    I worked at Bauer's Intelligent Transportation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people there are amazing and down to earth. The work is simple and there's much to do. You learn tons about the world of transportation.

    Cons

    Bauer's is a stepping stone, not a place to be for long. Most people that work there haven't been there longer than 3 years. They spend more time on recruiting/hiring than putting an effort into their staff.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO has no clue how to run a successful business. I compare him to someone who is an expert in transportation, but has no clue how to run a corporate business. I mean everyone is paid differently, rather than based on actual experience.

    Most people leave or get fired. There is no incentive to stay longer than a year, since the CEO will fight you on your raise. As I mentioned before, the turnover rate is high.

    Final Thoughts: Work here to gain experience, not to stay.

    Pros

    If you are a fixer work here.

    This place is a mess. Side deals. Crazy managers. Stuck in the past (like 1982).

    I have been working at Bauer's Intelligent Transportation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility to do what you want. Company provides lunch every pay day.

    Cons

    No teamwork; everyone has CYA philosophy. Poor benefits, no raises. If your contract includes a bonus, you will have to fight for it even if you've earned it. Important tasks don't get completed because nobody knows/cares who is supposed to do them. Extremely high turnover; when a manager leaves, so do all their processes and rules. Little confidence in owner among subordinates who view him as generally dishonest, overbearing, and foolish.

    Advice to Management

    Hire the right operations manager and trust him to do the job correctly. Assign tasks to positions and departments rather than to individuals. Promote from within; give raises based on merit. Formulate a specific plan to reduce turnover.

    I have been working at Bauer's Intelligent Transportation full-time

    Pros

    Good products, buses and shuttles are the best. Desire to perform well. The drivers are respectful. The company has a well known name in the san francisco area.

    Cons

    Leader who micro manages, thinks free lunches make up for poor pay. The CEO's friends are treated great, everyone else "who cares" attitude.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to grow, time to bring in real management. Don't be stubborn, be competitive. the drivers room should be more then an old shed

    Pros

    They tried to accomodate my skill set. they did pay well.

    Cons

    They never tried to listen to us as senior drivers. they made terrible manager choices and completely dismantled a proven system,causing major customer complaints.

    Advice to Management

    no, they're on their own and wouldn't listen anyway.

    Pros

    - fun parties
    - cool/fun sales manager
    - "interesting" clients
    - located just outside of downtown
    - if you need a limo, well....

    Cons

    - low pay relative to one is asked of the saleswoman/man
    - crappy office/trailer is where you work out of...yuck
    - disrespect of other employees is tolerated
    - no hr...I mean no hr
    - It's like selling someone a delicious prime steak with lobster tail and then delivering either exactly that or a cheeseburger and fries. If they happen to get the cheeseburger and fries, tell them they signed a contract that only guaranteed they would be fed not satisfied with the meal.

    Advice to Management

    Less micromanagement of mangers or allow them to do their jobs. More focus on a clear set of rules or guidelines for employees to follow. Disband the CYA mentality, allow for mistakes to occur.
