    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Par Electrical Contractors full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Pay for some positions is at or above market. Benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    Leadership is concerned with alignment with parent company, no longer a culture of service and delivery for the customer. Focus is on headquarters objectives, even if they are in direct violation of contracts or successful business relationships. If it didn't come from Houston it is not to be considered or performed.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. You made your choice and started down a path that you will not be able to change. Enjoy the decent pay and bonuses while they last. A KC icon for 60+ years will be destroyed within 5 years.

    Pros

    Name brand in the industry. For electrical lineman might pay ok while you’re working. Coast to coast contracts while they have them .

    Cons

    Mediocre pay and benefits. Uncaring unfeeling management and supervisors. No one knows what the future will hold . Avoid at all costs

    Pros

    The only thing good is the benefits.

    Cons

    Horrible managment that doesn't know the industry. No better than the old management that's still there and needs to go bye bye. Lots of fraternizing. This place is a joke to other contractors nation wide.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to save money, look who's stock is getting ready to vest..... Also, one of the roots to your problem is right in front of you. Just open your eyes.

      Pros

      Your benefits are paid for

      Cons

      Atrocious leadership. The treatment of their employees is borderline criminal. This is where you go to have your career die. There is no employee handbook or actual in writing rules, this way leadership is not accountable. You get two weeks vacation, maybe less or maybe more depending it you are liked or not. If you are on vacation you are expected to be available 24/7. Don't expect that you will get the resources you...

      Advice to Management

      This isn't the 1940s anymore. Take a look in the mirror and you might determine why you are loosing your employees.

      Pros

      Challenging work environment with lots of support. Great mix of field work and office work allows for weeks to go quickly.

      Cons

      Contractor role does not offer enough security when supporting a young family or considering large purchases for first time home buyers.

      Advice to Management

      Offer both positive criticism and cudos, don't focus so much on just improvement but current strengths.
