do your job to the best of your ability. It also helps to leave your ego at home. As long as you're not a "know-it-all", you might learn something. The company's retirement contribution is generous compared to other shops. Sick time and vacation time are average. Lots of overtime.

    Cons

    The pay is pretty low. To date, it tops out around $17/hr and takes 3 years to get there. No matter what they may tell you in the interview, or what your experience is, that's the wage scale. The insurance is expensive, for what you get. The equipment is outdated and ill-maintained, for the most part. Overtime is required, until you get hired permanent, no matter what the excuse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You've been in business for how many decades? If you haven't figured it out by now, you're not trying!

    Pros

    It was a job. The people (not management) are great.

    Cons

    Really no room for moving up the ladder. They keep horrible management there forever. They are so worried about covering butt rather than doing what is right. Technology they use is so old when it comes to their product. Keep taking benefits from employees to cut back though this is one of the most productive years in a long time as far as money made. Moral is horrible. The answer from management...shut up and deal with it (not said, but pretty much what you are given). People are expected to do WAY too much workload so they all work evenings and weekends from home. Are they rewarded...yep...with more workload!

    Customers are getting mad because with that much workload things fall through the cracks. Their thoughts on it...work harder!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up! Why is your turn over so high? YOU!
