I worked at Equator Business Solutions full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Equator knows lenders and banks, but their commitment to their employees is seriously lacking. If you are an executive, you are good, otherwise you never know.

Cons

Equator seems to staff up for projects and instead of moving people from a project that is complete, they hire new people for new projects and let their old project people go Not the most conducive environment to a feeling of safety and well-being.

    Pros

    Used to have cool people and friendly managers
    Good pay, depending on your position

    Modern office in a good location

    Cons

    They randomly fire 10-15% of their workforce on a yearly basis, and they usually lose friendly, talented employees
    Upper management seems to have very little idea of what their employees want

    Advice to Management

    Pay a little more attention to the well-being of your employees

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Equator Business Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free Coffee
    Free Snacks/Fruit
    Free Soda
    Break Room
    Free Lunch

    Cons

    No Work/Life Balance
    Projects over promised by CEO who doesn't directly work projects or question management when it is possible to deliver
    Regular mandatory meetings make it impossible to get anything done
    Not enough cross training therefore leaving projects stifled when some associates are gone for personal reasons

    All items listed in the Pro section are directly related to Upper Management not wanting employees to leave the office for their lunch. As long as the items are offered, employees don't need to leave for lunch

    Advice to Management

    Advice first to Associates: Call Wash Tech. In this day, while it is tough to find a job, Equator is taking advantage of you. Know your rights, start a union. Wash Tech has National Unions and will help! And, it is ILLEGAL to retaliate against you for contacting Wash Tech. With that said, do it privately. Do not contact them on work computers/phones.
    Advice to Management: If you feel everything you do is in line with caring for your employees and nothing needs to change. Then you call Wash Tech. And get a clue as to how to treat people. Real people These are not slaves! These are people with family, friends and a personal life that you are taking away.
