    Pros

    Stepping stone to a new role with General Electric direct or another Energy or Logistics firm. This is at best an entry level opportunity until you can get your big boy pants on!

    Cons

    Management is horrible and Human Resources is non existent, no training and no growth . Once economy improves there goes your resources . No better than a staffing agency

    Advice to Management

    Value the resources you have hired as you are a service provider. No corporate identity, high corporate mistrust, site management incompetent micro managers

    Pros

    Excellent company to work for, great opportunity to excels, It was 10 years of hard working environment, great potential for young person

    Cons

    better team coordination, better structure, too much early advancement for young and inexperience, too much buddy buddy leadership. Advancement should based on the maturity and leadership ability along with knowledge. Leaders must separated them self from the team they lead during after duty hours.

    Pros

    Learn about the energy industry, improve on objective work practices and working with little supervision, support staff bonuses. Utilize high-end software and database applications.

    Cons

    Company may have grown too fast, no real extensive tasks and procedures to follow, particularly for the most important business aspect - purchase orders/billing. Support staff salary is half that of middle management, yet support staff is expected to guide management through established task and procedures. Employees are required to take vacation within the year or lose the hours accrued.

    Advice to Management

    For any strategic planning, look to the end user (entry level staff) for guidance.

    Pros

    Weekly pay, great benefits, excellent time off plan from starting day.

    Cons

    If you have issues with management you can almost guarantee your professional work will not overcome the personal opinion of management. Once you are labeled a problem or person who stands up for themselves you will always be a target.

    Advice to Management

    Building company moral would be very beneficial to helping secure contracts and additional responsibility. HR and management are not there to resolve employee issues, most concerns are swept under the rug and a lot if decisions are made on personal basis not professional achievements.

    Pros

    Independent work environment. Fair pay. Great benefits include, medical, dental, eye, life, 401K match, as well as other packages. The employee contribution was minimal compared to past employers. In conjunction with GE, the company provides employee with annual review. HR representative is on site in case someone is in need of assistance.

    Cons

    Position is not permanent (contractor status). There's no feeling that you're part of a company team. Departure policy dictates they cannot provide references to anyone. When hired for a one year term, the maximum extension you can get is another 6-months (18-months total). After which, you MUST take a 3-month layoff before being considered for rehire. No promises on rehire.
