    I worked at MasTec full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Management was awsome and acknowledged my achievements.

    Cons

    When they sold out to Occommunications they ripped me off of my 5,000 dollar sign on bonus along as well as other employees. Their actions made myself and my wife homeless caused us to live in our car.

    Advice to Management

    When you promise employees a sign on bonus keep your word. Selling out to another company isn't the employees you hired problem. You basically just sold out alot of your employees that worked hard to earn their sign on bonus and trusted you. Your actions cause financial hardship to many employees/families.

    Cons

    Zero loyalty, very poor management

    Advice to Management

    Clean House and start over. Get back to teamwork and promote from within. Get rid of the Magoon factor. They are driving that great company into the ground.

    Stick up for the Technicians, they are busting their humps to complete jobs.

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

    Pros

    It's a job... but that's about all I can say about it

    Cons

    1) Unreasonable quotas enforced by docking paycheck if not met
    2) Do anything the customer wants in order to get a perfect review for the 6-Sigma scoreboard, regardless of how unreasonable it is
    3) Must meet your time windows, regardless of how much work the previous customer needed
    4) if a customer calls to check up on when you'll be there, even if it's not even time for their appointment yet - it hurts your metrics
    5) if you call dispatch to inform them you may be late to your next appointment (due to horrible routing or the previous job requiring a lot of time) - dispatch may re-assign your job to someone else, which means you don't get paid for that job

    Advice to Management

    I can't think of anything nice to say.

    I worked at MasTec full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked with great people for the most part. Great engineering team that communicated very well. Benefits were good in my division. My division gave vehicles to managers which was a great perk.

    Cons

    Constant management changes caused problems. Benefits were not consistent across all divisions. Lack of foresight.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize when you have outstanding team members and listen to them. Do not let cronyism ruin your teams and contracts.
