    Pros

    Just a healthy work environment. Office employees just seem to have good moral and love their job. Hours are awesome!

    I worked at Bergelectric full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    you will rarely go without work. I only had a few days over the course of 3 years that caused us to not be able to work for a day.

    Cons

    they don't really pay a decent amount. lots of PW work but low hourly wages for regular paying jobs.

    Advice to Management

    provide a higher rate of pay and more opportunites for advancement.

      I have been working at Bergelectric full-time

      Pros

      Great company. Good benefits. They are long term.

      Cons

      Depends on the office region as to what perks you receive. Not all offices are treated equally. Very structured. Sometimes the structure and procedures interfere with production.

      Advice to Management

      Focus more on employees that are doing well not just the bad.
