    Improve technology, which takes investment. Allign sales comp with goals of company. Improve the level and qualifications of middle management. There is a huge talent void within mgmt.

    Pros

    Benefits and paid holidays are the only pros.

    Cons

    Terrible place to work. No one knows what their doing in the NY location. Believe the reviews. Stay away and don't even bother. Training is non existent. It's all About how quick you do a job and quality doesn't matter. You will see first hand when you notice a bunch of temp workers with a lot of turnover. The few guys there that know what they are doing do not train properly and want you to fail. Favoritism is alive and they get away with pushing most jobs to the new guys and temps, then you are blamed for not completing quicker! If you do take this job good luck...You'll be out looking for a new Job within 3-6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe you should spend some time showing all guys there that they are needed and respected. Not just the few that's been there for only a few years. Yes accountability and productivity is important but first train properly and give employees a chance to strive and want to do well. Constant badgering to work faster will not gain you respect! Top managers are good guys but the shop manager has no idea what he is doing. All shop meetings are a big waste of time! The guy just likes to hear himself talk!

    Pros

    Good team environment, company offers incentives for good work such as extra time off, managers care and respect their employees

    Cons

    Senior Management decisions not always transparent; sometimes it seems the short-term gain is placed above the long-term benefit

    Advice to Management

    Keep staff better informed about decision-making process and planning, sometimes it's hard to know what's going on. Tone down the "corporate speak"

    Pros

    good health, dental, medical, and medical card, able to add car and home insurance to pay.

    Cons

    management is foul and full of crap.I had more time and experience but was laid off from one of the California location which was totally foul and devastating to myself and family ...but they don't give a care about you as a person or do they have loyalty to their long term employees who work their behind off. So for me the job is not worth putting a lot of your time and dedication too. they ask you to give your all but it is one sided,

    Advice to Management

    Have loyalty to your loyal employees and to keep your work at a certain level stop bring in $8.00 an hour temps to do the jobs of the well trained workers ,,,,your work has gone to the dogs. And because of the companies like Mac Grath has come in and taken over with better quality work .

    Pros

    Comfortable work furniture, trendy work area, clean building. Downtown location makes great for commute. Right near water great shops and restaurants to try on lunch break.

    Cons

    These people are soo weird. They avoid eye contact so they dont have to greet you. No one talks , some friendly folks but they are very rare. Strange HR dept, no cohesiveness, no one likes them. Very vanilla company if you get my drift. I do not recommend...

    Advice to Management

    You need more diversity and inclusion. Not a friendly environment, management very poor.
