    Pros

    Great resources, best equipment, and safety was a huge concern. Working for a structured corporation was a plus, and the senior staff was very knowledgeable of the industry.

    Cons

    Virtually no hope of career advancement within this organization. The licensed electricians that worked their had no opportunities for career advancement, while the apprentices were given alternative roles often.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within whenever possible. Also, become attentive to the career goals of your subordinates.

  3. Great People backed by a world class organization

    Pros

    As a service company they really had there act together. I worked in the Houston branch for several years and it was a fun job because of the caliber of the electricians I worked with, I miss that type of environment

    Cons

    Management Change made it harder on the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Corp. America turned another company in to a pressure cooker for all the electricians.

    Pros

    Company was privately held when I was hired, and employees were treated extremely well. Company went down after being purchased by an investment company.

    Cons

    Company went down after being purchased by an investment company. Employees benefits were eliminated, no 401(k) plan, health insurance became a Health Savings Plan.

    Pros

    Te culture within the national accounts organization fosters sharing of ideas, resources, customer responsibilities and in some cases compensation.

    Cons

    The President is narrow minded and highly political. He has an almost impossible time looking at the world as it is vs what he thinks it to be. resulting in VERY poor business decisions

    Advice to Management

    Scrap the President and get someone in place with a vison who can motiveate and manage towards the vision.
