    Pros

    Good salary for a student

    Cons

    Very poor management, uneducated managers and most staff aswell, if you are a graduate it is always a hurtful feeling seeing that your manager can not write in plain English grammar. Plenty of lazy staff.

    Advice to Management

    The higher up management should check upon regional managers not just on sales targets but on their individual managerial skills.

    Pros

    The work itself as a field engineer is increasingly easy - if you're happy to just 'switch-off' then you can be finished quickly with few responsibilities.

    Cons

    The lack of responsibility manifests itself as basically being seen as a robot by a hugely stats-driven management sphere. There's little to be trained on anymore, as more and more work essentially boils down to either racking equipment or putting phones on desk. Field Services will be outsourced soon, no doubt.

    Advice to Management

    The moral in Field is absolutely toxic as a result of ClickMobile, van policy, OneNet and generally ignoring the wealth of talent engineers had. By entrusting all scheduling to ClickMobile & Clarify, you've effectively halved the overall engineering capacity because of wasted trips
