    I have been working at Rosendin Electric full-time

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Great benefits and overall compensation package. They do practice a top down approach to communication and show a commitment to the well being of their employees.

    Cons

    The only downsides to Rosendin are shared throughout the construction industry. As work slows down in an area of you are not willing to travel you risk unemployment.

    Advice to Management

    Do your best to float skilled employees through lean times. It is far easier than trying to rehire and or retrain employees

    I have been working at Rosendin Electric full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pros seem to be that this is a large company that could have position possibilities nationwide. That is an early impression, and have not had the chance to "test" that theory.

    Cons

    1) The job "interview" was not typical. A Senior Manager, not directly associated with the Project, called and grilled me for 30 minutes and then we negotiated compensation. First impression was they wanted me before they spoke to me, and called as a formality and to discuss compensation. This interview was very casual and seemed rushed.

    2) Employee On-Boarding is absolutely laughable. The employees are sent to the job site and are forced to fend for themselves. If it were not for a select few of mindful employees, new folks would be absolutely lost.

    3) Most likely this is project specific, but the Leadership "team" are very familiar with each other and are very closed off to any personnel additions to the "team". Seemingly their preference is to do things, the way they have always done it, and not listening to new ideas, that could be potentially beneficial.

    I am not sure if they are aware of their dismissive behaviors, or if it is intentional out of professional and personal insecurities. Either way, it is difficult for new employees to obtain or maintain high levels of morale.

    4) The initial impression of this "team" is: Cold and Closed. They are not open to new people or ideas.

    For the profession that I do, I would tell people to avoid this company.

    I have been working at Rosendin Electric full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I believe Rosendin Electric was and could be a great place to work; however, like all companies that grow there will be pains. The benefits package is adequate and the salaries seem to be competitive. The company is growing so there is a potential for transfer and advancement within the company.

    Cons

    The on-boarding and employee help programs are minimal to non-existent. The communication of expectations is lacking but the politics are thick. Everyone seems to be fighting for some "slice of the pie" but not working together to achieve a common goal. Amid the weekly power struggles, it's difficult to complete a task successfully.

    Advice to Management

    You've got some bad eggs in some key spots that tend to strangle morale as well as marginalize talent. It's a little too "good ole boy" and not enough focus on creating something great.

    I have been working at Rosendin Electric full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great division managers and project teams, estimating staff is knowledgeable and upper management is involved without being micro-managers. Being an ESOP, people care a lot about the company's bottom line because it comes back to them at the end of the day.

    Cons

    There are always a few bad apples in any company, best to ignore them.

    Advice to Management

    Succession planning is a MUST, our industry is getting older and we don't want to be left behind!
