    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Pike Electric Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits offered are great and affordable.

    Cons

    No one ever seems to get a raise and the vacation time sucks. Management is really out of touch with what goes on in the company. People seem to be a commodity and are frequently treated as such.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what is going on in your comapny and simply make better decisions.

    I have been working at Pike Electric Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Only pros are if you get to move up the pay is good, and travelling on storm is good money.

    Cons

    Employees haven't had a cost of living in 7 years, while they give every excuse wh. Oh y. Need to improve our safety, meet our goals. We met the safety goals and still no pay raise, meanwhile they are buying companies left and right and lining thier own pockets. As far as management goes, its who you know, or who your buddies with, not the best qualified. That goes on the lower levels as well. They have gone from giving bonuses for safety to firing if your not. Most employees are there because they can't find anything else. There is alot of tell you what you want to hear, and do something else. Its not about the employees anymore. Oh yeah, if they read this they would fire or write me up for this instead of improving anything if they found out who i was.

    Advice to Management

    Get your priorities straight, without good employees you are nothing.
