Pros: by far, the biggest pro about this job is the people i work with. my co-workers are intelligent, fun people that i have grown close to over the years.
Cons: healthcare benefits have declined with each new iteration of the company (adc to te, te to bluestream). new procedures are added regularly, adding time to projects that haven't been quoted with those changes in mind, which can lead to lower margins, which then need explaining.
Life with BlueStream is a continuous flow of installation projects at all stages of completion. I typically have ten to twelve projects consecutively, spaced across the life cycle of our installation process. I enjoy the challenges.
My co-workers and management are skilled, talented people that do their best for our clients, and we have been recognized – more... as a leader in the telecommunications field for many years (formerly Tyco Electronics Connectivity, and formerly ADC Professional Services).
I am used to traveling for surveys across the country, and I enjoy this aspect of the job. I also enjoy working on the drawings and schematics used to visually show the installation scope (front equipment drawings, wiring diagrams, etc). – less
