Family company, great employees around me.
Pros: free lunch, relaxed atmosphere, close to home
Cons: owner is my father, business not doing well
Champion Systems, Inc. sells, designs, installs, and programs Fire Alarm, Temperature Control, Security, Nurse Call, Audio/Video, Card Access, Intercom, and CCTV Systems for large industrial and commercial buildings. I started in wire pulling, moved to estimating and sales, and found that the engineering and design side of the business fit my skills better. Eventually I was able to run a few jobs as project manager, they all started and finished smoothly. I have since spent the majority of the last 3-4 years doing graphic engineering, fire alarm/temperature control engineering and technician work.
