    Pros

    Great pay. Teamwork is excellent. Tech supervisors are amazing and ensure you have what you need to succeed. Plenty of overtime if you are interested in that.

    Cons

    Work life balance is not there. Instead of hiring more techs for the work load they just continue to pile on the overtime overworking the techs. Spending tons of time out of town and away from family.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people to ensure you don't burn out the techs.

    See people as people and instead of numbers and/or replaceable. Some people have a value that can't be replace with a new person off the streets with no experience.
