    some of the management team needs to not have there friends or family work for them it looks like favouritizm.

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

    Pros

    They give 21 day vacation which is really nice. The people I work are just great. Great team. I enjoy working with crew like that. Also you don't need any tools they have everything you need.

    Cons

    Pretty much the only thing is that the pay is low...I feel like the company could give more money to employees but someone decides to just do something else to it...

    Advice to Management

    My manager is very cool and nice. I never had such a great manager. The upper management is not as great...

    Pros

    I came to work their for their social mission, but I stayed as long as I did for the career growth, benefits and the generally respectful environment.

    Cons

    The wages are not as high as they are at 1st tier contractors or at the end customers.

    Keep focusing on providing opportunities for employees with disabilities and on providing a respectful work environment. Try to find other ways to reduce costs to allow higher wages.
