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

    Pros

    Waltham Services is an excellent company that provides top quality service to their customers.
    The company provides great training and support to their employees. The work is challenging, the people are experts at what they do and they sincerely care about their employees and customers. A great place to work!

    Cons

    Nothing bad to say so far!

    I worked at Waltham Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Company Car, but that's only so management can monitor ever single solitary move you make, and then call you out on it in front of everyone

    Cons

    Don't walk away...RUN away! This place recently went through some management changes and they set the standards very high, VERY high. If you are not making the unrealistic numbers that they want you to make, you will be fired. Make no mistake. They will tell you that no ones job is at stake; the day after you see your own job posted on job boards. The management does not care about you as a person ONE BIT. You are a sales machine. Nothing less / nothing more. You make money or you walk. They don't care how, moral, immoral, smart, nice, mean, ugly, nasty, helpful, unhelpful, customer relations, cold called, stolen account from someone else or got the account legit...DOESN'T matter...JUST GET the $$. Did you see the movie Glengarry Glenross? These people live and breath this pathetic world. How about Boiler Room? See that one? The sales manager made us watch that one for training!!! Inappropriate? Absolutely! He didn't care; He wants us to live that life.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to where you came from.

    Pros

    it was a job...watch your back!

    Cons

    horrible management, no team playing, expensive for health benefits, no HR person, indifferent people everywhere...I actually had two bosses; one of whom I didn't meet till I was there for a month!! I reported to the guy who interviewed me...but he wasn't the person I reported to....but he did my annual review, since my real boss confessed he had no clue what I did!!

    Advice to Management

    Every mgmnt position is politically-driven, no training

    I worked at Waltham Services full-time

    Pros

    Technicians have it much better than the administrative group.

    Cons

    There is no team effort here. Someone quits and their job is piled onto others. The best way to describe the attitude is a dull and lifeless. Everyone has an attitude and it's all negative.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some money on your employees. It sucks seeing other companies give their employees parties and events. Jump into the 20th century and let people work from home.

    I worked at Waltham Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers have been really decent. Company vehicle provided for sales and service outside positions.

    Cons

    No career advancement opportunities, educational opportunities or tools to perform the job effectively. Management knows nothing about sales or sales management and thus not an advocate for the sales rep. Pay plan, health benefits and 401K are mediocre at best. Facilities (regional headquarters & branches) are unkempt & ramshackle. Morale is low with employees waiting for the next nasty-gram to come from the boss berating their work.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and read some articles on the current state of the American workplace. Learn how to attract top talent and retain the very few skilled workers who are left.

    Let the reps sell and do their jobs...that is what they were hired to do....
