    Pros

    Able to work from at least once a week. Also, during weather emergencies, it nice to know you can still work, without having to be short on your paycheck or have to use personal time to cover the paycheck.

    Cons

    Not everyone is treated the same. People that are close to those with power, gets special treatment. Must work every other Saturday. Just about all extra benefits, have been taken away. "Do as I say, not as I do" attitude from management. No grace-period for tardiness. One minute late and it goes against you.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. I do not believe, I've actually met someone in management that actually deserved to be there. Most of them, think they know a lot, but in time, you'll learn that they don't. You'll get more results from employees, if you practice, what you preach.

    Pros

    Nice people, company treats people in a professional manner and with respect, all things considered. The building is nice too.

    Cons

    Company is barely hanging on financially, sales are declining and they don't have the plan or resources to turn it around. Exec team is not working well together.

    Advice to Management

    Some new top management is probably a good idea.

    Pros

    There are no more pros. The benefits use to keep me here, not so much now.

    Cons

    No way to move up, LoJack becomes your life, 24/7 if you are in management. Bad financial decisions were taken out on employees. In the past 3-4 years this is what has been taken away; First benefits, 401K match reduces, then no match at all. Hourly workers bonuses were taken away, then the 40 hour guarantee, now it's 35. And then finally, the last straw, salaried employees were given a 12 .5 % pay cut! And this all after 4 years of no raises at all. Only a select few got raises during the last few years, and that was to bring then closer to cost of living!
    Management states the pay cut is for a minimum of 4 months. Even if things get better, do you really think after four months we will get our 12.5 % back.......not even. For years it's been "just hang on, thing will get better". Yea right. I got sick of the promises.
    Here's the kicker, after all the pay cuts, the stock drops and upper managers, board members etc buy up the stock and the stock goes up. Hmm, who's making all the money here. They're taking from the mouths of the hard working employees. Don't even think of going to work here, they;ll screw you too.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new CEO, sorry decision making and excuses from management doesn't pay the bills.

    Pros

    Great people and good company to gain experience.

    Cons

    Lower than average pay for the same type of position in the area. Management does not communicate to their employees making it difficult to do your job or know when your doing a good job. Tough place to work if your a woman as it's very "old boys network" and you get treated like a secretary regardless of your position. Constant layoffs. No career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of CEO and actually hire someone with management experience. Speak to your employees.

    Pros

    New product
    Growth opportunities if you know the right people
    Pay is not bad
    Nice people- some of them

    Cons

    Very political
    Can't give feedback
    Management isn't supportive
    Constant lay offs
    Lots of gossip
    HR is absolutely terrible
    Clique-y

    Advice to Management

    They need to be opened minded. They are very worried about everyone being a certain age to be in certain positions. Need to think outside of the box
    Need to train people more before throwing them to the wolves
    Don't allow for much team work

    Pros

    Good people to work with and a great place to learn a lot by wearing multiple hats. It has been a stable company for many many years and has a lot of strong leadership.

    Cons

    Lack of organization in some areas, and a lot of cost cutting in areas that directly impact the level of service the company can provide.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to minimize the impact to employees so top talent is not lost.

    Pros

    Working from home the majority of the time. Company car. Pride in the product.

    Cons

    The company is a little slow to adapt to new technology. Communication can be difficult at times.

    Advice to Management

    Standard operating procedures should be outlined more clearly.

    Pros

    Tuition Reimbursement
    Company vehicle
    Company phone
    Provide uniform reimburse yearly for new pants

    Cons

    Drive 250-300 miles a day, can't take lunch if you want to finish on time
    Will not say no to work, hours are 8am-430pm and will issue you a job 60 miles away at 415 if they need to and you can't refuse
    GPS tracked vehicles to make sure you leave you home on time and don't idle more than 10 minutes a day
    Last week of every month is mandatory 6 day week, no work/life balance, forced overtime

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking same day installs after 2PM to allow travel time
    Bring back recovery bonuses
    Take care of the technicians
    Use to love going to work everyday, but being macro managed is killing moral
