    I have been working at Communications International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great experience working in the field and working with various test equipment. Everyone is pretty nice and you get a lot of exposure with RF equipment

    Cons

    Starting salary is pretty low and not much room for advancement unless you're willing to travel quite a bit. Small company with a ton of corporate overhead.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees a reasonable salary and understand what it's like to be on call and compensate accordingly.

    Pros

    I can't think of any off the top of my head... Sorry The training you get is minimal and really they could use the training.

    Cons

    Most of the negative reviews are spot on. This company is filled with a bunch of drinkers, drug addicted morons, gamblers, cheaters, controlling, un-trusting strange management. They hire young kids that act like idiots, wreck the company and rental vehicles but yet praise them and ignore the actual grown up professionals that work hard to get the jobs compete. The owner likes the young ones. There is something strange going on in this company for sure.

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Communications International full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Can't say anything good about this place. Still has a problem with the cliques here. If you're NOT IN with the controlling clique you are an outsider. You have to be a drinker, gambler, hunter, love to cheat on you spouse, and a BUTT KISSER to be included in the group.

    Cons

    Can't be a professional. They have their clique buddies put BUGS into the system, misalign it just enough to keep the systems working intermittently, then send you out on the "CALL OUT". They put you in a position to fail.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you get rid of the clique leaders and hold lower and middle managers responsible for doing so. Upper management and the HR group must listen to the front line personnel, They know what is really going on.

    I have been working at Communications International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Solid company, good people to work with. Decent benefits. Fast paced & growing!

    Cons

    Pay could be better. No communications or direction from upper management. Very cliquish.

    Advice to Management

    Visit and talk with employees. Let us know how the company is doing, where it's going, and what we can do to help.

    It would be nice to be able to communicate ideas and concerns without risk of backlash.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere with great people. I felt respected from all levels of management. Small company feel with very capable employees. They truly value the balance between work and home

    Cons

    I was treated well and received financial rewards, but I don't think that was consistent at all levels or positions. However, they still have little turnover because it's such a good environment. The negatives of a small company also come with the positives, but it's nothing out of the ordinary.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on!

    Pros

    Job not tough,love the environement of the public safety people. Worked independently of and had a lot of freedom in job role, no one breathing down your neck. Compnay car was nice, decent benifits.

    Cons

    Very clickish and had to suck up tp the owner or you were out.. Very little trust about anyone, lot's of tattle tales could never trust anyone. I couldn't believe how bad it was until I convided in someone and it was told to his boss. I had to get out just couldnt trust anyone at ll.

    Advice to Management

    Need a professional environment, to buddy buddy, not a lot of skill at the senior management level. Either they grew up there or hired old hasbins..

    Pros

    Pay and benefits were pretty good for the area. On the surface, the company culture is pretty good.

    Cons

    There is a definite lack of good communication between managers and employees, and between departments. Training for new employees is terrible. Initiative is not rewarded, only doing exactly what you are told (if you are lucky enough to be told and in a direct, clear manner).

    Advice to Management

    New hires should be given an overview of what each department is about, how they work together, etc. Recognize that just because someone is a good employee does not make them good at training others.

    Pros

    Great company to get your start in. *Used* to be very family oriented, it's a little different now, but still treats employees very well.
    Some of the managers are great people that really care about their employees, others act like they're playing in a sandbox. Upper management is pretty good, a little removed from day to day reality. HR is excellent, very accessible.

    Cons

    Depending on your position, there is little to no room for career growth.

    Advice to Management

    None. I enjoyed my time there.

    Pros

    Learn about new technologies quickly if you are willing to put in the time. A lot of good people to work with. Tons of hands on learning.

    Cons

    Upper management waits until the last minute when things are at the worst before making a decision.
    A lot of "double talk."
