    I have been working at Fike full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Help paying for school, opportunity for advancement, and great personnel to work with.

    Cons

    A little low on the pay scale for technicians, but not by much, other than that no cons I've seen.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, it's a great place to work!

    I have been working at Fike full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Friendly, relaxed environment. Strong Wellness Program. Hard working, knowledgeable coworkers (mostly).

    Cons

    Salary is usually on the low end of the scale and room for job growth is limited within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Need more opportunity for raises that are higher than the cost of living growth rate. Job growth should be more accessible within each department. It seems like the only way to get ahead is to move to a different department. Keep up the good work with the open communication and employee rewards programs, these both help to keep the morale up.

    I worked at Fike full-time

    Pros

    Family owned business, kind people and good working atmosphere

    Cons

    But is no longer. The short term, make a quick buck philosophy has drowned out any longer term growth plan

    Advice to Management

    Put short term profit aside for a year or two and focus on long term plan of building a strong team of qualified and emotionally intelligent people...........Like you did in the past.

    I have been working at Fike full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    This used to be an excellent company to work for.

    Cons

    Too many new managers that do not listen to the employees who do the job. Managers vs Managers. The new managers want to put their signature on everything and it does not work. It's starting to show!

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the dead beats who cannot make it to work on time and who cannot work 40 hours a week. No one has to be accountable. Sit with the different departments and you will learn why the company is going downhill.

    I have been working at Fike

    Pros

    Flexible Lenient Interesting Benefits Loyal employees (not always a pro for the employee)

    Cons

    Behind on technology Under-paid If you become too valuable in your position, your chance of moving up the chain decreases and your pay doesn't increase.

    Advice to Management

    Sales isn't the only team that makes the company money. Without the other employees, you won't have those returning customers. Reward the people that keep the customers, not just the ones that make the initial sale.
