    I worked at Omni Cable (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Senior level management takes good care of its employees with an ESOP program. Attentive to those employees serving in the military and supports them 100%. Easy casual atmosphere.

    Cons

    Traditionally caters to men. Not well in promotion of women.

    Pros

    Omni has matched 401k contributions for almost every year that I have been employed. Often over 50% of every dollar contributed. They have clearly documented family leave regulations that are more than fair. An ESOP company gifts company stock to all employees. Great atmosphere.

    Cons

    Remote branches don't receive same attention as the home branch. More mentoring and opportunities exist at HQ. Some managers are not as "on board" as they could be...blame corporate for their issues.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to get remote branches more attention and better attitudes.

    "Management is an issue; not a family-friendly organization"

    Pros

    A reason one would want to work for Omni Cable is the benefit plan. They do not match your 401k contributions, but do provide employee stock options.

    Cons

    The organization is not employee-friendly and does not use good practices when addressing things such as family leave time and sick time.

    Advice to Management

    Offer 401k matching, review and be aware of Family Medical Leave Act regulations to avoid violating employee rights, and keep management trained in the latest compliance areas, such as sexual harassment and employee coaching.

    I have been working at Omni Cable full-time

    Pros

    Pay is decent, benefits are better than average however the extensive layers in managent hinders productivity.

    Cons

    Wire and cable is based on the current price of copper which can make for a difficult sale if the price of copper goes down.

    Advice to Management

    Thin out the extensive layers of management.

    I worked at Omni Cable full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    ESOP. That's really it

    Cons

    Zero Flexibility
    Very poor work life balance
    Elite, Obtuse management
    Zero advancement unless you're a male that golfs and in the clique

    Advice to Management

    Stop assuming what you're employees want and actually start really listening. Learn to grow with the times and technology.
    Providing a "pumping room" for new Moms is not a "perk", it's a legal right.

    Pros

    On site gym (PA), ESOP (free retirement), 401k match (less than half match - decreases every year), work environment is easy going

    Cons

    Lots of changes in mgmt, minimal vertical movement opportunities, promote from outside the company, business is tied to closely to fossil fuels, nepotism is very prevalent.

    diversify markets

    I worked at Omni Cable full-time

    Pros

    Company has a secure place in the industry, offers health & 401k, ESOP shares based on tenure and salary. Some upper level managers and execs are willing and gracious to be in touch with lower level employees and give them growth opportunities when it makes sense for the company.

    Cons

    Company has been growing a lot and included a lot of mid level managers that either don't get the big picture or don't know what their employees are doing each day. This has changed the culture from a family to corporate feel.

    Advice to Management

    Continually talk to your employees and let them review their managers. Pay attention when multiple people have problems with the same person.
