    I have been working at Insulectro full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This company has strong leadership. It is run professionally by leadership that is committed to building on its success for the long term. The employees are committed to getting the job done and many have been with the company for a long time, which tells me they are well-cared for.

    Cons

    It's too early to say. I'm a fairly new employee. Things look positive.

    Advice to Management

    You know what your business is (hedgehog) and understand what you have to be best in the world at for the business to thrive. You provide the best service for both your customers and your principals. My advice is to stay confident in pursuit of our strategy - stand firm even in those times when our customers and principals are pressing us to waver.

    I worked at Insulectro full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of work. Can be a fun environment, seems to be a family oriented place, but it's really not.

    Cons

    Too many to list. But now that theirs been a shake-up of management, maybe it's better. They tend to not appreciate the good workers and play favorites or turn a blind eye to the bad/non-efficient workers.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the managers and pay people based on work ethic.

    I worked at Insulectro full-time

    Pros

    I worked here for about 3 years and if it wasn't because I had to relocate, I would've retired at this company. The owners were always so passionate about their employees and made us feel like family. I was surprised to see the amount of long term employees at this company, but after working there for 3 years, I understood why. The amount of training and experience that I received from working there has definitely helped me in my career. This was a fun company to work for that had great benefits! If you want to work for an amazing company, I would highly recommend them!

    Cons

    Sad that I left!

    Advice to Management

    Great job, keep up the great work!

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

    Pros

    the people are very nice and fun, the family owners really do care about their employees and are very accessible

    Cons

    hours can be long, very short learning curve, super high paced (hit the ground running), benefits are the bare minimum, only 5 paid holidays, no jury duty time off, at times can be very overworked and had to skip through several lunches and stayed late. very monotonous, absolutely no room for upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    You were the nicest owners/CEOs to work for, but these guys give a lot of effort and time into the company and they need more paid time off (nothing btwn New Year's and Memorial Day)
