    I have been working at Grid One Solutions, Inc. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get paid, you get tons and tons of family-free time if you're looking to escape from it

    Cons

    Time away, unrealistic expectations, underhanded leadership, last minute schedule changes, no family considerations

    Advice to Management

    Just because you hate your family doesn't mean your employees do! If you want a happy, long-term workforce that wants to work hard for you, you are going to HAVE to start being considerate of your employees lives. You need to acknowledge that they do have lives outside of living at their job site 5/7 days out of the week. Last minute schedule changes that take away from their weekend (aka their ONLY time with their families) are not acceptable under any circumstances. Also.... just an FYI... when you hire someone and tell them Saturdays are optional and then 2 months later make Saturdays mandatory, that really hits the morale. Use your heads. Monday through Friday is the same amount of days as Tuesday through Saturday. You will not get more work done that way. And in fact, you will begin losing your employees if you keep up this circus

    I have been working at Grid One Solutions, Inc. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I started off believing in what I was told at my interview which was I would be trained and paid a certain salary based on my previous experience. Neither has occurred.

    Cons

    Management misleads the employees by promising things that aren't delivered, Safety is always talked about but not a top priority for the company based on lack of training and lack of proper tools to do the job. Your always given excuses when you ask about anything pertaining to the job. You also are not given necessary medical help when injured in the job instead management tries to put off reporting your injuries to corporate. I could never recommend anyone to this job without proper changes being made.

    Advice to Management

    I would strongly recommend that the company as a whole review their Project Managers and Managers for the 196 location. I also would suggest not under compensating employees who have past experience in their field.

    I have been working at Grid One Solutions, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    This organization cares about employee safety above all. They expect that employees do a quality job and put in a full day. I've participated on many projects and have found a fair rate of pay for each assignment. Incentives are available and allow for employees to make good money.

    The core values of the organization are covered in training and it is clearly the source of how most managers make their decisions.

    There is a lot of opportunity (especially if you are mobile) created through hard work. More opportunity is created more quickly with Grid One then I have seen elsewhere.

    Other Pros: Good Manager Communications, Focus on Safety, Training and Upward Mobility. Can also be a good experience to catch on with Utility operation.

    Cons

    Without mobility the work is project based and will most likely end.

    You will work in all weather.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to engage the workforce beyond the Employee Safety Committee.

    Pros

    Benefits, bosses were great, made lifetime friends, worked independent.

    Cons

    Contract work so it eventually ends. Dont live beyond your means with this company. The work will end.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work
