    I have been working at ProAutomated full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company has taken great care of me. I have management that cares about my input and responds to it. There have been many opportunities for the field service team to make a decision about how to do something, and management went with the team recommendation. Constantly working to get us home earlier to see family, and make sure our opportunities with family are improving.

    Cons

    Traveling with a family at home can be tough. Being stuck in airports because of layovers has gotten me home a couple times on Saturday afternoon, but that's air travel for you.

    Pros

    Company Culture is great.

    People here are awesome.

    Work is exciting, new experience everyday.

    Treats their employees great once you get out in the field.

    Cons

    This company relies on other companies for contracts. It seems like there biggest contract is trying to phase them out, which caused a lack of work, leading them to lay-off their new hires.

    During training, the company enjoyed scaring their new hires, constantly warning them that they may be fired tomorrow. This created competition that ended up being pointless because they let us all go anyway.

    Company CEO posting a "5-star rating" on Glassdoor about his own company shortly after laying off employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your employees better.

    Don't threaten to fire your new hew hires everyday if they learn exactly the way you want them to.

    During the interview I asked the question, "how is the job-security in this position." Which I received a strong reply explaining to me that the company is trying to double in the next year.

    Pros

    Pro Automated allows great opportunity for exposure to a variety of professions- architects, engineers, electricians, AV pros, and contractors of all sorts. Every day of work is different, and each project has unique challenges. It is a great mix of white collar/blue collar experience.

    Cons

    The travel can become a bit taxing, but that is being eased as the company grows and people can travel more within a specific region.
