    I have been working at Electric Guard Dog full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I wake up every morning excited to go to work... sounds cliché, but so true! Co-workers and team atmosphere are great! Management wants you to succeed in your position.

    Cons

    As a growing company, the roles are continuously changing, and next steps/advancements in your career path are sometimes unclear. I would like upper management to take some time to focus on where the company is going ,and help setting up your where you see your self advancing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the "family" mentality as the company continues to grow.

    Pros

    Wonderful training & on boarding program. Beautiful corporate office setting. Warm, friendly & welcoming environment. Strong support from Department Manager - Crystal, as well as the entire team! Crystal is very approachable & highly respected by her team. I truly felt part of the team after only a week.

    Cons

    I wish I found this opportunity sooner!

    Advice to Management

    Keep the environment fast, fun & friendly. Continue to manage poor performers and move them out. This will keep morale positive among top performers. Recognize strong performance & set challenging, yet obtainable developmental goals. Continue to lead by example. Build strong rapport with other departments while working cross functionally. Give real time & constructive feedback.

    It was a long road to find a place like EGD. Not only is the service and product we provide something I truly believe in, it's also like working with a big family. The work is challenging, but I never feel taken for granted and I'm grateful to be a part of this growing establishment. Creativity and ideas are welcome. It's a rarity to land a job you look forward to everyday!
