    Pros

    Good training, depending on the department you're in. Stable company that had steady business. Lots of overtime pay. Great upper management.

    Cons

    Lack of service cross training, unpredictable schedule, on call rotation with little incentive.

    Advice to Management

    Cross train employees to prevent one employee from being the only one capable of servicing certain clients.

    Pros

    Many promotions from within. A very varied work force, from technicians to sales professionals.

    Cons

    Many of the technicians, while paid for all hours, are required to work long hours due to the nature of a service company.
