    I worked at Bergelectric full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Successful electrical contractor with lots of work in the Portland, OR area right now. If you are a journeyman electrician or an apprentice, you will find all the work you want with this company. And they are national so movement to different regional offices is also possible if that is something you are interested in.

    Cons

    I worked there as an apprentice, and can say that you can very easily get stuck doing the same task for months on end because of the size of the projects that they work on. Good for the company, but bad if you are trying to get a diverse experience as an apprentice so that you are prepared to be a well-rounded journeyman electrician when you turn out.

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Bergelectric full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Bergelectric is a big company. They have a lot of work. Berg was busy when the economy was down and continues to land projects.

    Cons

    Bergelectric cons would be. They do not have paid holidays. No vacation time for field employees. Also the pay seems to be less than other companies.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be. To take care of the field guys. Offer them more incentives to stay.
