    Good group of workers that value team spirit and value hard work and safety.

    Talk more to the work force, manage foremen properly instead of allowing them to ride rough shod over the apprentices.

    I worked at Par Electrical Contractors full-time

    Pros

    Good stepping stone for beginning of career. Decent pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Not very stable, not meant for long term employment. Project specific based positions.

    Advice to Management

    Enviro positions are not personal clean up crews for the workers. Get rid of good ol boy mentality.

    I worked at Par Electrical Contractors full-time

    Pros

    Par Electric is a national company and they always have work somewhere, so job stability is better than average.

    Cons

    As with most large corporations, the politics is something to be reckoned with - there is definitely a pecking order and reasonable thinking doesn't always win.

    I worked at Par Electrical Contractors full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity for steadfast growth in a booming industry that isn't phasing out anytime soon. Okay and benefit package (not up to industry standards though; this could potentially be a con). Knowledgeable and approachable management.

    Cons

    Lack of communication from management to lower level employees. Pre-planning for the particular project I wasn't on point and mixed messages from one boss to another as to what/where/how something was to be done.

    Advice to Management

    Effective communication is key. Treat everyone as you would treat your own family. Being demanding is one thing as you must meet strict guidelines, but doing so in a standoffish manner or unpleasant way only leads to negative results and/or failures. Pay your employees based on their credentials as well as industry standards rather than what you "see" as being a "solid" pay rate given the scope of the job. The budget for any job is essential but making promises to "grow" and have an increase in one's pay after a year at the company then throwing even more responsibilities on him or her and keeping them at the same rate is ridiculous!
