    Pros

    Preston is a good company doing good work in the community. The people at Preston, including Mike Preston were great to work with and I was sad to leave. Hard working and interested in helping each other succeed.

    Cons

    Preston is a smaller company, with that is going to be a smaller paycheck, and sometimes longer hours to get the work done.


  2. Working here was a mistake

    Pros

    Plenty of work if you need to stay busy, management skills can be developed, field personnel are great folks.

    Cons

    Pay was extremely low for industry standard, atrocious hours, constant changes in "team" structures, fraternity-like management style. Technical skills not put to use. Incentives not offered. Out-of-touch leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Unwavering chaos is an unmovable barrier to efficiency. While accepting misplaced credit for team successes, acknowledge and take responsibility for your individual shortcomings.


  3. Awesome company!

    Pros

    Great team environment, upper management provides great mentoring, great salary in a hard economy, has a really great development plan for new employees, hard work pays off. This is definitely the kind of place where if you work hard you get recognized!

    Cons

    It can be hard to get into upper management due to Preston's ability to foster long time employees.

    Advice to Management

    Everything was really well run and it was so great being a part of the team. The culture here was so energetic and it was inspiring. So much more than what I was expecting

    Pros

    hands on work, some good employees

    Cons

    poor salary, no raises, no promotions, no bonuses, no recognition for work, too long of hours

    Advice to Management

    give back to the employees that are breaking their backs for you at 50-60hrs per week. when you break down the salaries based on actual hrs worked, most of the PEs would make more in a restaurant.
