    Pros

    Upper management is leading the company in the right direction. The company as a whole is always striving to be the best. The culture from upper management all the way down to the local levels is amazing and it makes this a fun place to work.

    Cons

    Moderate turnover, but the company is constantly changing (for the better) so that is somewhat expected.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to pursue customer excellence as well as push for complete transparency to the local levels.

    Pros

    Management listens...especially when the safety card is played. Great atmosphere for any hard working person.

    Cons

    Turnover rate too high, once trained people take their talents elsewhere and wasting time and money retraining. Pay at that level should increase

    Advice to Management

    Management is in meeting all day and should open up a better forum for all employees to share and voice opinions and ideas ... and use people with longevity to teach and train better

    Pros

    At Williams Scotsman there is always a professional environment. You have the opportunity to grow, gain knowledge every day. Every one of us is always willing to assist each other to get things done the right way the first time around. The respect for everyone and equality is not negotiable. The compensations and benefits are awesome. The work/life balance is made to fit every employee. Senior management is down to earth. No one looks you over the shoulder and everyone at every level has open door policy and is ready to listen and help.
    We are well trained to work on our own at a fast pace. When you step out of any training you are ready to go and very confident.
    We put our customers’ needs first at all times. We listen carefully to their needs with no need to be reminded because we love what we do and who we work for. We work for our customers.
    I personally have worked for various companies throughout my career. Have worn many different hats and I can say without a doubt: "Williams Scotsman is the very best company I have ever worked for and will ever work for, because I have absolutely no plans to leave until retirement. I will always be grateful for the best opportunity in a life time.

    There may or may not be downsides at Williams Scotsman, however I have none to share as of yet in my career with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Management don't fix what is not broken. Just keep listening to all employee's and customers as you do. We will continue growing and being the best in the industry.
