    I worked at Goodman Networks as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great team environment within the department. Wonderful coworkers, decent pay, and excellent exposure to the industry.

    Cons

    Difficulties arise working across departments. Colleagues in other departments don't seem to understand that the compliance work needs to get done before they can proceed, and often compliance clearance timelines are beyond anyone's control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs to work on fostering trust by keeping a full-time permanent staff rather than rotating temps every 3-6 months, just when the workers are up to speed on the corporate protocols and on the substantive work, regulations, and procedures. The current model of terminating temps at or before their contracts end is counterproductive and short-sighted. The company needs to work on fostering trust among employees and across departments by keeping full-time staff in all departments, not by rotating temps in certain departments while keeping permanent employees in others. Any extra budget this might require is completely moot given the learning curve required to train new temps, and the general company-wide lack of cohesiveness every time new temps are brought on. This shortsightedness is eating into the company's bottom line without upper management realizing it.

    Pros

    Great team environment, Compassionate "family first" management, no "micro-managing" environment, project-based assignments, flexibility in schedules and ability to work remotely when needed

    Cons

    Health benefits are expensive, PTO is minimal & combines sick and vacation days into bucket...I lost 15 days of time-off after joining (only worked for last employer for 6 years), constant process confusion on on levels

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seperate PTO, allowing employees to schedule vacation time without worrying about the effects of their PTO if they were to become ill. Suggestion: 8 days vacation for entry level, plus 5 days sick time. Fidn ways to lower cost of health benefits especially for family coverage, TRAINING, TRAINING, TRAINING.

    Pros

    Fast growth, good communication between lower and middle management, usually pays annual bonuses, tries to stay on par with competition for pay scales and benefits.

    Cons

    Terrible communication from Upper Management and HR to workforce, very slow to commit to any change when it concerns pay or policy, Executives and Board are not very good at letting workforce know the direction of the company and plans for the near future. A lot of secrets that are usually known outside the company long before anyone internal knows about them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open more lines of communication between Upper, Middle and Lower Management. Have more small group discussion with individual lines of business so they feel relaxed to express ideas and concerns. Establish dates on all issues revolving pay and bonuses and stick to them. Commit to a decision based on the information you have at the time and stick with it regardless of the outcome.
