I worked at Commissioning Agents full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

My co-workers were always ready and willing to assist me in understanding the ins and outs of the industry. My supervisor was eager to assist me in preparing for my next assignment and to move up in the organization.

Cons

Income is hourly, based on client bookings and assignments are based on client acceptance of me on their project. I was 'on the bench' for short periods of time. Work locations vary throughout the region and are not permanent, on the road most of the time.

    I worked at Commissioning Agents full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They pay you while you are "on the bench" waiting to be sent out for work.
    Quick, Weekly reimbursements on all travel expenses
    Provides a good quality company laptop for travel
    Weekly business status reports from President keeps employees informed
    Company is employee owned
    Office staff is polite and professional.
    Flexible to employee vacations, off-time, and travel arrangements except change fees.

    Cons

    Little say if any, in assignments.
    Assignments are often not good use of your talents and skill sets.
    Little communication from management on your personal situation, a ton of communication on company business
    You need to wait 2 years to get full vesting for your profit sharing. There is no in-between levels.
    Very particular rules on travel reimbursements (ex: must provide boarding passes in addition to receipts)
    Health care plan options could be improved
    Does not pay airfare change fees if employee has good personal reasons

    Advice to Management

    Offer quality health care plans, since this is an employee owned company, pay for it in full
    Offer other better benefits
    Do not require boarding passes for airfare reimbursement. Hardly anyone else does
    Re-decorate or consider a new home corporate office. The existing one does not present a good image.
    Offer to pay change fees if an employee breaks their leg or their kid is in the hospital the night before the flight.
    Some client site managers need to be removed or re-evaluated for their performance and professionalism, especially to the site contractors.

    Health insurance is a high-deductible w/ HSA. Families pay modest $20/ month for coverage - most employers would charge hundreds per month for family coverage. Each of last two years, company ... More
