    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 (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some friendly faces and benefits were competitive.

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Value employees and keep communication open. Remember confidentiality when talking with employees.

    I worked at AWC full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    We apologize for the delayed response but have only recently become aware of your post.

    AWC in no way condones behavior as described in your comments. As a former employee, we encourage you to... More

    Pros

    Great arsenal of available product.

    Cons

    Poor disorganized management leading to poor communications

    Advice to Management

    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.

    Pros

    Somewhat competitive pay, family truly does come first, everyone is really nice, put up with no employee drama, training available

    Cons

    6 months after being told company was healthy, layoffs happened, can be slow at times, none other than that, treated me well

    Pros

    A great place to work and develop yourself and the company.

    Cons

    You would mostly work with gas and oil companies so if you could get past the feeling that you're helping to kill the planet you'll do fine.

    Advice to Management

    Branch out to cater to renewable resources.

    Pros

    Good pay with 8-5 hours, Monday through Friday. Pretty good bonus structure also

    Cons

    Boys club, it's not what you know but more of who you know. Upper management doesn't want or like to get involved with the problems and Lower management works off favoritism and kiss ups instead of how much work you do or extra duties that you do.

    Advice to Management

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, do not promote from with in to management. Remember that a lot of your employees will work harder off of compliments and pat on the backs.
