    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.

    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.
