A good company to work for.
Pros: good pay
Cons: long hours
Working at AVI as a Facilities Manager is a fast paced multifacited job with several different issues all happening at one time. My day may start out adding or taking people out of the security system in any location across the country. At the same time I am directing facilitators as well as subcontractors in multiple buildings. A lot of the decisions are made within moments and because of the multiple building setting, there may be several issues going on at the same time. Security in the buildings is paramount and unless the contractor has been cleared by myself, they would require an escort. This along with building, safety, generator maintenance/testing, plumbing, electrical and several issues create a fast paced and quick days, often leading into overtime because of the amount of work required or emergencies that may arise.
The biggest thing I learned during my tenor at AVI was how to multi-tasking and working in the corporate work.
Most of my tenor, I was a direct report to the COO. My experience with him was unique because of what he knew and taught me about corporate America.
The most enjoyable part of the job, for me was making as many people happy, if they had and issue, and at the same time feeling like I was needed.
