    I have been working at SUMMIT Electric Supply full-time

    Pros

    This past 5 months I've really seen a lot of good changes and I'm very excited to be working at Summit. I've learned communication is key if you wish to grow in the company. I absolutely love the work I do and the people I work with.

    Cons

    As with lots of companies, there is a lot of gossip. We've always had a heavy workload, but with 2020 and some changes we had to make, the workload can be a little extreme at times.

    I worked at SUMMIT Electric Supply full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Summit is working to change the culture and has finally decided to get with the future and change its technology supporting the business. The work schedule is flexible and they really help you when needed. The hr department and the training departments have made amazing strides. The people are amazing.

    Cons

    Health benefits are absolutely garbage. The business is a 500 mill a year company but Health insurance costs 700 dollars for a family. The business is pulling itself in too many directions and leadership struggles to keep the ship afloat because of to many talking heads. No formal policy backing and enforcement. There is alot of well just do it this time and a refusal to adhere to the set forth policy. The sales side is pushy and has no understanding of how the corporate departments work and try to circumvent any attempts made to establish procedures for support. Alot of I want it yesterday requsts. Little to no communication between the corporate departments, Corporate decision makers and sales team. When projects are initiated the business has a bad habbit of pushing last minute work to the corporate departments with no project lead up time or understanding of the work load the corporate support teams are carrying. Leadership focuses only on sales and makes no effort to understand the corporate support teams or their needs. Leadership absent and in meetings to often. New ceo only met with sales teams and made no effort to meet with the it team. Work load is un balanced within teams causing work overload for employees.

    I worked at SUMMIT Electric Supply full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Meet *some* good hard working people.

    Cons

    Very hostile work environment from the front office to warehouse personnel. After some employees have left/fired, a berage of insults to them were prevalent. Alcohol was some times brought in during work hours. One thing that really bothered me was when the CEO came in and treated low position personnel like garbage. Shook the hands of everyone that worked in sales but none to the warehouse associates.
