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


    I can’t speak highly enough about working for Cupertino Electric. The training/resources available, the always positive work environment, genuinely passionate employees, and the feeling of almost limitless potential for career growth, is everything and more that I was looking for when I applied with CEI. I honestly look forward to coming to work every single day.


    Time seems evaporate. Almost daily I find myself in disbelief on fast the time goes. This really isn't a con, but it really the only thing I could come up with.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire diverse individuals with varyring backgrounds and experiences. Continue to cultivate the amazing culture we have throughout the company. I have not worked for a company that provides the training, resouces, benefits, and opportunity for career growth. I truly feel very fortunate to be a part of the CEI family and hope you all keep up the amazing job you have been doing. Thank you!
