    Pros

    Goodman is aligning itself to be a front runner in regards to what coming in technology.

    Cons

    More communication from the executive team to the lower ranks of employees,

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work on methods of communication to make sure all employees are clear on strategy and direction.

    Pros

    Company vehicle, 401K, PTO, had a lot of work to take us through the year

    Cons

    No home life being a field tech V, always on the road in and out of motels working days and nights you get burned out but that's just the way it is here. Too bad the Goodman brothers did not pay more attention as to how Gnet was being run by the former CEO and his cohorts. The former CEO was not a leader even though he tried to talk like one. No increase in wages for 3 years and when it finally did come about it was 2% or less and some got nothing. Nepotism is alive and well, this is the sad part, you had family members, not all because I don't know all of them, managing that had no clue what they were doing and others would have to go back and clean up their mess, if you would try to help them they didn't care. Job titles were given out that gave you more responsibility but that was about it. I could write a book on this but does anybody care? Not really..

    Advice to Management

    I would rarely give advice because some management doesn't like being told anything.

    Pros

    DirecTV Discount, Good pay for the demographics if you work hard. Most other technicians are friendly and helpful when you need assistance.

    Cons

    Management is so full of BS, 1 day off a week, 12-16 hr days, IF you need time off for appointments or Doctor you are docked attendance points or HAVE to use a PTO day. If you plan ahead for an appointment you are treated like you just shot their mother!

    0 family time, will never see any of your kids school or sports activities. Work, Sleep, Work, Sleep.

    Get told we are going to a 5 day work week! Oh not now we can't forecast correctly! Get stuck on another technicians screw up and then YOU OWN IT and are docked for being FORCED to do the job a $30 service call you have no clue what another tech did.

    Warehouse personnel may have a 3rd grade education. Cannot get the inventory you need to do the job as it is rationed. You spend 1/3 of your day driving an hour each way to chase someone who has parts, NOT MAKING MONEY, and they lack any professionalism.

    Pros

    There was always something to do, one never got bored working there. The experience I had really helped develop my problem solving skills.

    Cons

    The work that had to be done was usually clean up from other people. There was a definite lack of proper training and Management was too close knit. Either you were in the circle or you get thrown under the bus.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to stop hiring your friends, have some respect for your employees, especially the ones doing the grunt work to save your butts and lay off the sexual harassment and inappropriate locker room behavior in the workplace.
