    Just don't have enough for me.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    You need to know what your doing. Titles mean nothing if you can't do the work. Sub-standard work, contractors do not want to work for these companies. So, I found a job with Comcast.

    I worked at Quanta Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Fairly flexible work environment. There is a lot of growth that is happening so the jobs are stable. Senior management (Directors, VPs, etc) are reasonable and seem to be easy to approach and work with.

    Cons

    They don't believe in working from home, though some teams do it anyway. Regardless of what they say, you are expected to be on call 24/7. There are no SLAs in place for any system. Because of this stress levels are very high. Some managers are very good, others are horrible and should not be in the role given to them. All decisions come from a small group at the top so don't expect to make a real change in procedures or projects. You would do good to just keep your head down and do your work.

    Advice to Management

    Managers and below need training on how to deal with people. Adopt a policy to allow people to work from home. Actually develop polices and SLAs.

    Pros

    You can build up your knowledge and get proper certifications but don't allow people to use you to their advantage and then throw you to the side after

    Cons

    Politics, Criticism instead of optimism, barely home, inside clicks create negative enthusiasm and poisons the morale. People that should be in upper management aren't and the ones that are not all but some should've never been given a lead position much less upper management

    Advice to Management

    A lot of dedicated people lost their drive due to not handling Management with the same Outlook as laborers. I was the most dedicated employee til I was passed over and threw to the curb due to a micro managing insecure job scared drama King

    Pros

    They operate with a small company entrepreneurial spirit, although they have 75 operating companies and 25,000 employees. Great benefits and a good HR department.

    Cons

    Each of the 75 operating companies under Quanta run their own business, so there is a loss of the overall goals that Quanta is looking to achieve across the board.
