    Pros

    good pay, good benefits, nice vacation package

    Cons

    Managers do not welcome input from employees or do not listen to input from employees of the buildings that they take over. Employees that come with the building are put down, belittled, and made scapegoats when the management make mistakes. When they redo systems they do not bring the right employees into the meetings with contractors (meaning those employees who actually use the systems and know what the systems do and how the systems have to work). Management does not like to admit when they do wrong, they like to blame those under them for their mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to employees when you take over a building. Be prepared to work outside the box and realize that all buildings are not run the same way. One way of running a building may not work at another building. Be more flexible and actually listen, ask questions and do research before redoing a system.
