    Hire branch managers that actually have 5 years of experience managing employees with respect to HR guidelines,also experience in managing field crews and office staff.

    No money for training, years without raises in spite of mandatory annual reviews. Management wants to run a services company but won't budget for developing services. Management has no awareness of or desire to embrace the modern world.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Fujitec America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some really good people there who balanced out some of the nonsense of management. If you were driven enough you could gain a lot of experience in different areas of the business since they always had major holes to fill.

    Cons

    When I was still there some of the managers got away with more than you could ever imagine. Abuse of resources, abuse of people and customers, and quite honestly some of them were the least intelligent and business savvy people I have encountered at any job. I hear they got rid of a lot of those bad apples now, but the reputation took a huge beating in the market and I have not heard anything to make me think it has since recovered. Salary wasn't great and the benefits were atrocious.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize who is doing what at the branches and reevaluate who is leading those teams. Find a way to deliver product to the states quicker, the lead times took you right out of the running for a lot of jobs, especially with hydros.
