    Pros

    Cons

    Just about everything else. Over worked, Mismanaged, Ignorant supervisors, Rude upper management. 90 percent of the planers are looking for new jobs. Old rundown building in the middle of nowhere. Not a easy place to get to. Half the week I did not have any breaks or a lunch hour. Pay is decent but not for what you have to put up with. Morning meetings are a joke! No one can hear the Canada team. Such a waist a time....

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Traemand full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Mist staff would help you most of the time with any issue or problem you had albeit with customers, coworkers, equipment, etc.

    Cons

    As an installer, the company had quite a bit of work but didn't hire enough help or decent employees at that. Some druggies and slackers. They also piled on the workload with no breaks in between projects. A lack of good scheduling.

    Advice to Management

    Try to listen more to your good installers when they offer advice. Especially when experienced ones are difficult to come by.

    Thanks for the nice review and the “approves of CEO” (I like that one a lot!). The Las Vegas construction labor market has been tight which is why there was always more work than there were workers. It is a good market and we have made a lot of progress from a standing start in ...

    I worked at Traemand full-time

    Pros

    There are many good people that work here that make things easier to deal with Customer interactions and seeing the complete product is always rewarding

    Cons

    No culture, we are treated as wage slaves and expected to do one thing and one thing only: put up numbers They don't see us people they see us as numbers and therefore push us to do unimaginable revenue without going over in detail all the things the client needs to know prior to or during a renovation. Planners don't know how to plan and operate remotely so they never see a space which means it is up to installers...

    Advice to Management

    Maybe make work fun and hire someone for HR that can actually deal with the pot that is boiling over currently and you'll see better results rather than bending over the whip and expecting results from having someone constantly hovering over everyone's shoulders. Instead of being profit hungry and blind to the problems and just barreling through them because you want to sell the company and get off the boat, maybe...

    Pros

    you get to where a lot of different hats and learn how the business operates

    Cons

    employees are not valued, turnover is high and the job can put alot of stress on you and your home life.

    Advice to Management

    hire from within. Grow the people that know your business and have been with you for a long time. Reward your loyal employees and the turnover will stop killing you.

    Since you worked at Traemand kindly reach out to me on my cell phone or email, anonymously if you would like. We have grown very fast and put the business through a lot of change which has meant asking a lot of our people. That goes into the “wearing a lot of hats.” Since our business ...

    Pros

    Great co workers.. super approachable CEO/founder and anyone in a position of authority. They want to hear what you have to say and how your doing. They all actually care. Great work life.. you get your weekends, great benefits, & competitive pay! Would overall recommend to anyone and don’t plan on leaving anytime soon!

    Cons

    Not a lot I can think of.. workload can get a bit hectic but as long as your willing to actually work hard it’s not bad. I would love a 401k.

    I worked at Traemand full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    when there is work, you work

    Cons

    they have a lack of work. They don't treat employees right. They'll ask you do to work different then what you were hired for. Refuse and you're gone!

    Advice to Management

    Admit when you made a mistake. Fix it! Management needs to have more understanding and training in installations.

    I have been working at Traemand full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits, opportunity for growth within the company, management is very understanding of issues that arise on a daily basis. Competitive wages.

    Cons

    As long as you're willing to work hard there are very few cons. For me the biggest con travel. Sometimes we are required to travel 4 to 5 hours round-trip a day to get to a job site.

    Advice to Management

    I am excited about all of the changes within our organization. It seems like we are really making a push to provide everyone with the proper tools to perform their job as best as possible.
