    Pros

    largest company in New Orleans. No competition so stress/deadlines are all self induced. With planning you can manage the workload quite well.

    Cons

    Advancement is very limited and not logical. After a few years, it becomes harder to move. Company is full of administrators (its a monopoly) so advancement is directly related to being a good administrator, not a good manager or a visionary or a risk taker.

    1. Hierarchical and political

    Pros

    The benefits are great. We receive higher than industry average pay. The benefits are good too. We get to go to training events annually, insurances are good, and we get an annual bonus and quarterly bonuses.

    Cons

    Management can give raises based on favoritism. I've seen a Technician make Supervisor, stay in that position less than a year, and then make Operations Superintendent. The guy had no leadership, management, or supervisory skills at all.

    Advice to Management

    Give raises and promotions based on merit, work ethic, and how self motivated and individual is and not by how much rear end one kisses. Moral will improve.

    Pros

    Great work schedule. Get the option to choose your work schedule.

    Only way to move up or get promoted in the company is to tell on others(Gossip).

    Advice to Management

    Utilize the talents that you already have in the company instead of always paying thousands of dollars more to hire outside of the company.
