    I worked at MasTec Network Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Good people working there, but no opportunities for advancement unless you are sleeping with the VP-GM, or keep quiet about what he's doing like cooking the books, taking monies from scrap metal from the warehouse, and has a baseball field set up in the warehouse for his outside little league team.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional VP-GM that can sexually harass, be unethical, and nothing done to him. HR backs him up with all the knowledge they know about him, and he's empowered to continue doing what he does.

    Advice to Management

    Take classes and learn how to manage. Currently they just follow the dysfunctional VP-GM to keep a job. No ethics;

    Pros

    There are plenty of opportunities for over time, with that you are expected to work overtime. This is discussed in the interview, but not to the extent of which it actually involves.

    Cons

    Management is utilitarian and needs some fine tuning. There are many opportunities in the company, but the environment does not nurture this type of movement.

    Advice to Management

    Have updated management courses and make it a requirement to take them regularly. When you have good employees, don't keep them in entry level positions at risk of losing them there because you will lose them all together in the end.

    Pros

    Some of the people who work here are legitimately good people.

    Cons

    Everything. This place is mismanaged from top to bottom. Benefits, bonuses, perks, recognition, and other fundamental business practices are somewhere between terrible to non-existent. People here work 7 days a week, and are told they still arent doing enough to meet deadlines. People are told to rush work, only to be thrashed on quality audits. Good men are fired for petty reasons, while management simultaneously complains there arent enough people to do the work. Crews lack basic tools and resources, and recieve no training, opportunities for growth, or investment from the company at all. There is no incentive to work here or even care about anything beyond collecting a relatively mediocre paycheck. Most of management has no idea how to actually do the field work, and therefore have no idea how to correct problems when they arise. Ultimately, this is a company that milks talent for all they're worth to make a profit, and will utterly destroy a company to do so. This is company is American greed at its finest.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your customer, and tell them you're unqualified to do the work. Give your turf to a company thats earned it.

    Pros

    Decent leadership, promotes safety, promotes solid values

    Cons

    Old IT infrastructure and tools, lack of career growth, unwillingness of management to understand geographical challenges between markets, lack of consistent processes across markets

    Advice to Management

    There are plenty of developers out there that have the skillset to improve our internal systems in a timely fashion. Continual issues with our tools, systems and IT infrastructure create frustration with the employees.

    Pros

    They have a lot of great knowledgeable employees willing to help anyone one at anytime. you are never left feeling in the dark or confused. Starting salary was good. Work from home was required for this position. I loved my time there.

    Cons

    Bonus incentives in place have unrealistic requirements that prevent them from being reached, it feels like the proverbial carrot on a stick.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize when firing an employee for a mistake is actually a bigger mistake.
    Also, keep up the good work.
