    Friendly work environment, promotes from within.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsRecognizes talent and hard work by promoting from within. Offers generous benefits to managers.

    ConsPay lower than industry standard. Work is project based making job security questionable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to employees. Don't try to dissuade a union vote using scare tactics

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good Leadership Required- as anywhere

    Office Assistant (Former Employee)

    ProsAs in any job the people you work with and the skills you learn make the difference- the first personally and the second career wise. People were good. May not have been the best career move for me but at the time it was interesting.

    ConsPay was wicked-low. There were times when I wished it was more organized and under control. Nature of the beast I guess.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive employees tools to succeed in basic stuff- there are so many variables that will be out of control- formulate a good structure/framework and expectation for the basic running of a project. A little investment up-front will save you much time and money later.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Interesting job for a temporary position.

    Electric Meter Technician (Former Employee)
    Portland, ME

    ProsTons of independence after proving you can preform the work successfully.
    Everyday you got to experience different parts of the state (Maine), and interesting characters.
    Decent compensation for a temporary position.

    ConsRepetitive work.
    Limited advancement unless you desire to travel to new contracts in different states.
    Supervisors stretched thin and ragged, while tech's had more freedom.
    Most tech's were milking the job, while a select few actually performed most of the work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more supervisors.

    Utility Meter Technician -hopeful to dissatisfied

    Utility Meter Technician (Current Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsAbove average starting rate 15.50 at time of this review.Time and half after 40 hours.
    Benefits after 90 days.Training provided,tools,vehicle.Personal Protective Equipment -excellent

    ConsMandatory 2 saturdays on before one off(can work all saturdays)There is a quota of installs daily. Management encourges staying in field to meet quota without payment for additional time spent.Management uses a no walls style disipline ,your business is available for anyone else within hearing distant.Management will remind you that 1000's of people want your job and you should get the job done or you will be let go.This is a project job no guarentee of employment after the project is complete.June,July,August hot months to be wearing t-shirt and long sleeve fire retardant shirt and heavy fire retardant jeans in addition to hard hat with shield when in front of meter change out,boots and special gloves also worn.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBuy decent printers and cartridges for supervisors so they can stop using that excuse for not getting stuff printed.Make sure trainers are all training the same way.Make and distribute instructions on how to best utilize handhelds & any tips that are proven to decrease time between installs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
