    I worked at YESCO full-time

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, family owned company. The majority of people enjoy their jobs and there is great potential for sales.

    Cons

    Internal politics can get in the way of projects and slow down the sales process, which only affects the customer.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back incentive trips and company picnics/partys. Employees like knowing they are appreciated.

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

    Pros

    YESCO has a great business model. They offer the full package to customers(estimating, engineering, design, manufacturing, installation and maintenance). Departments are designed to work together and that makes jobs challenging and fun sometimes.

    Some sales people really do take care of their customers and a few technicians provide just the best service out there. The local Administration, Estimating and Design employ talents and devoted employees that have been with the company for many years.

    Employees are great people and they put together pot lucks and create the company culture.

    Payment is by-weekly, which is nice.

    Company offers insurance, 401K, PTO, and paid holidays.

    Cons

    Company is very old fashion. Men lead the efforts here and women are seen mostly in a supportive role. It is family owned business but it acts as a corporate when conducting business. There is a lot of red tape to cut through to get things done. Company has some processed in place but there is no manual to figure them out. You are on your own, plus the processes change as people come and go.

    If you are women, you most likely work in the admin department of on the AR and AP, or as a secretary in another department. In the sales, men already get the best accounts to start and women are just left to work on their own. Sometimes if they do better, the accounts are taken away from them (there is always a good reason), so you will be set to fail. On the other hand, if you are a guy, you are listening to, given some good accounts to start with, you could even get promoted or moved from one department to another until you succeed.

    The main program used is dos based, and it connects to another windows based program which connects to tech's tablets. This combination does not always work and information gets lost. Newer programs have been promised but not uploaded or trained on yet.

    Sales and Operations and sometimes Administration seem to work against each other rather than together as a team to best serve the customer. Processes take forever and there is no accountability. Overall there is no sense of ownership.
    Upper management is disconnected from what goes on in the field. They are only driven by numbers.

    The way everything is set up if very complex and hard to trace. Payments are not very transparent and you need to pay attention or you might not even get paid for your work.

    There are no companies summer or holiday parties offered by the company. Technicians and shop are union so they get treated different by Union.
    Insurance is on the expensive side.

    Advice to Management

    Know the value of your employees, support and promote the efforts no matter what the gender is. Try to see the potential and value women bring to this company.

    Listen and provide the necessary tools to your employees to ensure their success and you will see the company's profit increase.

    Cleaner, leaner processes are needed in all aspects. This will ensure increase the profit margin and have returned customers.

    Give your employees ownership and encourage them to have pride in what they do.

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

    Pros

    It is a good company overall. They try to provide you with tools needed to do you the job. Most the people there are friendly.

    Cons

    Often you are expected to do things with little or no training. They do not want to pay much but that is a Utah issue. Breaks are short and limited. Often hours are long with mandatory overtime not preannounced.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees they are your greatest asset. Try to be more understanding of their issues and needs. Also, train them rather than throwing something at them and expecting then to just figure it out.

    I worked at YESCO full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    YESCO has a very creative environment where there multiple types of creative projects to work. It could custom sign design, slot design and custom exterior sign projects. You never lacked for variety or excitement.

    Cons

    The only thing I can say negatively is that the sign market can be fickle financially. They were tied to the casino market in Vegas. Also, they was very little room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Provide opportunities for advancement and forecast trends in the marketplace.
