    I have been working at MasTec full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people, I have developed some of the most genuine irreplaceable relationships with my coworkers. I have the opportunity to get somewhere far if I would only get my numbers higher.

    Cons

    Pay is insane.. Sometimes the pay is good but when you have a bad week or buy the health insurance you'll have to leech off of family and friends to survive even if you work 60+ hours a week. They don't match the pay with the actual work you have to do.

    Advice to Management

    IDK. I'd say something like, increase our pay per piece but we know that it's not up to them. Our numbers are decent at our site but they set standards that make all incentives unobtainable. No bonuses. The point system is based strictly on your supervisor... If he doesn't like you he'll point you for every second you are late.

    Pros

    The CEO of the company is really a wonderful person. The insurance is the best I have seen!

    Cons

    I am sad that I am leaving but have nothing negative to say.

    Advice to Management

    Your surveys do not work. People are scared to tell you the truth.

    Pros

    All kinds if you want someone else to take credit

    Cons

    Upper management will back stab you to cover their own inadequacies.

    Advice to Management

    Value employees that stood with you when you took on something you couldn't handle instead of bringing someone in that has no clue and fired your best pm to promote buddies that will fail

    Benefits, steady paycheck, steady work , no surprises , great equipment and work gear .

    Office politicians, back stabbing , lack of experience for most of the CM's and PM's.

    Take ONLY people from the field and make them the CM's and PM's not someone who has never been on a site ever .

    I worked at MasTec full-time

    Pros

    There are no pros whatsoever

    Cons

    There is no overtime. Instead you are paid half time for all overtime. I would work 12 hour days and only get paid for 9. They call it piece rate!

    Pros

    Seemed like a good company when they bought my former company. promised a bright future with the company. NOPE

    Cons

    As soon as they bought out the company I worked for they started laying people off and forcing them out. No chance to prove that you were a good worker or anything.
