    Pros

    Lots of work and decent pay

    Cons

    Zero work life balance, no training opportunities, poor communication and undervaluing of employees. You are just a number at this company and your hard work and commitment will not be rewarded.

    Pros

    -Pay was OK.
    -Worked with some nice people.

    Cons

    -Office was a certified dump with overflowing plumbing, sewer flies everywhere, strange-tasting water, etc.
    -Corporate support was non-existent.
    -Market wanted all of the work but never wanted to staff accordingly.
    -General manager based performance reviews on the opinion of one of his trusted employees he brought from previous job.
    -Not allowed to participate in interviews for support staff, which led to poor hiring decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house - literally. Start from scratch, interview people BEFORE new projects are on the books and already started.

    Pros

    Plenty of work, mgt can understanding but not responsive

    Cons

    Staffing was slow (i f not at all) to increase causing customers to remove projects. More meeting on how to explain delays than fixing the source of the problem (which is resource at MasTec. Promises to hire more support never occurred after 6 months. No work / life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate how is working for you. Deliver your commitments both internal and external.

    Pros

    Good pay and excellent benefits, paid allowance for use of personal cell phone, always work to be done, flexible work hours and could work from home occasionally,

    Cons

    Constantly changing priorities, non existent process, pressure to do incomplete work, customer (turf) contract made it hard to make a profit, office environment was cubes in a converted warehouse.

    Advice to Management

    Work to change customer contract to be paid as work is completed and not rely on the customers completion to be paid.

    Pros

    If you like living in a hotel. If you are desperately unemployed and need a weekly paycheck.

    Cons

    You're very seldom home. They expect absurd efficiency, and quality at the same time. And no raises for anyone, no matter how hard you work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't come work with me at my new employer. I've already warned them I'll quit if they hire you.
