    I worked at AWC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great enviornment and great growth possibilities and chance for promotions within. Management was amazing. Felt like a work family. Also if weather was bad or flooding they would have calls auto t'frd to your cell phone and let you work from home. Which was great and never worked for a company that allowed that. I hated leaving AWC but a job opportunity came that I couldn't pass up. My supervisor, she tried to match my new jobs offer but it was almost 45% raise and a company truck. I really enjoyed being employed there and still talk to/hang out with old co-workers. Another big pro was quarterly bonuses and even the warehouse folks would get them.

    Cons

    Traffic was the only thing that made my day bad there and that is unavoidable really.

    Advice to Management

    Inflation raises would be nice although pay was very competetive. Other than that, none. Mr Wenyon, the CEO, made me feel important and was very approachable and super smart and really cares about everyone down to the newest hire. I learned so much from my managers on Instrument/Elect sides.

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

    Pros

    Competitive Pay

    Management that truly listens to employees and responds to issues

    Supportive environment where employees help each other to succeed

    Safety is a top priority of upper management

    Cons

    Various branches/divisions sometimes don't communicate with each other as well as they could, but the company is working on this.

    Advice to Management

    Try and have some more summit-type meetings for all the various branches/divisions to share ideas

    Pros

    Some friendly faces and benefits were competitive.

    Horrible team atmosphere and no communication within company. Upper management doesn't seem to care about anyone beneath them. Older workforce that have one foot out the door.

    Pros

    Division I worked in a had a great team atmosphere; focused on individual success as part of group success; benefits and compensation were great

    Cons

    From what I heard, other divisions had a much more "every man for himself" mentality; it is the oil and gas industry, so large lay offs happen when the market is down; manager at my division is racists, he would say something racially insensitive and no one questioned or challenged him.

    Change needed in middle management and need to hire experienced industry sales executive for better productivity. Expand out-of-the-box thinking strategy, tactics and how to go to market. More modern market penetration plans.
