    Pros

    Beautiful campus, and great place to gain entry-level experience. Excellent growth opportunity for those without degree or institutional education

    -Fitting the personality or "Ruppert-mold" is required for upward mobility -Expect compensation at least 12-15% below industry standard while corp management compensated above average -50+ hrs per week are expected for most salaried employees -Company's business model is volume-driven despite lacking resources to achieve quality control -Employees are "rewarded" with quietly required natural light beer hang-outs

    Pros

    Free beer after 30 days with no accidents. Offer full line of benefits, and cell phone for drivers.

    Cons

    It is hard work with no incentive. Hours are typically 7 to 5, but sometimes longer. Unrealistic expectations for hours to complete jobs. Hard to advance past field manager position. No appreciation for work you do.
