    Pros

    Secure work environment, material support is very satisfactory. Interview process and safety programs insure that coworkers are screened to very high standards. Each employee can save you life, if you would ever need such a service.

    Cons

    Don't make mistakes, or you will be dismissed.

    Advice to Management

    Stand behind your people. They have passed through a very rigorous and extensive training program. When employees make mistakes in the field, Hold a lessons learned meeting. Invite the customer to discuss possible ways to avoid placing employees in such high pressure situation. Where one mistake can not only cost them the job, but their career. Which impacts their retirement pension.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay, health coverage, bonuses, good fit for some, others fall between the cracks.

    Cons

    People are Overworked,everything is last minute, very disorganzied work place. Shallow corporate mentality , just another number. I can't say that much more about it because it such a large company. My experience has been mostly negative. I've been told that I would need to relocate or travel to move up, they have provided me with zero training in the year I've been there. The health care is not great. Things seem to be getting better but I don't know it's worth staying where I'm at. No real opportunity, only those with a bachelor's degree or higher are successful in corporate world.

    Advice to Management

    Be truthful in your hiring process. Don't say you don't know how much health care premiums are. Don't lie about the job, layoffs, or anything else. Just be honest. Give more raises, recognize hardwork and reward it.
