    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. If you don't have a strong work ethic and you work in the field, you won't last. Co workers are great too. Progression from the field to corporate can be difficult. Most likely you have to know someone to get in.

    Cons

    Everyone isn't fit to be a manager or supervisor

    Advice to Management

    Need to develop better relationships with employees that report to them. That causes problems down the road

    Pros

    You are recognized for work done well. You are paid well and have paid time off. There is flexibility in some departments with hours.

    Cons

    The hours can tend to be long, even though getting paid overtime, it seems like there is no end to the work - there should be more employees.

    It's mostly business, no fun. There are some social activities but no social life for adults without kids. Most of the activities outside of work hours are geared towards families.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize when your employee is drowning and offer a compromise when trying to get it all done, instead of offering approved overtime hours. Maybe a temp might be beneficial.

    Great company that still cares about their employees. The recently retired CEO know everyone by name and was very approachable. The leadership team that is in place now has carried this rich tradition on as well.

    Nothing at this time sorry

    I have been working at AGL Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get your own truck so you save on gas money.

    Cons

    I was the slow period is about 2 weeks. It was actually over 2 months. I would have made more standing on a corner collecting change. They strategically schedule you for 4 hours for an entire week so that you can collect unemployment. Beginning in June, you are to work mandatory 6 day weeks. You will leave your house around 7, to start at 8 and you wont get home until after 8pm. They will deny all of your vacation requests. New baby? Family parties? Kids first birthday party? Important event? Forget it. You will be denied through a very empathetic (sarcasm) TEXT MESSAGE. Good luck getting a raise. The manager in charge is from a call center and she knows nothing about HVAC. All they care about is numbers. They do not care about their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees more. Hire more people in the Summer, ever consider temp positions? I'm sure there are people looking to get experience under their belt. I have a family. I can't be away from 70 hours a week and expect my wife to work full time, take care of the house, do groceries, take care of the baby, etc ... all by herself.
