    Not many. This is great industry. The contractors and the distributors are a pleasure to work with. the architects are a pain in the you know what.

    Micro managed. You will spend 80% of your time doing reports and drawing graphs for the upper management that are trying to justify their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Stay clear of this company unless you like spending your time doing reports.
