    I have been working at City Electric Supply full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working at City Electric Supply for about a year and have enjoyed every single day. Since day one my expectations were made very clear as well as the fact that with hard work and dedication my future will be bright.
    Leadership from CEO on down are very friendly and approachable. It is very comforting to have a work environment that encourages communication with all its employees.
    CES tries to be involved in various community projects in the Dallas area and does not seek any form of publicity, very few CEO's I have seen take the time to help and not be involved just for the cameras.
    For future candidates, I would offer the following, this company was started by a family man and it really feels like home when I come to work. This alone has motivated me to always give my best effort.

    Cons

    none, I honestly can not provide a bad thing to say

    Advice to Management

    Keep the family atmosphere, its really a change from any other company that I have worked for. Its much different when someone is just a number in a system to when someone is acknowledged by name.
