    Pros

    They provided with me with the basic tools i needed to do my job correctly. They also pay very good.

    Cons

    The management don't know anything about there job. They wont take suggestions on seasoned veterans and end up doing a job twice. Also everyone of them is looking for a escape goat. They dont take safety as seriously as they try to preach.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people that are working for you. You hired them for a reason let them do the job they know how to do.

    Pros

    Co-workers were a team and usually helpful. Benefits were decent. Pay was ok, but not enough with the dangers associated with the type of work. Trying to help customer issues.

    Cons

    Installs and servicing up to 10ft tripod and 20ft of EMT with dish, grid or stinger, on top of a Chimney during high winds is not safe. Wet metal roofs are not safe. The safety program was non-existent and no support from management on safety equipment or procedures, just wing it. Dealing with irate customers due to several ISP's being bought out and added to the infrastructure, plus more subscribers on the towers without having the means to service them = us guys in the field having to do damage control.

    Advice to Management

    Coordinate Safety Teams, Be realistic about what the customer is offered vs. receiving, Improve management, update the network, and remember that the Field Techs and I/R Techs are the ones on the front lines making you the money...

    Pros

    Nice people and over all an average working environment ( cubical farm).

    Cons

    Leadership is like a ship without a rudder. Overwhelming partiality and and politics. Largest group of immature managers I have ever had the displeasure of working with. Pay was not as they promised and HR is an abomination.Will put you on notice when do everything they can to make sure you don't get your deals closed.

    Advice to Management

    Stop you good old boy games and get to work.
