Pros

Smart people, lots of resources, good reputation, strong local (branch) management

Cons

Senior management just didn't get it, made life miserable for my supervisors. Hard to sell and deliver with broken processes and weak senior leadership.

Advice to Management

Basic processes are broken; employee onboarding, quoting tools, account management tools and most surprisingly the ability to order, track and deliver material. SBT has core process issues that are overcome only by heroic, daily efforts at the branch level.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good benefits and a company vehicle are very nice. Some very good people work here.

    Cons

    Really wish I could work from home. In my opinion, this isn't a very desirable location to live in so most people commute from 1 hr + away. I hate commutes so this is kind of a big deal for me.
    Salary seems low for the area. I couldn't afford any decent housing in the DC area with my salary.

    Advice to Management

    Option to work from home a few days a week would be nice.
    I am an engineer that does PM work. I knowthe PMs get bonuses on their jobs that perform well, but I won't see any bonuses because I'm not a PM, even though I am doing the same work. Seems unfair.

    Pros

    The industry is a little peculiar - heavily regulated utilities that move pretty slow - but reducing global electric/gas/water consumption is a great cause and it's global in scope. The past year has been a good transition to a more focused development roadmap, allowing us to hit our objectives.

    Cons

    Team is overloaded with work and has been on overdrive for too long.

    Advice to Management

    Do a more realistic resource analysis
