    Pros

    Team Fishel will be what you make of it. This company recognizes potential and they will do everything in their power to help you develop as a teammate. The opportunities for advancement are incredible. This company is a true team.

    Cons

    There are no downsides for self motivated people who are unafraid of an incredible challenge. This is hard work and should not be entered into lightly.

    Advice to Management

    Continue providing high quality training opportunities. Choosing and developing your own talent is a great team building tool. It really shows the company's commitment to promoting from within.

    Pros

    Family run business, open door policy from the CEO to the newest teammate. Has a profit sharing plan that makes everyone feel like an owner and that how they act and perform impacts them directly along with their fellow teammates. Has many different locations and jobs to cross train through.

    Cons

    Can be slow advancing with technology at times.

    Advice to Management

    Hires from within when a teammates shows the skills and the desire to advance. Several of the officers started their careers as a labor and moved up. Has the Jeff Keeler Leadership Academy to help their superiors gain the skills needed to advance

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

    Pros

    I gathered a great deal of knowledge of natural gas.

    Cons

    Every worker is too worried about their title and not the work at hand. "Too many chiefs and not enough indians!"

    Advice to Management

    At our division our management hasn't had real life struggle, the silver spoon was inserted. The struggle isn't there for them! My advice, put yourself in a working man shoes with a family that has one income. As well as making a great deal of empty promises.

    Pros

    I came to Team Fishel after completing an enlistment with the Marine Corps. I don't think the transition could have been any smoother. The team environment is great in the area I work in. There are several seasoned teammates that have been here for 30+ years, that shows you the career capabilities of this family owned company. I have learned and continue to learn so much from these teammates. We have great diversity and a great footprint. Team Fishel has always treated their teammates as their number one asset.

    Cons

    As others have stated, Team Fishel pays a fair wage. However the benefits are better then most.

    Advice to Management

    Continue honoring our values and recognizing the importance of great teammates.

    I have been working at Team Fishel full-time

    Pros

    Everyone at Team Fishel wants to help and see you succeed. For a fairly large company, there seems to be family feel in the air with great values. The only thing stopping you from working your way up to a supervisory level is YOU. Advancement is encouraged and to some degree expected. They offer decent pay and great benefits. It is a great company to earn a living with.

    Cons

    As with any construction company you may have to travel. Although the pay is decent and competitive, you will not get "rich" working here, but the benefits are better than most.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to treat your teammates (what employees are called and considered here) as your best asset.

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

    Pros

    Growing up in a family that worked in the Telecom industry, I have seen a lot of good and bad companies. Fishel is by far the best company I have even worked for or seen. It is a large enough company that provides room to grow, but also has a great family atmosphere to make it feel like a small company. They provide wonderful training at all levels, and have a great safety culture.

    Cons

    It is not the highest paying company in the market but has wonderful benefits. It is not a place to chase another dollar but a place to make a career at. The benefit packages they offer out weigh an extra dollar 10 fold.
