    I have been working at Bergaila full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been employed by Bergaila for nearly 4 years. I work in the corporate headquarter office. This is a family owned business and I love the tight-knit team, corporate culture that Bergaila promotes. I love that employees are not just a number and the work that each person contributes makes a major impact on the business. Since the beginning of my employment I have experienced so much growth professionally and have had an unlimited opportunity to take on new projects and really build my resume. I doubt that I will ever outgrow Bergaila. This is certainly a company where I intend to stay. I believe Bergaila fairly compensates it's employees and does what they can to offer competitive benefits. I am so happy to be part of this team.

    Cons

    In my opinion there are none.

    Advice to Management

    I hope to see more of the same.

    Pros

    Was told it was an experienced firm.

    Cons

    Was referred to this company a few months back by a former colleague. After initial contact, couldn't get past the front desk to speak with anyone about a position they had available.

    Advice to Management

    Tell your employees to respond to people trying to contact them. If they're not interested, be up front and truthful. It's unprofessional for recruiters to not respond to candidates who they initially contacted.

    Pros

    Everyone is pretty nice. Easy work

    Cons

    Management is all family. So if someone mistreats you, it won't matter.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to keep good hard workers and compensate them accordingly instead of paying lazy family members who do not treat their co-workers well.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Bergaila full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Bergaila is essentially a payroll company that does have a few benefits. They are somewhat easy to deal with.

    Cons

    Poor communication. Don't value employees. Employees are virtually just numbers to Bergaila. Health insurance is high.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify.

    Pros

    They are very honest with a good reputation in the Industries Nationwide. They offer good benefits. They are very good at answering and responding to Questions. Chris Bergaila is a very Professional Businesswoman. I will always be willing to work for Bergaila anywhere in the nation and overseas if the opportunity arises

    Cons

    There really is none. The only one would be that you are a contractor and not a direct employee. I had worked a total of 9 years and 4 1/2 months as a contractor & not a direct employee.

    Advice to Management

    Please have Chris at the Christmas Parties, she is a wonderful Lady.

    I worked at Bergaila full-time

    Pros

    Relaxed office atmosphere. Management provided lunch at least once a month. Yearly company parties were fun. Good PTO policy.

    Cons

    They seemed not to have a very organized management system. They are a family owned and run contracting agency. so there does seem to be some nepotism. Lacked direction, but were making strides to move forward in the right direction.

    Advice to Management

    Get more organized.
