    I worked at Beckwith Electric full-time

    Pros

    Open door policy with management

    Cons

    Management is the biggest group of inept leaders in industry. They make up lame excuses to fire dozens of people at a time when they need to downsize every 4 years or so and then brag to customers that they "Don't do layoffs"

    Total lack of discipline and proper company conduct from workers and line leaders on Operations floor.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company and let professionals take over

    Technical expertise.

    CEO is difficult to work with and throws temper tantrums often. It's a dictatorship and managers have no real power to do anything.

    Expectation to give up your life. Phone calls late nights, weekends.

    It's time to retire.

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

    Pros

    Wonderful people, great benefits, really enjoyable work environment.

    Cons

    Because it's a small family owned company, your job could be a casualty of month to month cash flow when orders aren't coming in.

    Advice to Management

    Company CEO tends to circumvent processes that are in place for a reason, trying to take shortcuts to make customers happy. ISO procedures are constantly violated, & he is usually the root cause.

    Lots of seniority in management but it manifests itself into not wanting to make changes

    Advice to Management

    They need to recognize the disruption they cause by expecting everyone to drop everything right away to help them.
