    Pros

    Pay can be good depending on who hires you.

    You will be able to learn a lot as there are a lot of different things going on withing the company if you are willing to learn that is.

    Cons

    A good amount of people are getting paid under or at the national minimum for their jobs.

    Higher ups in company do not seem to really listen to engineers as many basic needs for a network are severely lacking when it comes to managing them, monitoring them and getting support.

    No real vision as to where the company wants to go or how to manage a way to get to where they are trying to go, mainly because of issue with higher ups hampering a lot of projects.

    Too many Chiefs thorught all of CHS way to little actual technicians, engineers etc.

    Pros

    Great company if you're just looking for the option to work a straight 8, go home, and not grow.

    Cons

    Growth options are extremely limited. Very little diversity in the company, and poor versatility in the leadership staff.

    Advice to Management

    Review the qualifications of ALL employees and not just a select few who you know on a personal level.
