    I worked at Bergelectric full-time

    Pros

    Good company, big on safety. Advancement opportunity, offers training.

    Cons

    Not a lot of support in my position from management. Everyone points the blame and doesn’t own up to mistakes. No one can take constructive criticism well. Wrong people in management. Salary pay vs responsibility is horrible. Uses scare tactics to try to produce more work. Ignores in-house division and subs out work that can be done in house to try and save a buck. Hires and layoffs too often, horrible and projecting...

    I have been working at Bergelectric full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The people working for Berg are great. Everyone is helpful and works hard. The overall culture in the office is excellent and makes you feel good about coming to work everyday. Berg has a ton of work and is a very stable company. They are also not afraid to make changes and adapt. More focus as of late has been on field benefits, retention, and recruitment. This is important both because of the labor shortage and because...

    Cons

    A bit low to catch up with technology and rushes to implement new systems that aren't completely vetted.

    Advice to Management

    More thought and input from employees at all levels should be put into implemented systems. Continue to focus on development of our employees at all levels from apprentice to foreman.

    I worked at Bergelectric full-time

    Pros

    Good people in the office and field

    Cons

    Board and incoming CEO out of touch with reality and business. Arrogance and ignorance prosper.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those under you. Sometimes you have to make investments in people and markets. Stop expecting the company to pay for the fuel in your yachts. I was hired to build a division but the board is greedy and short sighted. My immediate boss was great and I respected him greatly but the corporate heads are pushing local branches to bid work that they don't have the manpower for. They hold them to quotas and it has...

    None. Best core group I have ever worked with
