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

    Pros

    Great environment, opportunity to advance, encourage advancing education, the people are great to work with and there is very little down time. The company is growing quickly so there is always something new to learn

    Cons

    Long hours summer causes many long shifts. There is a lot of politics to deal with which can be frustrating at times, communication between departments can be a problem at times

    Pros

    Good pay and good management, lots of overtime available if you need the money. My summers would pay for my college tuition each semester.

    Cons

    Work orders will come it later in the day and sometimes make you stay longer even if its a Friday but that's the nature of the job and I never complained because you still get paid overtime

    I have been working at Northwest Cascade full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    we have a good team. pay is ok. hours are ok. casual atmosphere. health benefits are somewhat decent. hours are too varied for real life.

    Cons

    lack of confidence in service equaling price. benefits are terrible. no vacation or sick leave so people come to work sick.

    Advice to Management

    go back to the basics. give benefits based on what is expected. pay commission to all sales people not just the men.

    Pros

    They're a successful and diverse company. Most of the people I worked with were good hard-working people.

    Cons

    Very crass and informal.
    Distant projects make for very early mornings and late nights.

    Advice to Management

    Clean things up a bit.

    Pros

    Strong benefit package, stable industry, management listens to concerns and your ideas to improve the situation, then allows you to make measurable contributions to its success. Offers funding for education in order to advance your skills to grow within the company.

    Cons

    Stuck in an old school mindset. Demands a lot from their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to change with the times.
