    Pros

    Safety is a major consideration while working. All proper procedures are followed to allow for a safe work environment. Benefits start from the first day of employment.

    Cons

    There is a disconnect between management and the workers. Scheduling has been inconsistent and your first month is frustrating because you get bounced around between positions. Many things are fixed to get by instead of fixed properly.

    Advice to Management

    Create an incentive program to motivate all employees to work together.

    Pros

    Good benefits, but that is also pretty standard across the industry

    Cons

    Pay is lower than industry competition. Management treats hourly employees like they are brainless and all positions management are a big political game. Managers regularly lie to employees and pressure supervisors to do the same thing. You are expected to work a lot of hours and are chastised for taking vacation/sick days. Management preaches ethics up until the point that it is inconvenient for them. As long as your boss likes you there will be room to grow in the company. Overall, the CEO had good ideas, but middle management had poor execution.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and fair with employees

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good and on-site gym staffed with trainers

    Cons

    Everything from processes and procedures to technology are behind the times. I feel like this place is stuck in the late 90's. There is no opportunity for advancement, no management support, lack of development opportunities, communication within department and outside of the department is non-existent. ZERO flexibility regardless of what they say.

    Pros

    Decent pay. Good benefits

    Cons

    Abysmal management. One manager was simply incompetent while others around enabled this to continue far too long. Constant drain on your psyche with high stress levels and no replenishment. Old school approach to technology despite the rows of magazines stating MMM is a top 500 leader in tech (what a joke).

    Advice to Management

    Give back to your employees. Allow for telecommute days or something similar. Stressed out people working full weeks AND on-call is a recipe for disaster (as evident by the high turn over)

    Pros

    The management staff and training staff are wonderful. They really get you psyched ringer out there and work for them.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the department I was in was fragmented and decentralized. There is absolutely no order and entirely not enough experience. There are sever ways to skin a cat but you get a mess if you employ all of them at once. Very poor planning and way too much concern about how much u will owe for what little is issued to you and access to necessary parts that repairs take in
    My opinion way longer than they should.

    Advice to Management

    Assign a job, assign a temp
    Lead man. Issue a scope of work and have supervisors if not put repairmen on track then design a general outline with procedures for workers to have a basic idea of what to do (since many don't have a clue)
