    I worked at Associated Builders and Contractors full-time

    Pros

    Members, mission, concept, accomplishments, history. Great image from members to members.

    Cons

    Having to work with staff. Poor chapter management, no room to move, no training, no culture, no support. Office politics and the good ol’ Boy network is alive and well in Orlando. Stay away unless you can be miserable for a few years and do not wish to excel your career. This is a great place to throw away your talents and leave feeling worse than you thought possible.

    Advice to Management

    Get real. Retire. It is time to move on!

    I worked at Associated Builders and Contractors full-time

    Pros

    Networking, members, pay, lunch break, instructors are nice (ran out of pros)

    Cons

    Old staff that needs to retire. I worked for abc CFC and i I thought it was going to be the best job ever. I don’t really have a lot of pros to say but as for cons I can go on and on. Between the older staff who’s been doing their job for years and still can’t seem to get a gripe of life to them expecting you to understand a full years worth of events and education courses in a few weeks. I had a 30 day evaluation and of course no one is perfect especially the newbie and i was giving 6 days to learn everything... EVERYTHING. Despite my hard work and contributions I was given no window when I got fired. Last time I check employers give employees 90 days to fully comprehend the job they got hired for

    Advice to Management

    I don’t normally do things like this but I’ve never felt so belittled like I was nothing to these people, like I don’t have a family to support. If you’re going to fire someone... give them 2 weeks notice. You never know what people is going through to just fire them they could loose everything.. what do these people care?

    I have been working at Associated Builders and Contractors full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Zero leadership and management so you can basically do whatever you want which includes sleeping in your office and playing on the internet 24/7 but you have to be in the office 40 hours a week - a must, even on salary!

    Cons

    Because there is zero leadership ,which is partly due to the president being more involved with his personal businesses and activities (golf, working out, walking his dog), there is a TON of micro management from staff members and a ton of undermining that causes mass tension. There is also a lack of transparency when it comes to hourly and salary employees...which should be looked into...There is ZERO work life balance. You are expected to be in the office 8-5, Monday - Friday. If you don't take a lunch, YOU can't leave early....Don't expect on any holidays a mutter of happy birthday, merry christmas, etc., because you won't get it! Zero praise on work efforts as well - it's literally like a factory!

    Advice to Management

    Work at least a 25 hour week in the office and be an active leader in the organization. Be involved in what your team is or isn't doing and be direct with your communication instead of having staff members deliberate on your behalf. The demise of your staff is due to your ineffectiveness as a leader and will continue on with new employees that are intelligent enough to know the place is completely backwards.
