    Pros

    I have been working for AVISPL for over 5 years. I have had several opportunities to go somewhere else but I chose to stay. This company offers great potentials.

    Cons

    I drive over 100 miles per day (round trip) to work. I think it speaks for itself! I would have not drove over 30,000 miles per year if I thought this company was not a GREAT company to work for!

    Continue work with employees on Work/Life balance

    Throughout the year the company always had several types of team building activities and they're tons of fun! They also had a really nice Christmas party and a really cool Halloween department decorative competition. Overall it's just a great place to work.

    I would say benefits but before I moved they really vamped up their benefit package so hats off to them.

    Pros

    Union Branch of AVI-SPL, better pay, full health dental and eyes, pension 10-12k/yr. over-time and double-time hrs, diverse group of installers. Consistent raises every six months. Mileage pay $20 greater than 55 total miles. Phone bill reimbursement $40.

    Cons

    No paid vacation but should change with the new S&C contract ending in November of 2017. We missed the new state law by two months in 2014 during negotiations. Long long hours and usually undermanned towards the end of a project.

    Advice to Management

    You can't polish a turd, find people who are naturally motivated to work hard and then inspire them to grow.

    Very demanding schedule along with not so great benefits.

    Advice to Management

    To achieve the true company vision and mission, more investment is needed in the present with a analytical approach, not just number crunching. Short run investment yields long run gains.
