    I have been working at Team Fishel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a great company and I have become part of the Fisher Family. We are all part owners of the company due to the fact that we fund the cash profit sharing plan.

    Cons

    Being able to take what you have learned and go elsewhere is a very hard task. I have learned a lot working with Team Fishel, my goal is to continue to work for this company but I don't think a transfer would be in my best interest.

    Advice to Management

    More jobs need to be created as they have been in the past. This a growing company and will continue to grow. Take more advice from those teammates out in the field because they are the ones that are physically making the company profitable.

    I worked at Team Fishel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great leader and great people. Like the job.

    Cons

    2nd in charge rules with an iron fist and threats. Vacation is after one year and only week of vacation, no sick time, medical, dental, vision( after 60 days and the 1st of the month).

    Advice to Management

    You will never be competitive without PTO. As long as you have someone acting like your 2nd in charge does, your time is limited before all of your good people leave and you won't have anyone left to to do the work well.

    I have been working at Team Fishel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    flex schedule, laid back, the individuals that work here are all very great to work with. Some sort of raise every year.

    Cons

    No PTO or sick days, Health Insurance is just okay but has improved in my 2 years at the company. Gain little transferable knowledge due to the fact that it is so one project focused. A lot of leaders without understanding what their duties are. Little room for growth within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through and communicate with the employees. Think things through before setting things in place.
