    Pros

    They are a world class organization with strong structure. Jobs are typically stable with independence that allow a consistent schedule. Large company with plenty of room for growth if you put in the work

    Cons

    Negative side is that you have to please everyone. Your position opens the door for lots of blame and finger pointing if someone else isn't happy.

    Advice to Management

    For upper management to make more trips to job sites to find out who is happy and who isn't so that conflict can be resolved before others are involved.

    I worked at EMCOR (Connecticut) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved my supervisors and the group I worked with. We worked hard and everyone respected each other. It was like a family. I have to say my supervisors always went to bat for me.

    Cons

    As hard as I worked, my first yearly raise was 35 cent and I was told that's the highest amount that is paid out. There were several hundred accounts and most of them were different and complicated and they didn't want to change how they set up the accounts to make it easier for us.

    Advice to Management

    Top management, meaning the CEO, needs to come down off his high horse and visit and evaluate what's going on in his call center.

    Pros

    Seemingly good benefits, but unable to have used them.

    Cons

    High stress, low seniority lay offs are all too often.

    Advice to Management

    Account Reps loosing the contract should be the first to go...not others working hard to maintain their accounts.

    I worked at EMCOR (Connecticut) (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great former director, he was interested in people succeeding. The atmosphere was colorful and vibrant. Company was an employee friendly environment.

    Cons

    New director is self indulgent and does not care about individual contributors at all. Company no longer values employee input, WE ARE JUST A MEANS TO AN END FOR THE COMPANY.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and stop talking so much. Your deals may not go thru in the end because of the way you treat your staff. Don't believe everything that upper management tells you! They LIE blatantly!!!.
