    Pros

    Every customer and home is different and interesting. It's great having the freedom to travel verses being bound to a cubicle all day.
    Good benefits
    Good coworkers

    Cons

    Corporate downsizing. Always taking from the supervisors and technicians but expecting more in return. Pay goes down instead of up and you could be terminated and your position eliminated without any fair warning.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to spend time in the field and actually do the work that a technician does to fully understand whet the y go thru on a daily basis and not get too far from a techs perspective if they plan on supporting them as techs deserve to be supportred.

    I worked at Goodman Networks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Supervisors and Managers always willing to help out. Fellow technicians were good people and a great resource when in the field.

    Cons

    No base pay. No control over what jobs are assigned, most of which cannot be installed to code. CEO and all top executives suddenly left the company last November then Goodman filed chapter 11 in January. Possible to work 60 hr weeks and receive less than $280 gross pay. Dangerous and physically demanding.

    Advice to Management

    Communication across channels and locations needs severe improvement.
