    Pros

    Salary competitive, flexability, good 401k match

    Cons

    No raises for 4+ years (even after record sales In 2014). Management can't keep "good employees". Very unprofessional and unskilled workers get the attention. Makes no sense when wanting a good reputation in the industry. In working like that, "you get what you pay for". You want crap; you get crap. Those are exactly the type of people to take advantage of the situation to lie, cheat, steal. Hence, a HUGE LOSS of business in 2015. They need to "clean house" in most markets - including managers because most have their workers do their jobs. The upper management is HORRIBLE. They are all for themselves. Instead of giving raises in their highest grossing year of the companies history, they have numerous employees employed that literally DO NOTHING and all money stays at the top. Not an exaggeration either.
    I believe the buddy system of climbing the ladder and getting promotions has caught up to them. You can't run a business without good, skilled employees that you treat with respect. Those are the people with drive and good ideas. Some don't even hear from their managers but once a month, if that. No communication. Too many other businesses waiting in the wings to easily snatch business from this company and will likely not recover. I've seen some managers not even signed on their computers for 10+ days or they arE on DO NOT DISTURB all day and not questioned. Was bound to happen! Just a matter of time and a bad deal for all employees counting on their jobs/paychecks that will be lost due to lack of competent people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house! ANYONE directly responsible for the 2014 year needs to go!! Managers, Coordinators...whomever. Take care of your good employees. At this point, Goodman has a bad reputation with their customers and vendors. Hard to bounce back.

    Pros

    Most people are great to work with, have the desire to complete work on time, take care of client and work together. Some management and upper management are great, know the industry and take care of their employees. Good benefits, decent pay.

    Cons

    Lack of training, constant fire drills, some lazy employees, some poor management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build better training program, better communication with employees.

    Pros

    Friendships continue when people move on. Everyone gets along well.
    Environment is Intense, but Never boring. Good Ethics standards.

    Cons

    Incentives to keeping qualified non-management staff is rare.
    Effective communication lags at all levels. Lack of Training, and not consistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask for, and really 'listen-to-understand' feedback from staff in day-to-day implementations and experiences with clients and vendors. Solutions to address realities can be more cost-effective than several theoretical band-aids we've seen come and go.

    Pros

    My experience with working here for the last 4 years has been a positive experience... I was able to create and expand the position that I currently hold which has been an awesome experience not to mention how much it has helped me to grown as a professional!

    I have the best team members, everyone pitches in when needed and comes together for new ideas and programs to help out both our customer base as well as our internal customers.

    We have paid holidays! Our company is based on Christian values so saying Merry Christmas or celebrating Good Friday is a valued asset to all who work at Goodman Networks.

    I have the BEST management team that will stand by you no matter what, if you make a mistake, they are there to help pull you through it and if you have a big celebration, they are there to celebrate with you as well.

    I look forward to many more years with this company,

    Cons

    We really need more PTO time, a balance for sick and a balance for vacations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just get out more and talk to the employee population... they really want to hear from you!
