    Exciting

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat company with exciting opportunities. Traveled around the United States visiting many places I would otherwise not ever visit.

    ConsLots of travel. At times, could be too much on the road time. Being great distances made getting home a challenge sometimes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementN/A

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Started out good, but ended bad.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI worked for Taggart before they were bought out by Forge. In 2011 when I started with the company things were great. Compensation was competitive.

    ConsMy particular department didn't pay mileage for any trips home(while other management departments did) during the entire time I worked on the road for them. This left me extremely alienated from family. By mid 2013 the company had been severely miss managed and was losing money as a result. Field management were either being laid off (left and right) or jumping ship before the crash and burn. The feeling of instability was immense so I moved on as well. From what I hear things are much better since Forge took over.
