    I worked at ERF Wireless full-time

    Pros

    Never in the same place. Day goes by quickly. Decent pay. Decent co-workers. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Poor upper management. Quality of product being delivered was bad in most areas. Hours are long. Daily routes were long and inefficiently planned by dispatch. No room for advancement. Long list of installs needing to be done and no equipment on the shelf.

    I worked at ERF Wireless full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Aside from a few of people that worked there, I honestly can not think of anything else positive to say about ERF Wireless.

    Cons

    Literally everything. There is not one positive thing about this "company". Almost all of upper management is completely incompetent, and they have no idea how to treat their employees like actual human beings. I am honestly still surprised this place is still afloat.

    Pros

    Excellent customer base in the wireless / WISP environment. especially in the Oil & Gas sector.

    Cons

    Salary and commission structure is 25% below market for related experience. Company is in financial ruins and does not have adequate budget or resources to expand market share.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to an investor that growth and put capital and human resources into the company to be a competitive player.

    Pros

    +Excellent entry level job opportunities for students straight out of college.
    +Gain fundamental technical knowledge on RF technology and basic computing.
    +Learn the basics on networking and general workings of an ISP environment.
    +Friendly workers and regional managers.

    Cons

    -Minimal chances of advancement within the company.
    -Pay wage is far below industry standard for Help Desk even if employed over 2 years. (bottom 5%)
    -Elitist corporate attitude.
    -Poor performance within the stock market has caused a permanent wage freeze for all employees.
    -Lack of strategic funding has caused most of the networks to have frequent ongoing problems; causing a very high work load for Technical Support and Field Services.
    -Impossible to afford Health Benefits. Most if not all employees currently at ERF Wireless are left uninsured.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees industry standard salaries. Provide affordable health benefits. If the workers are happy and healthy, this reflects on happier customers and better sales.

    Pros

    Very few pros to working for this failing organization. Doesn't take much to excel above the majority of those employeed.

    Cons

    Where to begin? Poor use of available resources, company buys up smaller networks that are doing well on their own and bleeds them dry. Elitist attitude of majority of management, of which there are far too many to begin with. Only a handful of employees per mid-level manager. Management spends majority of time fighting over who makes the calls, requests information from their technical employees and then completely disregards all information given although the majority of management have no actual experience or expertise in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Cut back on the number of people who "make calls." Listen to your employees, cut back on the arrogance and elitist attitudes.
