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

    I worked at Goodman Networks full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Close knit teams on the ground with solid supervisors. Middle management did the best they could with the directives they were given.

    Cons

    Upper/Executive Management became out of touch once the Goodman's relinquished control. Arbitrary cost controls were implemented with no understanding of how it would affect day to day operations as well as multiple layoffs. If you were not an EVP, 2015 and 2016 were spent wondering if you were going to have a job tomorrow.

    Advice to Management

    John/Jody, it's too little, too late at this point to make it what is was when I started all those years ago, but there are still good people, both in Frisco and around the country, that care and bust their butts for you. Don't let them down.

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

    Pros

    The potential pay and they do have benefits. Discounted TV Service.

    Cons

    VERY long days!! Potential Pay is messed up with all the service calls and disorganization... Favoritism does exist. They are trying to catch up to make things right that other technicians have messed up. Training is so fragmented and not organized at all.

    Advice to Management

    Crack down on the game playing and lack luster training..
