    Pros

    Your pay is good hours are about normal there is so overtime available.

    Cons

    This was a great company to work for when I first start. After about a year of me being there management that have been there for year either left or was fired. New management that is taking over is running the company down. There is no support from your supervisors or directors. There firing all the people who have worked with for years to bring in new people on lower pay. Training is a mess there is no developed process you have to creat your own. If work is not done how they want it your wrote up. Once wrote up even if you get off a write up anything you do after that can lead you to be fired.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is learn how to manage a team first training the team with a better developed process.

    Pros

    Family feel, teamwork, salary is reasonable, good company values and vision.

    Cons

    Benefits have changed over the past year and employees pay more out of pocket for expenses. Not a morale booster.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your employees. Offer relevant training for staff to continue to develop in their roles.

    Pros

    Working with the students and seeing those who get it learn is awsome. The technical staff is awsome and very knowledgeable. The work environment is very professional and clean

    Cons

    The requirements of the government funding restrict what is taught to basics, which leaves little room for new technology

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your new hires from the field a little more to guide the new curriculum.

    Pros

    Has good core businesses and attempts to communicate. Cares for employees and has good budgeting processes. Recognizes that it is top heavy and is attempting to address.

    Cons

    Good company but going through significant management change. CL&D business has turned over numerous managers. Company promises a bonus program but has consistently not delivered. Top management is not in touch with local facilities and operates from afar.HR group does not keep in touch. Buyer beware!

    Advice to Management

    Keep your promises. Get out to your locations and listen to your people.
