    Pros

    The company is supportive with training, education & career development.

    Cons

    They will lead you down a career path to nowhere only for the benefit of themselves. Will give false promises and full you with salaried duties but pay you less than average hourly compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Until you realize the people in the Gimba who actually does the work is your core group you will continue to have high turnover and increased spending for training. You have to give deserved opportunities for advancement from within.

    Salary Non-Exempt. Great Family Culture, very relaxed environment.

    Cons

    Unclear expectation from remote management (IT Manager)

    Frame up the expectations for the remote technicians.

    Pros

    For the most part, you are working with other great associates. The pay is decent depending on your department, but overall I have enjoyed SDLC.

    Cons

    Each department is like a completely different company. Nothing is the same across the company, and the warehouse and transportation are enemies in most locations.

    Advice to Management

    On the transportation side of things, you need to stop investing in CNG as soon as possible. CNG is solely taking down the transportation department and it is obvious to anyone who works here.

    This company has so much to offer if you are willing to put in the time. It is all about work, life, balance type of environment. I have gained so much from the time I have invested in this company.

    Cons

    I have none, I HIGHLY recommend them.
