    Former Employee - Tech Level IV in Deerfield Beach, FL

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

    Pros

    A good place to learn the trade if you are self motivated individual

    Cons

    Very little consideration to their employees. Everything is about the business

    Advice to Management

    They are always right. Be more open to criticisms. Some ideas that come from the filed are good

    I worked at Betacom (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I really cannot list any.

    Cons

    The turnover rate is a product of it's zero leadership.They boast it being a family run business which could'nt be farther from the truth. Betacom's culture was the absolute worst I've ever worked for.

    Advice to Management

    The "beat you with a stick" mentality yields less production from your employees. Start treating your employees as human beings, opoposed to criminals. The greed of the owner and two VPs is sickening for a business that claims to be run by Christians.

    Current Employee - Tower Tech in Coral Springs, FL

    Pros

    Better benefits and pay than similar companies in the state. It has good equipment and vehicles. If you like the field, working with tools and are not afraid of heights then this may be a good place for you.

    Cons

    Only for the rugged. Degrees or anything you may learn from a book, although not useless, are not valued or appreciated. You have to pay your dues doing the dirty work no matter how knowledgeable or educated you may be.

    Advice to Management

    Must learn to utilize the talent to the best of potential instead of making workers pay dues doing something they are not good at while not giving the opportunity to do what the worker may do best.

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, good coworkers

    Cons

    Typical of this industry, definitely not exclusive to Betacom, the work life balance is precarious. Many cumbersome processes to get things done.

    Do reviews on time and read the article "7 reasons good employees leave"

    I have been working at Betacom full-time

    Pros

    Betacom is an established company that still has a small company feel. For the industry, it cares more about its people than most. They have a solid pay and compensation package.

    Cons

    The company suffers many of the same difficulties others in this field have. Short timelines, extreme expectations, and difficult schedules.

    Advice to Management

    Temper customer expectations. Empower the Middle Management. Mentor employees.

    I worked at Betacom full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent salary; some training available; basic benefits; 401k.

    Cons

    Little to no advancement; hostile work environment; no communication; management is very misleading.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like they are expendable because without them, you'd be doing it all yourself.

    Pros

    They pay on time and have good benefits. They have new dodge diesel trucks. They give per Demi when you travel.

    Cons

    Your always on the road and never home. They tell you one thing and then do the opposite. Communication is limited
