    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.

    Pros

    None come to mind. There was too much dysfunction between the numerous business units to reach any common goals

    Cons

    This is a company that buys smaller successful business and then feeds on their profits until they lose the contract with the client.

    Advice to Management

    Mastec's reputation is that of a scavenger. Mastec will never appear on my resume because of your bad reputation in the telecom and wireless industries. After the client ended your contract (earned by another company that you bought), I discovered that several recruiting firms would not even consider hiring candidates who were affiliated in previous years with Mastec

    Pros

    You learn quickly how to multitask because you can never finish one responsibility at a time, cross-trained in multiple functions due to constant layoffs.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible as an office staff. If you're liked by local management, you'll be liked by upper management. But as soon as you mention your concerns you become a target. Also, you are expected to do so much work with little to no recognition, especially compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the Covenant as posted by CEO.

    Pros

    Great pay...there are also opportunities for advancement. Keep a low profile and meet your obligations and you are golden.

    Cons

    Shifting priorities/ many changes. Sometimes the management styles can be a bit tough, however it seems to be an industry trend.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time seeing tasks and obligations from a departmental and average worker view. It will change how they make quick decisions.
