    Great culture, helpful staff. Bigger business with a small business heart.

    I worked at Cupertino Electric full-time

    Pros

    Company size and investment in technology is progressive compared to others in this space. Company communication seems to be decent, as large as the company is. They use a system called LiveWire where employees can get company updates, find fellows within the org, and find forms for HR, healthcare, etc. They seem to get a lot of work, though I don't know why.

    Cons

    Management is fragmented and constantly trying to keep their teams put together. The best employees leave and go FTE with a client or go to other shops. There seems to be a higher revolving door similar to what was seen at Sasco. I wanted to believe I was working for an elite contractor, but I kept finding myself disappointed in the management's decisions and course of actions. When I called attention to it, I was fired. I am not bitter, Cupe lost one of the best and brightest and they will never get me back.

    Advice to Management

    Rip and replace the entire management, one person at a time. Do THOROUGH quarterly reviews of all key members of the organization. Have an ETHICS COMMITTEE OR POLICY. It's the wild west, half of the management in the LA office didn't even show up to the office but maybe 2 times a week for 1-2 hours max. No joke. San Jose office is seeing a lot of turnover, and actually they are firing some key people in SJ. But more needs to be done. They have all but closed down their Fire/Life Safety group. It's really hard seeing them continue to grow at this pace with the reputation they are building.

    Pros

    Good experience to have on your resume.

    The company makes claims about its culture that simply are not true. This is not a good place to develop your career. Most of the good people leave quickly for other opportunities.
