    Pros

    As long as you can kiss butt you have a good route and everything you do wrong is over looked. Great pay as long as you put in the time

    Cons

    Doesn't matter how good you do you are doing your job.. but if you mess up one time you could be terminated unless you are in the clique

    Advice to Management

    Cut the fat in management.. if we are losing money fire the ones that are sucking the money put and not benefiting the company.. the field workers make your money for you not supervisor or admin

    Pros

    none since this company purchaced multiband 1 1/2 yrs ago.kept taking from techs, kept setting higher standards,filed bankrupt,fired upper managment,upped stansards more. and i never meet 1 person from thie company i worked for..

    Cons

    you employed people that worked for you by way of company purchase,that worked in this field for 10 yrs plus.then decide to downsize and let veteran techs go without notice just before the holidays.left supervisors in charge of terminating techs while managers couldnt show up...termed for no reason other than your name came up and we dont know anything

    Advice to Management

    get out of this line of work,your a failure to your goodman name and company.Hope you end up with the same thing the techs did, Merry Christmas (_!_)s

    Pros

    Great freedom, do what you do well, and no hassles. Great benefits, understanding management.

    Cons

    Talking about going hourly. HOURLY! We make money per job... NOT HOURLY> Mark my words, if this company goes hourly, it will go under.

    Advice to Management

    DO NOT go hourly, and bring back bonuses up to 25%. Cut fat in upper management... not at people that you need for company to succeed. Bring call center to America, and give 2days in row off.. whatever days may be. BU DO NOT go hourly.

    Pros

    Overall this is really a great company to work for. There is not much opportunity for growth with this company in my role, but there is opportunity to grow with the company you are being contracted to. Work life balance is great, benefits are good and my manager is awesome.

    Cons

    There is no opportunity for growth in my role. There is also no pay raises with my role. Other than that I can’t think of any cons I have experienced.

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

    Pros

    I had one of the best supportive manager in my career. Because of the manager I wanted to stay indefinite and even finish my career with the company.

    Cons

    Despite a good manager, the company is not stable. It filed for Chapter 11 and has been laying off employees since I started working for the company. The last quarter had less profit than expected. I performed well in my entire 1-1/4 year stay but still got laid-off. HR responses is very slow. My 401K did not become active for a while since HR benefits department did not handle it well.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to be more aggressive in its marketing to get more business especially in Public Safety. Also they need to get more marketing people and keep them to grow the business and the company.

    Pros

    The pay is decent, the tech supervisors are very understandable and probably the best I got to work with. If you have now experience working with Directv or any technology then this is a great place, paid training and all, don't expect to last long unless you get lucky

    Cons

    Tons of lay offs, Monday November 6th. There was 6 tech's that got laid off for no reason, on the 7th I was laid off while on light duty from a injury I suffered whole working for G.N. Corporate is clueless and lead the business in multiple directions. GN just got out of bankruptcy and probably will enter it again very soon

    Advice to Management

    Management was great at the office.
