    I have been working at Rosendin Electric full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been with Rosendin many years I've seen good years and not so great years but the company was always good.. people liked working here. we appreciated our leadership and our Company president who was the Face of the company and we all knew him..it seemed as though he cared not just about the company but about the people who worked within it.. and that made people care about what they did and how they did it.. Rosendin was going places and we were all part of it.. we felt appreciated and valuable to the companies success..

    Cons

    Several years ago we got a new company president.. who he is.. most employees only know by name as the man is a ghost, who cares not about the employees. his new bottom line policies along with his complete failure to become the next face and responsible person for the success or failures of Rosendin shows it .. he is from the operations side of the business and only the bottom line matters.. it seems he feels as though employees, moral, determination, motivation and faith in company leadership is some else's responsibility.. over the past two years the employees under his leadership and policies have lost 24% of their ESOP plan.. what was once Rosedins selling point to new / potential employees as well as a reason to stay and work harder.. is dwindling away. Rosendin is no longer one of the best companies to work for in the bay area.. we haven't been in a few years now.. FYI leadership and success of a company starts at the top.. its also where the money is lost.. bad decisions and no responsibility... Who runs Rosendin who is this Ghost .. maybe there's a reason for his staying in the background.. I don't know all I know is the attitude and policies have reached the lower levels of this company.. and all you have to do is look around, listen and you will see and hear what employees really think about the new Rosendin..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    President of Rosendin Try Toms example that seemed to resonate with folks.. and that is when you make a decision that effects the team ask yourself.... what if it was me? instead of glad it's not me.. When you're in your next executive meeting look around see how your leadership has made its way from those around you to those under them..

    I worked at Rosendin Electric full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Use to be a great place to work.
    Promotions from within. Management cared about their staff

    Cons

    Management change.
    Some managers have too big of heads. Think they are better than everyone else. Willing to cut off their noses to spite their faces.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management training. Listen to complaints dont just slap management on the wrist or wipe it under the rug. Especially harassment issues from supervisors. Managers taking advantage of their position.

    Cons

    to many people in management in charge over every project and not enough support for the lower-ended people on projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get project teams to communicate better among each other. the left hand never knows what the right hand is doing.

    I have been working at Rosendin Electric full-time (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 (more than an 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.
