    Pros

    401K with matching and medical benefits. Paid travel. Company vehicle tools and test equipment provided.

    Cons

    If you are a remote technician in some areas. There is very little work / life separation as you are purposefully understaffed even though company policies dictate that more should be working in your area. Lack of understanding of the logistics involved in remote territories from management in charge of technicians in those areas. Lack of pride in ownership and accountability from management. Lack of transparency from management to subordinates concerning happenings within the company that could either negatively or positively affect it's employees. Poor utilization of disciplinary programs, using them more as a justification to fire employees versus as a tool to help improve them. Internal parts refurbishment department is in need of huge improvements with some of these parts failing within 24hrs of installation. Which causes overtime to employees that then hurts them on inter department competitions. There is a perception within this organization that some Supervisors do not promote individuals based on merit, overall performance, and how they have best contributed to the organization. But on how they "feel" about those individuals. Some supervisors treat one mistake, "push back" against business as usual complacency, or challenge to the status quo during an evaluation period can potentially ruin any chances of promotion within the organization. Even though the mistake has not been repeated since. And that if there are any who ask for promotion from these Supervisors, even though they fully deserve one based on their merits and time worked, they are denied said promotion. There is also no clearly defined path of progression as openly stated by these Supervisors in the past. Further enforcing their decisions to promote solely on personal preference, and not on personal performance. But they are also the first to come back onto you for not following company mission / vision statements when they don't even follow the policies themselves.
