    I have been working at Rosendin Electric full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Nothing to report for this company. I they treat employees with 2% pay increase.

    Cons

    The culture at Rosendin is really bad. With a pay increase between 2 - 3% it's really bad even though the company continues to buy 5k laptops,. iPhones, iPads and Droids. Users are still not getting the right pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to start taking care of their employees.

    I have been working at Rosendin Electric as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Rosendin is a company that strives to not only enhance the quality of professional skills and knowledge, of each of its employees; it, also strives to do the same for those working on assignment as contractors.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only advice I would give, would be to allow employees who are hired to provide administrative support to a project’s onsite senior project manager/electrical team with the option to work onsite with the team and become involved in the project’s day-to-day operations and special projects. I say this from experience because Rosendin gave me this priceless opportunity in 2007 when I was hired to work as a contractor assigned to provide administrative support to Rosendin’s electrical team working onsite at the UC Berkeley campus during construction of the Sutardja Dai Hall, part of the CITRIS/Davis Hall North Project. Initially I worked as an administrative assistant, and later was given special projects to coordinate by the onsite senior project manager. The assigned projects required frequent interaction with the project’s general contractor, university professionals, subcontractors, various construction trades and other levels of professional titles, which made it mandatory for me to learn how to work as a true team player and its importance while participating in the process project management. Because of Rosendin, I learned to lead and manage myself as an individual working with others that totaled in numbers on a scale larger than I had ever worked with before. Upon its completion, working on this project with Rosendin represented and continues to represent my most memorable and rewarding work experience.

    I worked at Rosendin Electric full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits are great for employees/families

    Cons

    - I was discriminated against for a promotion due to my health

    - Management highly favors long time employees whom are friends with

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your personal friendships outside of the office. Learn to listen to your employees, just because someone is in a management/supervisor role does not mean they are capable of the duties

    Pros

    Great benefits for all company employees.

    Cons

    -Production focused.
    -Highly political.
    -Care about bottom line.
    -No loyalty to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your project managers and staff the tools to be successful and not look at them as "non-productive" overhead. Use earn value as a tool on your projects to help see how efficient the teams are spending labor dollars. Change the field bonus incentive model so it forces teams to be work collaboratively.

    I worked at Rosendin Electric

    Pros

    Good Benefits - vacation time, salary, and health care. I enjoyed working with most of the co-workers. Some opportunity for advancement

    Cons

    Management at the Virginia office is uncommunicative and not productive. They don't listen to their employees and it has cost them quite a bit of business.
